Stephanie D’Amico’s mantra, like many of you, is "begin with the end in mind." She started her career not knowing exactly what she wanted to do but, knowing that whatever she did, she wanted to be "successful." Being successful, as a young adult, meant being a leader in her company, in her industry and enjoying her work. Stephanie is pleased to say, “I hit the jackpot”. For the past 20+ years, she has successfully focused on helping her clients achieve their marketing goals by creating, executing and measuring campaigns. She has grown up with proformas and ROI calculations. She continues to be amazed at the impact of utilizing data to drive marketing. Stephanie’s career started in credit card marketing and she continues to spend most of her time working in the financial sector, helping small consumer finance companies to large national banks achieve their marketing goals.
