Focused on Driving Revenues

“Worked with Alan at CMP Media for about 5 years. At CMP Alan had a wonderful ability to collaborate with others, succeed through a multitude of company and market changes (which there were many), and always stay focused on driving revenues. Was a key figure in the devlopement and managment of the sales structure. Also was keen to the financial impacts of sales decisions. Alan was also a key figure in the development and implementation of sales and contact tracking systems across the division. Would recommend Alan in a heartbeat!”

Open and Honest Collaborator

“Having done start-ups with Alan on two occasions I can honestly say he is one of the most creative yet strategic publishing executives I have known. With all the changes in the publishing industry, he is the kind of executive you want on your team as he “gets it.” He understands how to make the brave new world of media pay. And he is a leader, not simply a manager. Someone who is inspiring to all who know him. I’ve known and worked for Alan on and off for 15 years and found him to be an open and honest collaborator, effective sales manager and creative publication executive. We did a lot of great work for clients together. He’s a good motivational guy and gives you the tools you need to do your job.”
