Managing Director, Business Development
- At the Kaplan Thaler Group since:
- What I do:
- As Managing Director of Business Development, I am responsible for driving growth for the agency. I also work closely with our internal groups to drive innovation and ensure that we have the best resources in place to deliver on our clients’ needs.
- What I did:
- I’ve worked at some great agencies: The Martin Agency, Mad Dogs & Englishmen, Deutsch, and now the Kaplan Thaler Group. I’ve been a copywriter, an account person, and a business development geek. I love the business I’m in and the people I get a chance to work with each day.
- My smartest move:
- After living on the mesa overlooking the Rio Grande in Taos, NM, for a couple of years, my need for new challenges brought me to New York to restart my career in advertising. Ever since, I’ve been climbing in the right direction. And, most importantly, it led me to my wife and (now) two kids in a great house in Joisey (where I never thought I’d live).
