Joe Fitzgerald, Executive Vice President
Joe has over 14 years of experience in targeted insert media, digital media, direct mail, and product sampling. He also has a technical knowledgebase which, combined with his “obsession” over the details, has helped to create unique, highly efficient systems and customized solutions for TMS and its clients. To complement his “hands-on” experience, he earned his MBA from Georgia State University in 2004. Through the years Joe has aided clients, including many Fortune 100 and 500 companies, in maximizing campaign performance and exceeding established goals.
» Work hard and play hard… but on occasion, rest and recharge.
» Try new things and avoid too much routine. Never stop learning.
» Take charge. Create goals and pursue them with passion.
» Success requires relentless hard work and smart work, not just one or the other.
» No solution fits all problems; what worked well yesterday may not be best for today, and the
best answer often lies somewhere in the middle.
» Our job is to work harder to make the client’s job easier and more successful.
