    Summary
    Karen Callahan’s 25+ years of delivering double-digit growth, siphoning large chunks of market share from competitors, and skyrocketing overall profitability for her clients makes her a smart investment for any marketing department or agency seeking to maximize ROI. Rainmaker, marketing strategist, and copywriter Karen Callahan has brought billions in profit to American Express during her tenure there as Regional Vice President. Karen not only acquired some of the world’s most profitable clients for American Express — and oversaw the highly-profitable marketing campaigns launched for these clients, but her masterful approach to client retention exploded Am Ex’s bottom line as well. Case in point: Karen’s acquisition and development of the U.S. Federal Government Agency account for American Express’ portfolio has continued to deliver over $1.2 billion annually and continues to grow every year even some 13 years later. Over the years the company’s top sales professionals unsuccessfully pursued this long time holdout. However, it was Karen’s ability to find the right decision makers, convince them to share their critical business needs, and then her ability to craft the right entry strategy that was key to successfully landing this highly-profitable and difficult acquisition. Her shrewd design of the company’s public sector entry strategy continues to deliver billions in spillover profits from federal, state, and local agencies to this day. As a senior sales leader with an extensive track record of major success in strategic planning, new business development, sales, direct response marketing, and relationship management in diverse industries, Karen understands what it takes to grow revenue and gain customer commitment.
