With a career that began as a social services therapist that inexplicably morphed into business development and marketing for the tech, fashion, finance and sports industries, Aitken is certainly a Maverick of Marketing, with a unique perspective on the buying experience and how a company’s marketing message will resonate with their audience.
“Usually what happens is companies become product driven, where they really market their product and try to appeal their product to the consumer themselves. And I’ve always had the belief that what we first have to do is sell the company itself. And once you convince people that this is a company to be trusted and to work with, the product sale comes pretty naturally after that.” Aitken further remarked, “We have to really treat everybody as a business to consumer model or people to people model as opposed to believing that you’re marketing to just one monolithic organization.”
