My goal is to join a team committed to growing Sales “pipeline” through the effective execution of demand generation campaigns and integrated programs using the latest technology available. To bring predictability to Marketing by improving funnel efficiency, conversion and continuous measurement of results. To ensure the right messages get to the right audiences at the right time.

Core Qualifications:

Director, Americas Marketing Operations – Qlik: May 2015 – Present.

Manage the Americas Marketing Operations team responsible for the infrastructure, process, optimization and execution of Marketing Campaigns designed to drive pipeline growth.

Manage the planning, scheduling, setup and execution of ~200 campaigns per year including physical events, on-line campaigns, 3rd Party events, webinars and telemarketing campaigns.

Own, maintain and grow the Contact Database in both quantity and quality resulting in the growth of 3x usable contacts each year. Improving the contact coverage and detail allowing for more “reach” and precise targeting by location, segment, industry, role, level, persona and account.

Manage, monitor and optimize email deliverability resulting in improvements in delivery, open, click through, and unsubscribe rate effectiveness to within 98% (or better) of industry accepted benchmarks while adhering to all Anti-SPAM regulations.

Drive the penetration of our Total Addressable Markets (TAMs) by identifying accounts that fit our target profile where we do not have contacts in our database and sourcing new contacts, from trusted sources for these accounts. By marketing to these accounts, we generated $13M of additional pipeline, $3M closed business and 450 new “white space” Opportunities.

Transitioned from behavior based lead scoring system to a predictive lead qualification and routing using 6Sense. We targeted marketing efforts at accounts demonstrating “Buyers Intent” and accelerated follow up for them resulting in $6.9M in additional sourced pipeline in 2 quarters.

Defined our Target Account Program process where we use market potential, behavior patterns, intent signals and perceived needs to craft campaigns matching our message with the prospects needs. We sourced $3M pipeline from our initial Account Based Marketing (ABM) campaign.

Work closely with Account Development Reps (ADRs) helping them understand how different signals demonstrated by a prospect provided insights to what their interests / pain points are. Through this “coaching” we saw a significant increase on contextual conversations resulting in more Marketing Qualified Leads (MQLs) and event registrations from fewer calls.

Leverage the SiriusDecisions Demand Waterfall to drive systematic improvements identifying areas in need of optimization. We define improvements and use industry benchmarks to measure of the effectiveness of our improvements.

Developed and maintained reports / analysis for Marketing forecasting, planning, monitoring, as well as Quarterly, Sales, Executive and Board Meetings.

Budget - Managed the Americas Marketing Budget planning & closing to within +- 2%.
