Chief Marketing Officer

Chad brings years of sales, business development, and marketing skills to Dirt Media.


After getting my start in sales selling cell phones (anyone remember the old flip phones?) for a small business in Baltimore County, I quickly realized what I was meant to do, sell. Ideas, things, software, direct mail, web pages, screwdrivers, HRIS Systems and Health Care. Along the way I discovered that I had a knack for building, training and leading amazing sales teams; teams assignment writing service that knew how to win. I also discovered that when you help someone else achieve their vision and goals, either personally or in business, there is no better feeling. I’ve led sales initiatives for small to mid-sized businesses as well as Fortune 500 companies and have enjoyed much success along the way.
