Denise draws on earlier successes as an entrepreneur and established business professional. Her search practice focuses on business development, spanning broadly to include roles in sales, marketing, advertising, conceptual development, go-to-market strategy, market roll out and expansion, consumer promotion, and interactive marketing. She quickly became sought after for her expert reputation in retail, service, and casual dining and technology verticals. She has worked on senior assignments across continents, industries and within organizations that range from Fortune 500 companies to major e-Commerce firms and Internet start-ups. As such, she has a broad view of sales and marketing talent as well as of how different profiles tend to adapt within different environments. Before joining Talent House Recruiters, Denise served as CEO and Founder of TownSpree and published two leading regional, beauty and medi-spa magazines. Earlier she was a product innovator with Nintendo and CitySpree and held senior record-breaking sales and promotions roles within Rewards Network, the industry leader for a providing dining, hotel, airline rewards and credit card loyalty programs.

Her goal across all recruiting services is to help you make better people decisions for critical roles, systematically increase your leaders’ readiness to take on bigger challenges, build a sustainable talent pipeline, and ensure that your conscious leadership teams have the diverse strengths required to create a profound competitive advantage.
Acutely intuitive, Denise is an influential trend-spotter, and notices that “marketing function” is experiencing a revolution. Digital media has vastly increased the number of consumer touch points, and Social Commerce is about to explode. Traditional “Big Data” makes it possible to know and predict consumer behaviors and preferences with remarkably nuanced precision, and many of the best growth opportunities are in dynamic, but unfamiliar emerging markets. The end results of marketing remain the same: Build your brand. Create consumer awareness. Earn trial, repeat purchase, preference, and advocacy. The revolutionary changes in the means of marketing make recruiting for Sales, Marketing and e-Commerce roles exponentially more complex. Denise is uniquely qualified and poised to lead the recruiting industry through this paradigm shift in Marketing.
