Not so Formal

I love social media. I love how it’s empowered consumers and taken control away from brands and agencies. I started exploring social’s transformational powers at Raytheon. I led the development of the collaboration strategy, architecture and platform development. We were trying to connect as many of our 75,000 employees (at the time) to share answers to common questions and solutions to common problems.

After almost five years at Raytheon, most involving knowledge management and collaboration, I wanted to continue working in the social space but at a bigger scale. Dachis Group was my next stop. I was the 15th employee.  I helped establish, grow and mature our start-up into a multi-million dollar strategy consulting practice. I was given the opportunity to work with the world’s largest and most influential b2b and b2c brands and companies to develop lasting and distinguished capabilities in the areas of knowledge management, integrated digital marketing, social media marketing and social business. During my time at Dachis Group, I was also lucky enough to work with some of the most influential and innovative minds in the social space: Peter Kim, Dion Hinchcliffe, Kate Niederhoffer, Jevon MacDonald, Susan Scrupski, Jeff Dachis, Dave Gray, Lee Bryant, Jen van der Meer, Peter Fasano, Greg Verdino, Cynthia Pflaum, Clint! Runge, Lars Plougmann.
