Andrea is the owner of Hill Management Group, a group of brands (StrategyWerx, SupportWerx, MentorWerx) focused on helping small business owners succeed and prosper. She is renowned for making the most complex business subjects understandable. (“We speak strategeze, brandeze, marketeze, and all dialects of computerese.”) Her expertise extends into such areas as strategic development, leadership development, branding, marketing, merchandising, and lean manufacturing.
Before forming StrategyWerx, she was the CEO of the Bell Group/Rio Grande, one of the jewelry industry’s leading suppliers. Her experience also includes serving as president of After the Stork, an international children’s clothing designer and manufacturer, and director of merchandising for Playboy Enterprises direct marking catalog operation.
Small business, she says, is the backbone of North American commerce, and she draws on her years of experience — both her mistakes and her victories — to help her clients succeed and prosper.
