Spring Marketing Group is a collective of seasoned marketing professionals who specialize in corporate brand marketing for rising and established B2B companies in technology, IT, and professional services. For 20 years, we’ve worked at or with companies across all lifecycle stages – from seed, startup, growth, expansion, and exit – building strong reputations with marketing that delivers measurable results and fuels growth.

We use a collaborative and nimble approach for client engagements. Our team is often either the company’s first dedicated marketing resource or is used as the outsourced “arms and legs” for an existing marketing team. Our clients depend on us for marketing programs that are both proven and efficient. In the end, we help clients build awareness, generate sales and recruiting leads, and connect with their customers.

20+ years of experience in business-to-business marketing communications and product marketing for emerging and large businesses. Skilled at implementing integrated marketing programs to influence business growth through increased market awareness, generation of sales leads, customer marketing, and recruitment marketing.

Career highlight: When one of a client’s employees told me how excited he was about the new website we just launched for the company – affirming that while beautiful websites are essential for awareness and lead generation, they’re also a source of great pride for employees.

A communications and public relations specialist with more than 20 years of public relations expertise in agency, corporate, and freelance settings, with an emphasis on business-to-business clients.

Career highlight: When my client was listed on the Inc. 5000 and was contacted by a fellow Inc. 5000 listee. After several discussions, my client acquired the other company. This match among two Inc. fast-growers was ultimately acquired by one of the world’s largest technology companies – proving how awards-driven PR can deliver tangible value in unexpected ways.
