Alan Bradford - Senior Marketing Automation Specialist, INTL FC Stone
Lead Generation technology leader at fortune 100 financial services firm INTL FCStone Inc, I plant my flag at the intersection of marketing, technology, and customer experience. With 15+ years of experience beginning in early web-to-print platforms at Minacs and Quad Graphics up and through modern marketing automation at agencies like Nelson Schmidt and currently wrangling email and landing page design and deployment, lead routing, analytics, and technology backend, I’ve seen a lot of different platforms try to solve everything. I’ve learned that maybe instead of trying to find one thing to do everything, picking the best in breed small platforms or solutions for each specialized category leads to better outcomes, flexibility, and workflow. If the platform’s bread and butter is one specific thing, it had better be good at it.
