During my eight year tenure at News Corp / Dow Jones / CBS MarketWatch, I successfully developed and retained up to $6.3 million in annual revenue from top-tier accounts in the financial, media and corporate sectors via licensing content, data and technology to large public-facing media websites as well as corporate intranets and extranets. Triumph in all territories required: securing enterprise-wide content and SaaS expansion deals that drove revenue; generating new product ideas for upsell opportunities; aggregating data from untapped sources; writing in-depth, high-level proposals that won RFP opportunities; strategic pricing negotiations that resulted in optimal margins; overall market, product and sales consulting expertise and execution. Success tactics included high-level (1MM+) contract negotiations; overseeing cross-functional teams through all phases of application design, development and deployment to secure on-time deliverables; completing SWOT analyses and detailed website audits to demonstrate consulting expertise and enrich client engagements; and leading client teams including legal, account management, sales engineers, product development, project management, data integrity and tech support which resulted in customer satisfaction and revenue growth.
