Executive Marketing Expertise Added in Information Technology, Financial and Consumer Services

HOUSTON, TX:  September 14, 2010 – Chief Outsiders announced that to meet its growing demand for part time Chief Marketing Officers the company has added Clay Spitz and Sharon Fortmeyer-Selan to its portfolio of experience marketing executives available to growing companies on a fractional basis. 

Spitz brings a unique perspective and experience portfolio as both a former business owner and marketing executive. Working for Fortune 1000 public and privately held companies including Terminix International, Telecheck and Cable Lock, Spitz became expert at driving consumer and business growth initiatives through demand generation, loyalty and retention programs. 

Fortmeyer-Selan, a skilled strategist and pragmatic marketer, has honed a track record of success throughout 30 years of new market development, marketing and product management in information technology, communications, financial, energy and commodities sectors. An executive with experience in technology startups and Fortune 500 companies including AT&T and NCR, Sharon most recently was SVP Marketing at SunGard.

"In its first year of operation the Chief Outsiders’ team has grown to include offices in Houston, Austin and Atlanta providing expertise and guidance to clients across a broad range of growth stages, business models, and industries,” said Chief Outsider Principal and Founder Art Saxby. “Clay and Sharon add to our team that provides part-time executives to client C-staffs to oversee marketing, strategy, and implementation. We’re finding more and more growth and mid-sized company CEOs attracted to this model, largely because our fees are tied directly to business results."
