That's pronounced “Rav-es-tin,'' the J is silent (at least in the US). You know you were wondering. A dynamic, results-oriented professional working at the intersection of strategic planning, sales and relationship management, and prospect engagement to drive business development and revenue growth. With 15+ years of achievement in strategic marketing across a suite of categories and brands. During my time I have had the privilege of working in many different disciplines of marketing and advertising, spanning from brand to commerce. I thrive on opportunity identification and uncovering tangible strategies for cross-discipline business development. I bring an uncommon blend of creativity and exceptional communication talents along with a proven ability to overcome roadblocks, develop innovative strategies and build a competitive advantage. I take great pride in being a team leader and mentor, developing and motivating team members, authoring thought leadership and taking responsibility for focusing on expanding revenue sources. I also relish challenging stereotypes and dichotomies. I've focused much of my experience on diverse consumer market experience including Hispanic, Black, Asian, LGBT, and unique polycultural segments. I am a perpetual student, wanderlust traveler, and cultural addict who has never met a stranger. My friends describe me as a curious chameleon both personally and professionally. I'm married to a Dutchman who shares my love of soccer and healthy debate. My greatest purpose and joy is showing my sons the best of the world around them.
