Godlewski helps SMB manufacturing companies achieve market leadership by deploying omni-channel marketing and sales strategies
ST. LOUIS, MO – February 4, 2021– It takes a keen sense of the challenges facing today’s SMB and mid-market companies in order to help them grow in today’s marketplace. In joining Chief Outsiders, the nation’s leading “Executives-as-a-Service” firm, experienced marketing executive Rob Godlewski brings the insights necessary to help companies achieve their market-driven growth objectives.
At Chief Outsiders, Godlewski will work alongside more than 70 part-time CMOs in helping to align SMB and mid-market companies with contemporary go-to-market strategies on a per-need basis. Godlewski specializes in helping manufacturing company CEOs grow revenues, build omni-channel sales strategies, streamline operations, and drive innovation to achieve market leadership.
Godlewski has a particular understanding of the challenges – and benchmarks – inherent in the manufacturing industry. As an example, in one senior leadership position, he grew eCommerce sales from 2 to 35 percent of total sales through a combination of marketing strategies – a feat that earned him two Best-in-Class marketing awards from Amazon.com.
In another engagement, Godlewski helped a manufacturer improve its on-time shipping performance from 72 to 98 percent through a combination of SKU rationalization and warehouse consolidation.
