As the VP of Business Development for Voyage Financial Group based in Sacramento, CA. My primary function is to recruit and develop outside branches for the organization. It allows me to combine my consulting skills with my marketing know-how as a big part of developing branches is honing their marketing strategy.
As the Manager of Marketing and Special Projects for the past year and a half, I grew quite a bit in my creative skills and in the use of Adobe Creative Suite, Dreamweaver, HTML and even in Flash. The project management experience was also fantastic. I also learned quite a bit from observation about what not to do as a leader and businessman.
I was with DHL Express (and Airborne Express) for 8 years after graduating from college. I steadily worked my way from Inside Sales to District Sales Manager. Along with strong growth and sales along the way, I had some unique opportunities to help in product development and marketing. Further, I was involved with a team that developed, implemented and rolled out SFA/CRM systems. Working on these side projects helped me find that I am best at developing products and ideas and driving through implementation.
I look forward to continuing my growth on this path as I believe that it is best to always continue the development of not only your primary and known talents, but other areas of expertise. As a manager I have learned that it is not only your job to guide and lead your team to success, but also to learn from their strengths, knowledge and experiences.
