As the founder of BKM Marketing Associates, Bruce's roots in client-side marketing transcends into a unique understanding of our clients' passion for generating results. At the same time, he strongly believes that the agency and consulting side is first and foremost a service business based on achieving and surpassing client expectations. These values — results and service — form the core of every client relationship.
I was the neighborhood kid that was always selling something door-to-door—seeds, magazine subscriptions, newspapers, lawn mowing, snow shoveling, you name it. This passion propelled me through college and business school. My DNA contains some behavioral helix that seeks to match efficient solutions to people’s needs. Today at BKM Marketing, we help clients do the exact same thing.
I’m grateful for absolutely everything—both the good and not-so-good. I’m very fortunate for my family, our team here at BKM, and of course our clients. However, the greatest gifts of all are the lessons we learn, or the doors that open, from the inevitable challenges life presents. A very relevant example is the genesis of BKM Marketing itself, which stemmed from an abrupt corporate downsizing.
Inquisitive. Confident. Helpful. Fearless. Focused.
Few things replenish me more than connecting with the powers of nature—especially around the ocean in warm weather and the mountains in cold weather. Paddling through high seas in a rowing shell or battling gravity on skis connects me to powers greater than all of us—a humbling feeling that refuels my cells, restores my perspective, and clears brain clutter for fresh thinking.
Jimmy Buffett and Warren Buffett are awesome, but the real heroes are the people who tirelessly spend their lives creating a better world for others. The obvious ones include the military, first responders, ER staff, and teachers. But the ones that impress me the most are the invisible heroes we see every day-- like single parents, cancer patients, or immigrants seeking a better life for their children.
