Episode Info:

Imtiaz spent a number of years as a management consultant with a focus on growth strategy, digital expansion, market entry strategy and cost reduction. After 10+ years as a consultant he joined Dow Jones & Company, leading strategy and analytics in circulation marketing. During his tenure, The Wall Street Journal became the #1 newspaper in the US and delivered record revenue and profits, with circulation growing while the rest of the industry was shrinking. Imtiaz was then asked to join the B2B side of the business, where he was responsible for right-sizing the business and developing a new go-to market approach that involved a fundamental redesign of sale processes, analytics, and how products were sold. After leaving Dow Jones, Imtiaz led strategy and business development at The Children's Place where he delivered on a number of new growth avenues. After spending the last few years launching and then selling his own business, Imtiaz now runs his own consulting firm, Accelerated Growth Solutions, that’s specialized in helping companies experience aggressive business growth.
