As an award-winning fiction writer who also has a Harvard MBA, I see organizations differently. From strategic business plans to tactical communication campaigns and everything in between, ATG Communication distills complexity into coherence.
Before starting ATG, I was a senior vice president of HMV Records, a $1.5 billion division of EMI Music Group. I oversaw business development, marketing, and real estate and was on the board of the Canadian and US operations. I had a hand in strategic planning, advertising, marketing, store design, real estate, and construction.
I’m also co-author of the best selling business book, The World’s Largest Market, released by the American Management Association. In the fall of 2020, I released my first full-length documentary with Vision Films, GATSBY IN CONNECTICUT, featuring Sam Waterston. My novel, My Year as a Clown won the silver medal for popular fiction from the Independent Publishers Book Awards. As an Associates Fellow at Harvard Business School, I published several cases and articles on international business and government/business relations. I’ve worked with a variety of for-profit and not-for-profit organizations, big and small.
