September 13, 2018•30 min
In this episode of the Vet2BizLife Podcast, my guest is Ed Marsh, Founder and of Consilium Global Business Advisors and an Army Veteran where he served as an Infantry Officer. Ed is a strategy & growth consultant, an independent director, author and keynote speaker, located in the Greater Boston area. He helps executives connect the dots between their corporate aspirations and their team’s practical execution. Ed started his professional career jumping from planes and running raids and ambushes as a grunt. He launched his civilian career selling and marketing industrial products and services. He’s been an industrial distributor sales manager, partners with a German machine manufacturer, a rep for explosive detection devices in Nigeria and he founded and ran a company in India selling used machinery from the US. As an Export Advisor to American Express, he uses these experiences and others from markets including Brazil, and Vietnam to help companies expand globally. While he’s a Presidential “E” award winner, he’s at home in American factories where the smell of cutting oil and “crump” of the press is comforting and familiar. And that’s where he helps senior leadership visualize growth opportunity in disrupted industries, build strategy, and coach execution. His ideas are unorthodox and his tools are digital. He helps companies that still put fax numbers on business cards meet their prospects where they are. When Ed’s not writing for Entrepreneur, Industry Today and other outlets, he’s often quoted on strategy, sales & marketing in USA Today and Inc. Otherwise he’s in airports, clients’ factories, or on stage delivering keynotes that entertain and distill today’s market stress into simple themes. Ed was commissioned through Army ROTC at Johns Hopkins University. You can contact Ed at - Email LinkedIn Facebook Instagram Please listen, rate, review and share!
