Meet the Berbay
The Account Team
more than 25 years of success in strategic marketing to help ensure a positive outcome for Berbay clients.
As the nucleus of the Berbay team, she empowers her staff to share their expertise and experience in every project, multiplying the benefits each client receives from working with Berbay.
"We think of ourselves as an elite strike force," she
"Our clients don't get just one person; they get everyone's thoughts, all of our various strengths, working together."
Sharon's experience-and the tenacity and diligence of her
team-also means that marketing plans for Berbay clients are implemented effectively and quickly.
Thinking strategically is second nature for Sharon
staff, so no time is lost in the planning and preparation phase of marketing.
When other firms might declare victory with a project, Sharon
continues to look for ways to further leverage the material they have produced.
"We don't just say, 'Great, we got coverage on this story,'" she
"We say, 'Great, we've got this news release out.
Now what else can we do with this information that will further increase our client's exposure to prospects and opinion leaders?'"
Ultimately for Sharon
, it's all about creating satisfied and successful clients.
"I can't imagine doing this job without caring about our clients' success," she
"We get tremendous satisfaction from gaining visibility for our clients and watching their success grow as a result."
