About StuBallatt

I’ve held senior roles in entertainment and news media, consumer and business services, and SaaS technology. I empower and challenge my teams to create positive, lasting organizational change. We foster clarity and consistent communications to reach the audience, and use a universal voice infrastructure fully aligned with target consumers' needs and beliefs to create a favorable environment for revenue generation. A few highlights from my resume:
  • As VP Marketing for DrFirst, I completely re-vamped the branding and marketing operations of this Software-as-a-Service company, launched email and database marketing, digital advertising, eCommerce, social media, content marketing and SEO/SEM, and increased lead generation by 77%.
  • As SVP Marketing & Research for Screenvision, I managed a large team executing more than 2,300 discreet monthly activities and implemented quarterly and annual strategic plans, product improvements, cost savings and new corporate positionings that drove our 25% Compound Annual Growth Rate.
  • As VP Marketing for NBC Universal, I oversaw strategic marketing and consumer promotions for a wide variety of broadcast, cable and web assets, generating millions of dollars in revenue through integrated consumer promotions and branded entertainment for leading brands.
I’m a committed mentor and have proven experience collaborating cross-functionally with senior management. I'm also a music enthusiast and guitar player, a fisherman and boater, a doting father, a very lucky husband, and a touch addicted to Twitter.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great day. Stu
