A Trusted Advisor Serving CEOs in Every Industry

A FRACTIONAL CHIEF STRATEGY OFFICER HELPING THE C-SUITE IMPACT PERFORMANCE

People like me are referred to as “the Idea Guy” – a term for the go-to person that generates new ideas consistently, over time. I mean, one great idea can be a fluke. Two and they still call you lucky. Do it for as long as me and then they call you The Idea Guy.

Officially titled Chief Strategy Officer (CSO), I work with the CEO (Chief Executive Officer), in conjunction with the CMO (Chief Marketing Officer), CRO (Chief Revenue Officer) and COO (Chief Operations Officer) to make a plan of action that solves the problems that impact their organization.

Side by Side, Every Step

A CAREER-CREATIVE BUILDING CONSENSUS, MAKING SURE THE PLAN GETS EXECUTED AS DESIGNED

I work with dozens of CEO’s each year which positions me in the center of current CEO thinking. I know why they win and I know why they fail.

As the Founder of Ideahaus®, I have thirty years of experience working with B2B, B2C and NonProfs. As an Academic, and author, I can share process, research and case stories that help make strategic decisions. At San Diego State University I was named the Zahn Chair of Creativity and Innovation and Inaugural Director of Idea Lab, teaching Design Thinking, Innovation and Creative Problem Solving. 

All of this means I really know how to generate new ideas, solve problems and develop strategies that work.

“When I took over the company there several problems that needed to be addressed. This is where I turned to my trusted advisor Kevin Popovic. Having worked with Kevin in the past I knew I would get someone who had the creative talent and passion to drive a meaningful solution.”

First, I want it on record that you provided us with excellent work. In addition, your personal commitment to the NobelBiz team spirit was an incredible added value in so many ways. You’re a leader and an often inspiration. I found that you were equally interested in providing sound advice while, similarly, able to accept insights and direction. You are a special person with a valuable service!

Kevin is one of those people who delivers exactly as promised. His reputation as an expert is well earned. We hired him as our CSO to get our marketing and communications plan moving in the right direction and in short order he delivered. If you have the chance to work with him, don’t pass it up.

Wayne Wolder, CEO, Newency

Kevin and his team have quickly grasped the essence of what we are about as a company and our culture. As we have progressed thru each step of his process it became clear that Kevin was acting as a member of our Leadership team, concerned about our issues, and acting like our Chief Strategy Officer. This was certainly an unexpected and positive result of of our continuing relationship.
