Meet the people with the know how.

Bringing big ideas to life excites us, as they grow brands and add value to businesses. We consider ourselves an asset rather than a cost as we help businesses, big and small, profit from ideas.

That’s why we focus on making it happen, turning big ideas into reality is what we love to do.

Kerri Eckart

Kerri Eckart

CEO

Kerri launched Focused Marketing in 2006. Prior to that she spent eight years working as a highly successful tender writer and marketing specialist in London and Sydney.

Kerri’s ability to get inside the mind of a business has seen her win contracts with some of the largest companies in Australia. That’s because her processes are strategic, highly organised and distinctly ‘outside-the-box’.

Kerri is a member of the Corporate Institute of Marketing and the Australian Marketing Institute and is better at relationship building than E-Harmony.

She is also a wizard at rounding up creative and slightly eccentric marketing professionals, who she manages with a carrot shaped stick and a lot of encouragement.

Kerri has a not so secret obsession with interior design and is super passionate about the environment.
