After 20 years of working on top brands in marketing innovation, I am now consulting as a freelance brand strategist in Los Angeles. An entrepreneur at heart, my marketing background is comprised of brand management, consumer insights, and new product innovation in consumer products. I specifically chose to work for traditional, large consumer packaged goods companies to gain expertise as a classically trained marketer. In recent years, I have sought positions with smaller and nimble entrepreneurial companies to broaden my skills and perspective. I’ve spent my career building the nuances of brands, launching dynamic new products, and developing innovation processes. Some of the major consumer brands I have worked on include Pledge, Off!, King’s Hawaiian, La Brea Bakery, Otis Spunkmeyer, Thomas’, Boboli, Entenmann’s and various California and Oregon wine brands. I hold a Masters in Business Administration from DePaul University’s Kellstadt School of Business and a Bachelor of Science degree from Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business. As a freelance brand strategist in Los Angeles, I can help you take your marketing to the next level and deliver a much greater value. In fact, our entire team at Dean Creative can maximize your budget and modernize your brand.
