"Every facet of business development and marketing is fascinating to me, I love looking at the big picture and reducing it to the reproducible benchmarkable tasks that can be monitored to create success which allows a company to reach its targets," states Derrick, "I enjoy being a part a business reaching its goals, whether its bringing a new product or service to market, or implementing the perfect mix of marketing and advertising that adds needed revenue. But at the end of the day, I get my satisfaction from the relationships, they matter the most because they are the cornerstone of every great sustainable business. Behind every great company is a great person leading great people, which is a timeless value every customer appreciates."
His focus at Ceptara is helping clients unify their marketing, advertising and sales strategies, by creating systems which allow companies to properly manage these functions.
