B2B Marketing Executive / Creative Thinker / Digital Savvy / Bestselling Writer & Editor

I help B2B companies grow via strategic marketing communications. Having worked in agency, non-profit and corporate settings, my background is well balanced and includes extensive client, project and department management experience.

A business chemistry test labels me an “integrator-pioneer,” or someone who is optimistic, collaborative, strategic and spontaneously generous. I bring energy and creativity, digital savvy, and a passion for innovation. I understand the importance of mining data and dissecting analytics to enhance marketing campaigns.

As an executive and strategic leader, I am driven to inspire teams that conceptualize and implement winning strategies. According to Jonah Bloom, editor of Advertising Age magazine from 2002 to 2010, “Todd is a gentleman, an excellent marketing executive and that rare bird—an ideas guy who executes too … Todd has a strong altruistic streak, as well as plenty of business savvy. Todd gets the marketing fundamentals, but he’s also been a player in the evolving social media world that affects so many businesses today.”

On the side, I write and edit history books. My first book, Reporting the Revolutionary War, was an Amazon bestseller and earned multiple book-of-the-year honors, including being named one of the Best Books of 2012 by Barnes & Noble. As founder and editor-in-chief of the Journal of the American Revolution, I have overseen the publication of more than 1,000 articles as well as 10 books about the Revolutionary War.
