With over 30 years of experience in sales, management, training, operations and finance, Michael runs the day-to-day business of Duke Marketing. His extensive background plus course materials he created are implemented with many of Duke Marketing’s clients. “Even the best marketing will have limited effectiveness unless the company integrates it into every level of the organization,” stated Michael Fagen. “Client relations not only keeps you in business, it is paramount for success. One of our objectives is to relate marketing to sales and to client service, creating continuity, making a consistent and effective total campaign.”
“The reason I joined Duke Marketing is the enthusiasm and spirit that drives this company,” says Michael. “I have not been involved with a company that offers such a package of total solutions.”
One of Michael’s greatest pleasures is teaching and motivating people, to watch them grow, and to see them realize their potential. Combining those skills with his ability to run organizations and manage finance makes him a perfect fit for Duke Marketing.
