Find out who, what, and why

Hello there! Hopefully you’re reading this because you share my passion for the agency business. People can spend thirty years learning about it, and I figured this blog is one way to enjoy the journey. It also lets us share/gain expertise, and meet some folks along the way.

I run Thunderclap Consulting Group, a boutique that helps professional service firms find senior level talent and win new business. Yours truly brings more than 20 years of client and agency brand-building experience to the pursuit. Before starting Thunderclap, I worked at a variety of agencies, including FCB, Ogilvy, WestWayne (now 22squared), and Noble; both in new business and account management.

With time, this blog will demonstrate some of the learnings from hundreds of pitches that span the continuum of client size, targets, and marketing communication disciplines. I have also worked in other professional service industries, having recently helped one global consulting firm win more than $40 million in revenue in one pitch.

Yours truly has also been asked by some of the biggest and best known agencies to quietly find them the very best talent available, no matter what the discipline.

If you have any questions or simply want to discuss any new business or recruiting challenge, call or email me. It costs nothing to chat. And if you feel I can help, we can discuss next steps. I’m happy to be of service.
