I'm a big fan of Tony's. He's a talented marketing executive, universally likable and really committed to getting success for his clients and initiatives. While he was at GumGum, and I was an advisor, he took some time to teach me his approach to brand development and let me in on the plans he created to elevate the companies profile in the ad biz. I was really impressed at the time and later really thrilled to see how well it worked!
Tony's sales-driven approach to marketing and communications were instrumental in building awareness of GumGum throughout the digital advertising industry. His experience, contacts, work ethic and understanding of the programs and tactics required to support our sales initiatives helped put GumGum on the radar of our prospective clients and directly contributed to our rapid sales growth.
I had the pleasure to work with Tony at ValueClick. I have had the chance to work with many marketing folks and to find someone like Tony who can think strategically and execute tactically is rare indeed. I recommend Tony to any company looking for either long term strategic marketing or completion of specific marketing projects.
I worked with Tony for many years at ValueClick. He is incredibly passionate about marketing, advertising, branding, etc. He's the kind of person who throws himself completely into the mission at hand. He's also extremely well-connected in the industry, having been part of it for so many years. Finally, and importantly, Tony is a genuinely nice person to work with - open, collaborative, and personable.
I have had the privilege of collaborating with Tony on several projects including his brainchild: www.ThePerformanceInterviews.com. An amazing human being, Tony's capacity to work at high levels is persistent and stunning in execution. He is an idea man, and a great manager of others whose reputation proceeds him. A veteran and co-founder of an entire industry we know now as internet marketing, Tony is worth his weight in gold times the power of ten. His vision for new ways to navigate marketing, identify potential opportunity, apply foresight, offer leadership and rally collaborators makes Tony a force to be reckoned with.
Tony came into my life and made a profound and positive impact very quickly. What I love about Tony is that he's a giver, he's super smart, and he knows how to make people feel good. I 'swipe and adapt' from him every chance I get. Thanks Tony for being a pro and keeping it fun!
Tony and I have been work[ed] together for almost 10 years. During that time Tony has always been one of the sharpest and well-networked marketing professionals I've known. He is an A+ professional.
Tony is one of the most creative and attentive professionals in advertising media you will ever encounter. If you have a chance to work with him, you'll discover he's a great guy too! Highly recommended.
Tony is the real deal. When we brought him [onboard] we desperately needed someone who could establish our marketing positioning and supply us with a basis for our relevance in the paid search industry. Tony meshed with the executive team immediately, single-handedly took on all marketing responsibilities (before hiring a team) and did everything we needed him to do. Tony has a spirit about him. He spins at a high RPM and consistently maintains a positive attitude. He is one of those guys who is often in the exact right place at the exact right time making the perfect introduction. I would welcome the opportunity to work with him again.
Tony is one our digital media & advertising rockstars who paved the way for the industry we see today!! Always ahead of the curve and bubble.
