Gail's genuine passion for helping small businesses succeed filters down to every member of the Constant Contact team. Constant Contact has ‘cracked the code' to helping small businesses use modern marketing tools. She's even written a book, Engagement Marketing: How Small Business Wins in a Socially Connected World. Along the way, she has worked with, coached, and talked with, literally thousands of small businesses and organizations.
"It's hugely satisfying to walk into a local shop and find out from the owner that they're a Constant Contact customer," says Gail. "Honestly, there are few things harder than running a small business so knowing that we're helping them be better marketers and grow their customer base is very rewarding."
Gail has received numerous awards, including the 2013 Tech Luminary Lifetime Achievement Award from Boston Business Journal/Mass High Tech and the 2013 Small Business Influencer Champion Award presented by Small Business Trends and Small Biz Technology. A member of the Board of Trustees of the Massachusetts Technology Leadership Council and the Board of Directors of SCORE, Gail holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from The University of Pennsylvania and an MBA degree from the Amos Tuck School at Dartmouth.
A frequent speaker at industry events, Gail develops and tracks best practices in small business and nonprofit success, as well as entrepreneurship. Her 2013 TEDx talk, "Founders Can't Scale," delivered at TEDxBeaconStreet, offers a telling glimpse into Gail's management philosophy and personal drive. Less
