What makes this industry a good fit for you? The ad sales portion of our industry is a good blend between sales and marketing. This is a good fit for me because it’s part art – helping clients with creative marketing plans—and part science—understanding the numbers side of sales. And no day is like the last, which keeps it interesting.
How has your definition of success changed over the course of your career? Early in my career, I focused on my own growth and gained personal and professional satisfaction from moving up the corporate ladder. At this stage in my career, I get much more satisfaction helping others grow their careers and improve their leadership competencies. I find this stage much more fulfilling.
