organizations at American Express, NationsBank and Duke Energy.
She's worked on product development, brand management, research
and public relations for brands such as Close-up Toothpaste, Listerine,
and Scott Paper. Her American Express responsibilities included
introducing the American Express Gift Cheque and the management
of the classic Karl Malden campaign for American Express Travelers
Cheques. She utilized her brand knowledge in the financial services
and utility industries during the merger years for NationsBank,
now Bank of America, and Duke Power, now Duke Energy. Linda understands
the power of a brand and how to use it effectively to manage communications.
In 2005, the firm's practice was expanded to include leadership
development and executive coaching services. Linda is adept at developing
and managing her coaching relationships with executives at many
levels. Her extensive skills in strategic communications initiatives
within merger and changing environments are enhanced by her ability
to bridge diverse cultural perspectives.
