John Pace was a born entrepreneur. On his eighteenth birthday he planned and implemented his first marketing strategy complete with an event platform. Three years later, John sold the intellectual property rights and trademark to Anheuser Busch which became part of their Michelob brand introduction. Over the next twenty-five years, John designed and implemented data-driven marketing plans to introduce exciting new products and innovative branding strategies that integrated corporate giving with organizations' direct marketing strategies. John has been CEO of an emerging organization and advisor to the C-Suites of Fortune 500 organizations. John says experience has taught him to lead by example and exceed expectations by keeping his team highly motivated. John often makes the statement, “I win when my organization wins.”
