About


Sam handles a variety of strategic and administrative responsibilities for Prescient, playing a general project management role and working directly with the firm’s CEO on matters critical to the growth of the firm.

After joining Prescient in mid-2018 to assist with lead generation and client management, Sam transitioned to overseeing the firm’s marketing initiatives and sales processes. Throughout 2019 he led multiple brand expansion efforts, dictating the budgeting and strategy for dozens of industry events, and personally handling the logistics involved in multiple exhibiting sponsorships across the country. He standardized processes around sales pipeline reporting, inbound lead qualification, and quarterly business development efforts, as well as helped restructure the firm’s website and advertising strategy to better align with its four-practice model.

After being promoted to his current role at the end of 2019, Sam co-designed and implemented a company intranet site to overhaul processes related to contract management, operations workflow, sensitive data storage, and general internal collaboration. Currently, he works closely with practitioners to expand the firm’s market reach and better leverage contemporary trends of data visualization and graphic design.
