About Marketing International
Marketing International was founded in January 1973 by Executives from IBM, Xerox and Control Data, led by George W. Rich to undertake new business development and marketing projects for technology-driven companies who needed to strengthen sales and marketing. MI projects have been evenly split between Fortune 500 industry leaders and new start-up type companies in all aspects of information technology. The international component of our work, as in our name, has also approximated a 50/50 split with U.S. and international projects. Worldwide strategies and operations are common within large corporations, however smaller, younger companies are also looking for strategic alliances with overseas partners to expand their markets.
The philosophy of Marketing International is one of teaming-up with the client’s management team and key employees to achieve a strategic goal through a combination of good planning and good execution. Unlike most marketing consulting firms, who stop at the point of laying out a plan, we believe the execution of the plan is just as important as developing a strategy. Today, Marketing International has broadened its services to include the execution and coordination of program content and program campaigns. Marketing International continues to focus on the technology sector with a specialization in the Microsoft Dynamics 365 channel partner based strategies, programs and strategic alliances.
