Hi, I'm Steve. As Director of Client Strategy & Growth at Cantina, I partner with client organizations to help them create amazing experiences that engage consumers, improve customer relationships, and ultimately increase their revenue. I believe that providing our clients outstanding customer service is the key to building meaningful and valuable partnerships that last.
At Cantina, I'm primarily focused on the Transportation, Travel & Tourism, and Energy industries. My career has spanned the digital and technology space since 1995. I've spent time in Boston, San Francisco and Detroit leading strategic, digital, and creative thinking for brands like adidas, LEGO, General Motors, P&G, Project(RED), HUMMER, British Airways, Puma, Bose, Disney, and many others.
Before Cantina, I was VP-Client Partner at Isobar where I led a multi-faceted team of designers, UX professionals and developers who delivered large digital experience builds, marketing programs and digital transformation initiatives - many of which were award-winning. I’ve also held leadership positions at several Boston-based marketing agencies including Fuseideas, Digitas, and Modernista!.
As a service-oriented professional who is typically the conduit between client and agency, I have a strong POV on how brands can leverage technology to create amazing experiences and build better relationships with their customer
