Since forming DemandRevenue in early 2021, Alan has leveraged his marketing, finance, and P&L general management background to support private equity and venture portfolio companies as a Fractional CMO,  Interim CMO, and an executive advisor to CMOs and marketing leaders across SaaS software and health technology firms.

Being a proponent of customer-led growth, Alan assists his clients in building a robust and sustainable infrastructure. This infrastructure, fundamental to the success of any organization, includes the key components of people, processes, technology, data, and analytics. By focusing on these areas, Alan ensures that his clients are well-equipped to efficiently scale up their operations and achieve substantial growth in a customer-driven environment. Moreover, his services also contribute significantly to enhancing cross-functional alignment within client organizations.

Through improved communication and collaboration, and long-term integrated strategic campaigns, sales, marketing, product, customer success, and marketing departments work cross-functionally toward shared goals, greatly improving overall efficiency,  productivity and growth.
