I have two decades of successful experience in sales, account development, client retention and marketing.
I began my sales and marketing career with Thomas Publishing representing the Regional Directories in 1996. During my time with Thomas I was awarded Platinum Club status as a top 10 new business producer and client retention expert. I also earned the President’s Award four times, the Meteor Award as well as being recognized as the company’s Rookie of the Year.
In 2009 I joined Site-Seeker, Inc as Sales Manager and was charged with developing a presence in the emerging New England market. In 2010 I was promoted to Vice President of Sales and Marketing. Under my direction, the New England territory became one of Site-Seeker’s strongest, and most promising markets. During my time with Site-Seeker I helped to rebrand the company and launched a successful weekly webinar series called Jolt & Bolt.
In 2013 I rejoined the ThomasNet team to help lead the National Sales Initiative for their new inbound marketing agency offering, Results Powered Marketing. During my 18 months with RPM I helped develop the sales process and team training, worked with the reps in the field to present and close RPM deals, hosted monthly webinars on inbound marketing for manufacturing as well as developing my own book of business.

I continue to be a successful member of the ThomasNet team bringing my extensive experience in digital marketing for the Industrial, Manufacturing and B2B arena to the Western Pennsylvania market.
In addition to to my proven track record in sales I also have extensive experience in speaking and presenting. My content focuses on the business uses of the web, including social media. I have had the privilege speaking to: CONNSTEP Conference, the National NIST/MEP Conference, Eastec, Connecticut Business Expo, e-technology Summit, WISE Symposium, BizBuzz Social Media Conferences (event emcee) and Patterson Dental Customer Appreciation Event. I have also presented a series of seminars and webinars throughout Connecticut for members of CONNSTEP.
Kathy is a no-nonsense, shoot from the hip, high-energy marketing professional – this is evident from the moment you meet her. She gets it – Kathy knows what it takes to help companies improve their website performance while integrating traditional marketing programs with internet and social media platforms – always delivering the ROI for her client companies. Kathy constantly keeps me on my game and is not only a valued business partner but was a mentor for the betterment of CONNSTEP and the client base. I recommend Kathy without reservation! ~ Rebecca Mead, Rebecca Mead Communications
