Tim Howard discusses building his brand and the value of trusted business relationships at the Experian Marketing Services 2014 Client Summit
U.S. Men's National Soccer Team goalkeeper shares his vision for building and managing his brand, along with the role of marketing and social media in the rise of U.S. soccer popularity
New York, N.Y., Sept. 3, 2014 — Experian Marketing Services, a global provider of integrated consumer insights, targeting, data quality and cross-channel marketing, hosted a fireside chat with U.S. Men’s National Soccer Team goalkeeper Tim Howard at its 2014 Client Summit. During the fireside chat, Howard discussed how he decides to align with brands that match his personal and professional image.
Addressing an audience of more than 1,000 top marketing executives from the world’s leading brands at the event, Howard described the formula he uses to make business partnership decisions. “We try and look for a good fit,” said Howard. “There’s not always a blueprint for that, but it’s a feeling.” He continued, “I don’t want to lend my name to just any old company. I have put in a lot of hard work into my own brand, which is basically on the field, trying to be a decent guy and a good player.”
