We believe in expertise without egos. That’s why every member of our management team is both highly talented and down-to-earth. Meet the strategic, creative and technical experts who lead nFusion.
John is an expert on how marketing change agents can have an immediate impact on their organizations. (He’s even written the book on it.)
Since co-founding nFusion over a decade ago, John’s helped marketers engage customers in innovative ways, and his unique perspective has made him a trusted advisor to marketing executives both on nFusion’s client list and at organizations around the country. He also shares his insights on marketing and marketing leadership at Forbes’ CMO Network and nFusion’s blog.
John’s experience includes lead marketing roles during Dell’s rapid-growth years and the early days of the IBM PC and he has guided the growth of nFusion from day one by valuing employees, creating a collaborative culture and focusing on making a positive impact.
Tom is a strategic thinker who doesn’t just come up with ideas — he activates them. His unique approach to problem solving helped him co-found nFusion over a decade ago and serves him today as an active advisor to nFusion. His passion has also inspired him to found multiple start-ups, including Nextscreen, Network Solar and NextLogic Capital, and take established companies to a higher level. Before nFusion, Tom worked as Dell’s worldwide vice president of marketing, Toshiba’s vice president of marketing and as a consultant for McKinsey.
Jay, one of the agency’s three founders, serves nFusion as a strategic advisor who challenges the status quo.

He puts his business skills to good use (and to use for a good cause) as CEO of Forefront Networks and founding director of The First Tee of Greater Austin.
