Pioneering his own analytic-centric approach to branding, William has consulted for some of the biggest brands in the business. Proctor & Gamble, the US Marine Corps, Ford, CVS, Home Depot, and LG have benefited from his brand strategies for growth, which have fundamentally shifted consumer attitudes and behaviors. William has led multiple international marketing seminars and teaches in the City College of New York’s Branding + Integrated Communications Master’s program. A7 combats a largely unnoticed yet massively damaging form of fraud, as a couponing blockchain technology company. A7 Core created a solution that not only stops it but also streamlines the costs of creating a coupon overall. The current process to create a single coupon involves multiple entities and could cost up to 57 cents per coupon. With A7 Core, companies cut out the middleman and would spend the only 12 cents per coupon.
