The world of social media is filled with wannabes and self-proclaimed experts with little actual client and business experience. Nathaniel stands out in that world. Nathaniel's understanding of the social space seems to be the result of his extensive client experience and his passion for technology and people. But what makes him truly stand out is his ability to continuously re-define the limits of what can be done in this field while never losing sight of the consumers and the business needs of his clients. And the fact that he’s a genuinely nice guy and fun to work with doesn’t hurt either.
Nathaniel was a co-chair of the social media council at the ARF. His native understanding about the social media space and his ability to communicate at ARF council meetings of 50-100 to those more comfortable with traditional media was quite impressive.
Nathaniel is an entrepreneur-technologist, meaning he always looks for ways technology can spark a business or improve it. Whether putting together an enterprise-class system architecture or a small pilot of cutting edge technology, Nathaniel brings the same rigor, thoughtfulness and leadership to the mix. As both a doer and a manager, Nathaniel's deep experience and work style encourages team collaboration for the most comprehensive and cohesive vision, and the greatest benefit.
Nathaniel is unique technical and business thinker, who really understands the digital marketing space. His deep knowledge around marketing, social and emerging technologies and a solid background in key web software solutions such as commerce and content management make him stand out. This mix of strong technical expertise combined with strong strategic and business insights and creative thinking enables him to come up with realizable solutions that have real business impact.
