"Sharon is an amazing addition to the West tribe of executives," said Karen Hayward, Managing Partner for Chief Outsiders' West region.

This track record - along with a passion for optimizing people and processes - is exactly what the typical Chef Outsiders client is looking for when engaging one of our part-time Chief Marketing Officers."

Spooler, based in Orange County, California, has spent more than two decades as an analytics-focused marketer and product management expert for companies looking to balance high growth and scalability.

Spooler comes to Chief Outsiders from her most recent position as Chief Marketing Officer of auto financing company BlueYield, where she build the chaannel marketing and analysis functions from the ground up, including significant expansion into pre-approved direct mail. Prior, Spooler was Chief Marketing Officer at StraighterLine, a for-profit higher education company.

Spooler has also worked in B2B marketing for technology companies ID Analytics and FICO. Both organizations leverage proprietary data to develop risk assessments that are used by financial services, telecommunications and healthcare companies.

Spooler is experienced in leading customer segmentation and market analysis strategies to deliver improved positioning, enhancing traditional and digital marketing strategies, and building analysis and measurement capabilities.
