Derek is passionate, enthusiastic, driven, responsive and creative. The CIAA hired Derek and his team to move us to the next level of branding and exposure to support the vision of the conference. Derek’s support and ability to identify new ways to brand and provide exposure was instrumental to enhancing our visibility and engagement across multi-marketing platforms - both traditional and non-traditional - and executing several initiatives key to the conference’s priorities. Derek’s ability to identify creative, non-traditional opportunities for the Commissioner from print, radio and social media that provided greater exposure to the conference. Derek is loyal and was committed to the mission of our organization.
It is rare that you come across a talent like Derek. I've had the pleasure of working with him over the past 3 years, collaborating on media strategies for the CIAA. His dedication to his clients along with his ability to develop and flawlessly execute creative marketing solutions, puts him in a class by himself. I have truly enjoyed working and learning from him. He certainly makes you level up! If you have not had the opportunity to work with Derek yet, what are you waiting for?
