Aaron and I have served together on the CIMA Board of Directors since 2005 and in that time I have been continually impressed with his natural leadership abilities, his keen sense for scoping out new opportunities, his strategic vision, and his drive and dedication to the CIMA brand.

Aaron’s efforts as VP Sponsorships have been intstrumental in fueling CIMA’s unprecedented growth and have given Aaron the unique luxury of expanding his professional network to literally thousands of senior executives in interactive marketing.

If you study Aaron’s immense network on LinkedIn alone, you’ll quickly come away concluding that he’s the most-connected expert in the interactive industry – regardless of the geo. Aaron will no doubt build his new company - Connectual - into a powerhouse digital practice in record time. I look forward to watching Aaron fulfill on his promise to himself and the community with his bold new venture.

I got to know Aaron several years ago when our firms partnered on some search business. During this time I worked very closely with Aaron on account management and strategy. Although I was somewhat new to the industry, Aaron proved to be a very patient and inspiring mentor.

His knowledge of the online space is unparalleled and I still find myself turning to his weekly column for the most forward thinking ideas in search and social media.

I had the pleasure of meeting Aaron while learning more about Resolution Media and the role Aaron played in building and shaping the company. It was immediately clear to me Aaron was passionate about his contributions to Resolution Media and proud of what he and his colleagues had accomplished for the company in a short amount of time. As he should be!

I have also found Aaron to be an accomplished author/blogger and someone who writes about the digital marketing space with the knowledge, insight and wit of an insider. Aaron is the type of professional who you meet and immediately want to learn more about and partner with to obtain success. I look forward to working with Aaron in the future and supporting his upcoming endeavors.

Gerry Bavaro | Executive Vice President, Didit
was with another company when working with Aaron at Resolution Media

Although I've only known Aaron for a short time through mutual friends and former co-workers and also as fellow MediaPost Search Insider columnists, that's all the time I needed to realize that he's one of very few in the online media and search marketing world who are visionary in their thinking, yet witty in their approach to writing, speaking, and bantering about what makes our rapidly evolving industry go 'round.

Certain people in the industry have appealing or interesting thoughts and opinions, and whether we agree or disagree, we find ourselves coming back for more. Aaron though is eye opening in easily digestible, creative ways that make you go 'hmmm'. He always reminds us that we're on a fun, exciting ride together down digital marketing lane...more than ever, we need 'Willy Wonkas' like him helping us along towards the golden ticket.

Aaron has the valuable combination of fully understanding the traditional world of marketing and media, and the opportunities that entertainment and technology present for a new paradigm. This combination has led to powerful partnerships which bridge these two worlds, and press clients to be more innovative and impactful.

Aaron gets digital. He gets branded entertainment. Aaron gets brand power. He has the whole package.
