Chief Executive Officer
20x Marketing Automation Certified Consultant
Nick started his professional career in Rockledge, Florida as a freelance Web Developer and Graphics Designer in 1996 at the age of 14. A year later, he started his first company, a Gaming & e-Magazine website, which was acquired in 2001 shortly after turning 19 years-old--during this time, he taught himself 7x programming languages. His next business venture was a Search Engine Optimization (SEO) company that was sold at auction in 2003 prior to it's public launch date. Over the years, Nick has worked for several large corporations as a Web Developer, Google-certified AdWords Search Engine Marketing (SEM) Professional, Search Engine Optimizer (SEO), Affiliate Marketer, Database Administrator (DBA) and Internet Marketing Director.
In 2008, Nick flew to Cambridge, Massachusetts for hands-on training from Eloqua Corporation, the pioneer in the newly emerging Marketing Automation industry. He became among the first and very few Eloqua-Certified Demand Generation Professionals courtesy of Eloqua's Professional Certification Program. By 2010, Nick founded the marketing automation consultancy, LEAD2CRM to provide best in class marketing strategy consulting and program development services within Marketing Automation platforms. Since then, some of the largest S&P 500, Fortune 1000 corporations and even small-to-medium businesses (SMB) have called LEAD2CRM's client list "home." LEAD2CRM's work greatly contributed to an Eloqua Markies Award trophy win for a client at the Eloqua Experience 2012 conference.
Since the early days of marketing automation and LEAD2CRM, Nick now has a total of 20x Marketing Automation Certifications across 6 tools making him the most decorated marketing automation consultant in the industry and incredibly versatile in automation practices.
