Janet’s most recent accomplishment was educational. She got on the fast-track and earned the Master of Global Business Management degree from Thunderbird School of Management at Arizona State University because it is a program that promised to “increase the ability to adapt to ever-changing business environments, tolerance for ambiguity and multicultural awareness.” Why else? Because she is a global marketing and sales leader who gets it about the lightning speed of change and embraces it. Janet is currently consulting with Invictus International Holding for holistic go-to-market strategies.
Janet is the woman who led the team responsible for the $10B strategic initiative that launched Cox Communication’s 1 Gigabit Internet Speeds. This was an award-winning effort.

Gigabit launch attained 200% of penetration target, improved Hispanic Market performance by 150% year over year, Wi-Fi launched attained 150% to plan, video re-launch resulted in a 800% performance gain and improved average revenue per customer by 80%.”
Throughout her career, Janet has leveraged her unusual blend of creativity and business acumen to break into new markets, turn around under-performing businesses, inspire her employees and make meaningful community connections. While at Earthlink Networks, she built and led a new sales and marketing organization to launch the company’s Wi-Fi business unit and attain double-digit annual revenue growth by developing go-to-market strategies for multiple distribution channels.
