Betty is a visionary, a fierce competitor and above all, a firm believer that great campaigns must always deliver outstanding return on investment (ROI). Growing up in the industry working on brands like Verizon, ConAgra Brands and Ritz-Carlton, Betty loved the creativity and strategy involved in marketing communications. But she always felt something was missing. The sharp businesswomen in her started Domus. As founder and CEO of Domus, Betty built a different type of agency—an agency where resources and teams are customized for each account to meet a client’s exact needs. Betty grew up as the daughter of a coach, and the bumper sticker on the family care always read: “Winning isn’t Everything, It’s the Only Thing.” Whether it was pitching a softball or pitching an account, Betty was taught to win. Her unrelenting desire to win leads Domus to achieve incredible results for clients. Infectiously passionate and incomparably bright, Betty emanates possibilities everywhere she goes, whether it’s as an astute seer of new market opportunities or as a trailblazer for women’s empowerment. She can zero in, like a laser, on the market opening where her clients can be first in the market or dramatically differentiated to expand sales and profits. Her vision is uncanny. Her heart is big. Betty will do whatever it takes to help her clients win, and has re-invented the advertising industry model to do so.
