I’ve always been fascinated by markets and economics – both the macro and the micro – from new products and services to distribution to brand building to product psychology to leveraging technology for growth.

As a partner in Edmundson Group, I’m able to share my experiences and knowledge with the leaders of mid-market companies by designing and implementing modern marketing strategies and technologies for today’s digital marketplace. In addition to my consulting work here, I serve as the CEO and founder of Rehinged.AI, an AI startup delivering modern marketing and sales intelligence.

I’ve consciously spent the first 25 years of my career developing my experience as an entrepreneur, marketer and technologist.

As an entrepreneur, in addition to my work running Rehinged.AI, I’ve been a co-founder of 3 companies, including Medelis, an oncology drug development services company which I co-founded, helped grow and as a board member, helped guide to a successful exit in 2016, and Qlutch Marketing, Inc., whose marketing education digital offerings at qlutch.com and marketingmo.com are used by over 50,000 marketers worldwide.

My work at Hinge Capital / Venture51, an early-stage venture capital firm, allows me to constantly evaluate new technologies, growth trends, emerging markets and customer acquisition tactics.

As a strategic marketer, I’ve designed positioning and brand strategies for more than 100 companies; co-founded and developed qlutch.com and the comprehensive Brand Strategy Toolkit available at MarketingMO.com; authored or co-authored 3 business books with a focus on marketing; achieved #1 rankings in Google for competitive non-branded search terms; designed, written or managed more than 300 multimedia B2B marketing campaigns; and designed, launched and managed numerous successful content marketing programs.

I’ve definitely taken a non-traditional route throughout my career, but I find it immensely challenging and rewarding and enjoy allocating time to work hands-on with other entrepreneurs and executives.

“What a tremendous experience to go through the Next Level Leadership work! From day one I was blown away with the amount of knowledge Ken and Shad brought to us from their experience in the CEO world. They taught how to identify and maintain critical values for your company and how to create a competitive advantage as a leader. I am so grateful to have been a part of this year-long experience.”
