It would take a pretty sweet opportunity for me to leave what was a pretty good situation at Microsoft. Despite the fact that I was unhappy with my role, with some patience, I may have been able to eventually landed elsewhere in the company. But when an opportunity like the one at Strategies 360 presented itself, I had to jump all over it. Needless to say I’m thrilled to be joining Strategies 360 as their new VP of Marketing & Social Media. In addition to being everything and more in a role for me, it’s a fantastic organization doing very exciting work. I felt something special within a few minutes of my first interview, and that’s only been reaffirmed since then. I will be tasked with building the social media offering and team at Strategies 360 and have officially started this week. S360 is a strategic communications firm offering a full-team approach to marketing, government relations, business strategy, creative services and public relations. I really look forward to working with clients outside the normal b2b and b2c environments I have traditionally worked with, and nothing is more exciting to me then the opportunity to build something from the ground up. I will continue to use my personal blog to share my experiences in these new exciting times as much as time permits.
