About Joe

Welcome to my personal blog.  I enjoy good coffee and conversation.  I hope you will stop by and share your favorite beverage while we chat.15445143_s

I’m President of Strategic Marketing Solutions, a full-service marketing and consulting firm specializing in web-based integrated relationship marketing.

During the six years prior to starting my business, I served as Vice President of Strategic Services at Brann Worldwide, in Richmond, Virginia. For the previous seven years, I served as Marketing Services Director and Consultant for Epsilon Data Management, in Massachusetts. I earned a graduate degree in Marketing from Northeastern University and an undergraduate degree in Business.

Throughout my 30 years in marketing, I’ve worked heavily in the pharmaceutical, healthcare and financial services industries. I thrive on the ever-changing nature of marketing in the digital age, embrace interactive opportunities, and aim to help businesses optimize customer experience and value, orchestrating accomplished marketing programs in this socially connected age.

I’m a monthly contributor to Windmill Networking, Social Media Today and Business 2 Community, and I enjoy hosting marketing chats with other thought leaders, specifically #usguyschat and #smchat.
