Vice President & Head of Client Strategy and Growth
Hi, I'm Sam. As the Vice President & Head of Client Strategy and Growth at Cantina, my job is to create strategic alliances with Cantina’s clients and partners. For over 18 years, I’ve worked with software and technology companies as a revenue generator, account manager, and digital strategist. My passion is helping businesses grow through innovation; something Cantina does quite often. My career has allowed me to cross paths with Fortune 500 companies and emerging startups. A few examples include Aetna, Partners HealthCare, IDG, Elsevier, Pearson, The New England Patriots, LEGO, Cannondale, ABInBev, Oppenheimer Funds, SyncThink, and Toast.
I’m also actively involved in the tech and marketing communities as a speaker at events like Macworld | iWorld, CMJ Marathon and Canadian Music Week’s Digital Media Summit. I write about trends in emerging tech for the health and IoT industry through Cantina’s blog.
