BirdEye, Inc

Joined BirdEye, Inc. as the third member of the newly formed marketing team to lay the foundation for Demand Generation and grow a scalable, organic, non-paid lead engine that would prepare us for Series C funding.

Established Closed Loop Routing and Marketing Attribution

Created one intense visio, and spent hours manually routing leads until my cries of manual effort were heard! I presented a closed loop marketing and campaign attribution model to Director and VP levels that resulted in implementing routing improvements and campaign object utilization that captured over 1000 misrouted leads and 105 unattributed opportunities per month, on average (not to mention the 2 hours per day of manual routing saved).

Established and Grew Email as a Lead Source

Developed and executed on BirdEye’s first nurture email and webinar plan that generated over 400 opportunities, $1.5M in pipeline and $154K in closed won deals.  With the established infrastructure in place, email as a lead source, grew to account for 18% of inbound leads while subsequently reducing the percent of paid leads from 62% to 35% in just 6 months.

ACTIVE Network

Arrived at ACTIVE in early 2015 under the ownership of Vista Equity Partners where I supported implementing and transforming processes to support quadrupling growth (highlights included below). After being acquired by Global Payments (NYSE: GPN) in late 2017, participated in deep dive discussions to drive gross margins of 40%.

Implemented Account-Based Marketing

Implemented ACTIVE’s first ever Account-Based Marketing program for deals ranging from $100K-$300K+.  Achievements include directing a cross-functional team of 10 people to scrub and enrich over 250 Accounts in Salesforce on a compressed timeline from 3 quarters to 3 weeks.  Presented analysis and status updates to executive leadership on a weekly basis, highlighting engagement rates of 80% and conversion rates of over 20%.

Transformed Declining Markets

Took ownership of Team Sports marketing programs and aggressively executed and optimized demand generation efforts, by the end of 2016 the market experienced lead increases of 2000% for webinars, 733% for emails leads and 23% for Content Downloads.

Subsequently was promoted to Global Marketing Manager for the Sports and Endurance Market in early 2018, overseeing Product Marketing, Demand Generation and Account-Based Marketing across 5 verticals, 8 products and supported 10 sales teams with a team of 3 people to exceed quarterly marketing owned bookings by 128%.

Demand Generation Excellence

As part of my role in the Youth & Education market I planned and executed a go-to-market strategy that supported a new name sales team of 50 individuals by generating 10,992 marketing qualified leads (a 4% increase year-over-year) that drove 74% of the $6M in new business.

Go-to-Market Support

In my most recent year and a half at ACTIVE, I influenced the product roadmap and developed go-to-market plans for 3 Tier 1 launches and 9 Tier 2 launches. Results are highlighted in my recent resume.

Sales Funnel Acceleration

Accelerated the sales funnel by enabling sales through the creation/refinement of over 86 sales enablement pieces including competitive tools, asset development and sales communication. Efforts resulted in a 12% increase in opportunity/won rate from 25% to 28%.

Optimized and managed existing inbound funnels to achieve a positive ROMI resulting in a pipeline of nearly $900K in less than 2 months and more than tripled inbound leads year over year from 144 to 447.
