    Summary:
    TenCate Protective Fabrics USA manufactures advanced textiles to guard and save lives. Firefighters, soldiers, electricians, petrochemical workers, first responders and thousands of other professionals rely on the protection and comfort of fabrics from TenCate. I look forward to connecting with safety professionals and learning about your needs in personal protection equipment (PPE) and how TenCate might develop innovations for your future. ---------- I tell stories ― sometimes using elaborate marketing campaigns with interweaving components building upon itself to a pinnacle, while others may be a simple, 140-character tweet with the entire plot contained within. The thousand-word photo might provide the tale or perhaps an online video with thousands of spoken words, a crescendo of musical impact and moving images chronicle the beginning, middle and end. My career is about telling stories. First as a journalist ― the immediate historian ― who spoke to the witnesses, victims, innovators, protectors and characters in the drama of life, commerce and government. As the digital age emerged, those ink-stained words moved to pixel-bright fonts melded in forms and patterns to convey larger accounts of businesses in websites. Momentum propelled me into marketing where the stories grow more complex and simple at the same time, inspiring consumers to buy. The complexity of marketing often overwhelms what’s very simple — generating a human-to-human connection. At one end, we find the customer; at the other, the people of the company. The connecting string might be high-tech, but the story must be simple and must convey a real humanity to create an ongoing engagement. At the core, I always tell stories. And now it’s time for me to tell your story.
