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."
Over the years, Gail has been honored with numerous awards and recognitions for her work in technology and with small organizations. Some of those honors include the Boston Business Journal’s Tech Luminary Lifetime Achievement Award, SCORE’s Lou Campanelli Award, Ernst and Young’s Entrepreneur of the Year, and the Boston Globe’s Top 30 Innovators.
Serving on the Boards of the Massachusetts Technology Leadership Council, Blade, and SCORE, Gail holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from The University of Pennsylvania and an MBA from the Amos Tuck School at Dartmouth College.
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
