Stacey masters the details, sets a plan, works the plan and delivers results. At the same time, she leads with vision, inspires teams (both direct and indirect) and plays to win the war (not the battle). The highest compliment I can pay Stacey is that during my time working for her I learned constantly -- about marketing, about business, about human interactions, about leadership and about integrity.

An inspirational leader, she is the type of manager who leaves raving fans within any company she touches.

It’s very rare that I get to work with someone that has advertising/marketing expertise coupled with data analytics comprehension and is able to marry the two disciplines together.

Regardless of the size of the enterprise, the nature of the target consumer, the scale of available marketing resources or the complexity of the growth strategy, Stacey has always found a way to help the business take a big step forward. From what I’ve experienced, her equation is simple: Strategic vision + An uncanny ability to get things done = Impact. Stacey is an exceptional leader… a big picture seer, creative brand story teller, customer experience maven, digital marketing master and fearless choreographer of the delicate dance between strategy, marketing, sales and technology. Management teams love working with her because she is pragmatic and always delivers. Marketing teams love working for her because she leads with vision, spirit, humor and compassion.
