Michael Conkle Marketing &  Consulting Services


I’ve enjoyed a career that has taught me a divergent thinking process not bound by conventional structures, rules, or practices. My track record has consistently delivered high-level performance under pressure within a team, and individual setting. I bring a broad range of management experiences that encompass traditional and online marketing, in addition to the operational side of both.
