I hired Roberta for tactical and strategic initiatives at MetLife and Merrill Lynch. Roberta helped us launch four critical broker-dealer portals for the Wealth Strategies Group at MetLife. She created strategic content and critical resources to support the respective distribution channels, resulting in an outstanding broker experience. She did this ahead of a very aggressive schedule, in under six months.

Mary Glynn, Assistant Vice President, Operations Manager Accident and Health Group at Chubb

The opportunity was to engage a client base that was comprised of active traders and investors and talk with them about retirement saving and investing at our company. A specific challenge was to motivate them to move their hard earned savings from the “outside” firm to ours. The team at Princeton Marketing created a differentiating client engagement strategy with specific tactics designed to capture the attention of this target group with a direct and consistent call to action. The results? New funded retirement accounts on our platform grew beyond the stated objective and faster than we could imagine. The content and creative truly hit the mark.
