The first time I worked with Michele, I watched in awe as she took an SAP company from fledgling to a fast growth business with 200% growth in just one year. She's an expert in B2B marketing that listens and probes before setting a strategy and moving into high gear to execute on that strategy. It was a pleasure to watch her work her magic. Now, as my fractional CMO, she has been instrumental in the launch of my new business and most importantly her work has produced a 10% conversion rate on a new product launch. I attribute this success to her 20 years of technology and product experience coupled with her business acumen. Michele has been a lifesaver and I highly recommend her.

Team Leader @ IBM

Michele is one of the best marketing leaders I have ever worked with. She's smart, a tireless worker, is willing/able to roll up her sleeves and do the dirty work, but also is a strategic and high level thinker. She taught me many things and I enjoyed collaborating with her.

Michele was integral to establishing our marketing function at Prefect. She brought clear, actionable advice and structure helping us craft a successful marketing strategy for our unique audience of developers. From strategy to positioning and persona work to advertising, PR, events, hiring, and more, Michele leveraged her experience to make a real impact during a time of hypergrowth when we needed it the most.
