- Profession: Chief Blogger
- Expertise: Head of Social Media for Emerson Process Management
- Years Of Experience: 20+
I am the Chief Blogger, Surface Dweller, and Head of Social Media for Emerson Process Management. The surface dweller metaphor comes from an article I wrote, Surface key to social network success. It highlights the importance of organizations having people out at the surface of their organizations to better listen and respond to the needs of their customers and prospective customers. It was an absolute thrill and honor to be named BtoB magazine’s Best Corporate Blog for 2010.
My 20+ year career at Emerson spans sales support, product application specialist, alliance manager, product manager for the DeltaV development, marketing communications manager, and social media leader.
I received a BSEE from the University of Texas at Austin and an MBA from the University of New Orleans. My career began as a Systems Engineer with Conoco North American Production in New Orleans in the mid 1980s before coming to Emerson in the late 1980s. You can see my complete profile in LinkedIn.
