ATLANTA, GA – January 4, 2017 – Lauded technology marketing executive Janet Roberts is the latest addition to Chief Outsiders -- one of the nation’s fastest growing management consulting firms. Roberts’ addition to Chief Outsiders’ Southeast team of fractional Chief Marketing Officers caps a year of explosive growth for Chief Outsiders, which has seen unprecedented demand for its Executives-as-a-Service model among the mid-market businesses that benefit from its services.

Roberts – known for supporting corporate transformation during periods of rapid growth, either organically or through mergers and acquisitions – is available for immediate deployment to help businesses seeking renewed marketing strategies or senior-level insights to help revitalize their brand or reposition products and services.

“Janet is the kind of Chief Outsider that mid-market businesses can benefit from starting on Day One – able to gain immediate insights, and then implement processes to help companies better understand how to focus on, take advantage of – and then own – their marketplace,” said Tom McCrary, Managing Partner of Chief Outsiders’ Southeast team. “She is a brand builder who knows how to transform perceptions, optimize positioning and propel innovative content strategies through diverse channels.”

Roberts previously served as Chief Marketing Officer of Syniverse, where she built the marketing organization, rebranded the company and helped achieve myriad accomplishments, including 3X-plus revenue growth and integration of five acquisitions during her tenure. Roberts achieved similar results as Corporate Vice President of Global Marketing and Communications for Telcordia Technologies (now Ericsson), which was acquired by private equity after experiencing explosive sales growth of its wireless business, and European and Latin American business. At Telcordia, Roberts rebranded and repositioned the company’s complex product portfolio.

The Atlanta-based Roberts earned her MBA in marketing from the University of Alabama Manderson Graduate School of Business, where she was named a Graduate Council Fellow. She also matriculated magna cum laude with a B.A. from the University of Alabama, where she was elected to Phi Beta Kappa.
