I have over twenty-three years experience working in Information Technology and Marketing. Previous to co-founding The Blackwell Group LLC, I held various management roles at Pitney Bowes, Inc. In those roles, I was responsible for database marketing, business intelligence, marketing analytics and business strategy,

Prior to Pitney Bowes, I held leadership positions at GE Capital, XL Capital and Citibank, N.A. and consulted for companies such as The Hartford Life Insurance Company, The Bank of New York, JPMorgan and CIBC, among others.

One of my greatest strengths is the ability to "bridge the gap" between business and technology.

I hold an MBA from the University of Connecticut in both Marketing and International Business, as well as a BA in Computer Information Science from Iona College.
