Seasoned sales and marketing guy focused on cloud-based marketing technologies and solutions. First international hire for ExactTarget and again at Sailthru (current role). Love start-ups and sharing what I know. Helping MavenSocial and others.
I met Stefan for the first time at a Lead Generation Seminar, which I was hosting. He attended the seminar with the intent to learn about MSCRM and to see if there were any partnership opportunities between our firms.
From the nature of the questions and his involvement in the round table Q&A at the end, I could tell that he was trying to help me stimulate some meaningful conversation with all the attendees.
Since that first meeting, our companies worked towards a partnership which lead to several deals and one of the best personal business relationships I have ever had with someone in the industry.
He is a very honest and trustworthy advocate of marketing solutions and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.
Stefan has a deep understanding of the email marketing landscape and is committed to sharing his passion for the medium's potential. He will always go the extra mile to find a solution that works for a client's particular situation, and he is a good sounding board for anyone looking for advice about email marketing.
During the implementation of our new marketing automation technology, Stefan was instrumental in helping Cryptologic improve their email delivery capabilities. He brings a deep understanding of best practices in eMarketing and was a valued consultant both during and after our implementation was complete. He continues to be a hard working and trusted individual whom we depend on for consulting in the eMarketing space to this very day.
I think Stefan epitomizes what a sales/business development person should be. He's a loyal, hard working professional with a keen understanding of knowing how to close large, complex deals that require a more consultative approach. He has an extremely positive "can-do" attitude, which serves as a morale booster for any team he's on. Stefan has extensive knowledge within the digital industry (with a focus on email), and is extremely well-networked. He is very well-liked - by both his colleagues and his customers. Stefan is an asset to any company.
Stefan helped me in a pinch when I needed to get some e-marketing out fast. He made a difficult situation easy and solved my problems quickly. Stefan went above and beyond to make sure I met deadline and provided excellent customer service and follow-up.
It has been a real pleasure working with Stefan. He sets clear expectations and is persistent with this follow through and level of detail. When working with prospects and customers, he quickly determines the appropriate solution and resources to deliver the best results.
I have known Stefan for some time, and finally had the pleasure of including him in the program for one of my conferences (www.internetmarketingconference.com) in Vancouver in September. Stefan managed to fill the position of going up against a big name from Google very well. It's also very easy to discuss business with Stefan since he's both friendly and really knows the field of e-mail marketing.
Stefan knows email marketing. While at Publicis I worked with him on numerous campaigns over a 2-year period with excellent results. Years later I hired him again when he moved on to ET. He has been servicing our account effectively for 2 years. If you need anything to do with email marketing you can't go wrong with Stefan.
I knew of Stefan before I met him. His profile preceded him. When I finally did meet him, he was with a previous company, but I thought here's a guy who knows what he's talking about. Then when we needed bullet-proof email services for our clients, I knew who to call. Yes, we looked at others, but Stefan and his team really delivered and won the work. Since then, any questions or service issues have been answered promptly and professionally. Couldn't ask for more. Other than Stefan needs to get away from his work a bit so we can go cycling!
Stefan's knowledge and strategic thinking have been an asset to my company and my clients. He is a professional and a pleasure to work with.
While I haven't worked with him on a supplier basis, only as an industry peer, I can honestly say that Stefan is very passionate, knowledgeable, and one of the hardest-working people in I know in the industry. He is extremely focused on driving success for his clients and is a tremendous resource for anyone looking to for information or expertise on the subject of online direct marketing.
