About Susan Trout


Communications Consultant
Communications Consultant

As a senior-level technology marketing and communications professional, I’m adept at developing and executing plans for launching your start-up business or up-leveling your company’s existing strategic communications, executive or internal communications, branding or content strategy.

I have a passion and a preference for being hands-on with any task or challenge I face in order to deliver on your objectives.   At Novell, Proxim Wireless, Cisco Systems, NetApp and other networking companies, I created strategic messaging to successfully brand leaders and organizations, ensuring alignment with corporate goals.

While many marketers today bring expertise in a single area such as PR, channel marketing or social media, I deliver on initiatives that require a high degree of business acumen and a broad set of skills. I’ve worked in a number of functional marketing and communications roles, and have taken on increasing responsibility in each capacity.

I’m proud of the fact that, as vice president of marketing for a rapidly growing company, I contributed to its ranking as #180 in Forbes’ list of Best Small Companies.
