National Marketing and Business Development Manager
Based: Cincinnati

As the National Marketing and Business Development Manager for WT Partnership, I am responsible for providing day-to-day marketing and business development leadership to enhance the company’s brand, communication and sales across North America. I am particularly involved in working closely with national leadership on tactical marketing elements and end to end pursuits to grow the business, drive operational efficiencies and provide more value to clients.

I bring over 12 years’ experience of providing strategic marketing, business development and creative communications services to several high-profile A/E/C firms across the US West. Previously based in Seattle, WA since 2004, I cut my marketing teeth in the non-profit sector, cultivating philanthropic giving via content marketing and large-scale events, before transitioning my graphical and promotional messaging skillsets into developing robust bid and proposal packages for leading, global, construction consultancy and design and engineering brands.

My approach to carrying out my role at WT is largely inspired by a passion for understanding a client’s real, underlying needs and aspirations, as well as developing lasting, mutually beneficial relationships ­- a labor of love that stems from years of cultivating connections in Cincinnati & Seattle’s arts and non-profit communities.

Outside of WT, I am an active musician/performer, foodie, Nordic language enthusiast and father of two adorable/rambunctious daughters.

My previous involvement in procuring a long-ranging, high-value IDIQ project with the Port of Seattle at Sea-Tac International Airport was a particularly rewarding venture. I was engaged in all facets of my firm’s pre-marketing, research and proposal coordination effort, and was also responsible for driving marketing and technical staff engagement as we prepared our presentation and interview team. This experience was a galvanizing first effort, for what was at the time a burgeoning office/practice, and set a precedent for team cohesion and best practices on future successful bid efforts.
