Mark “SpinDizzy” Bowen
Most recently I have withdrawn somewhat from the active pursuit of a fixed business and have entered a period where my interests are in personal consultations with client companies. My desire is to find emerging businesses, or those that are recreating themselves, in order to pursue interesting services, products and disruptive business models. These are companies who wish to move from concepts and visions to actionable business marketing models and plans.
Prior to this new form of “semi-retirement” I led BTU Marketing Services, LLC’s strategy, business model development, and the development, documentation, and execution of integrated marketing and business projects. My participation in the framing of current and emerging competitive land-line and wireless broadband business and marketing models, as well as the development, production and deployment of IP delivered business and entertainment media content (whitepapers, video, animation, audio, interactive web conferences etc.) formed the center of my strategic thinking while leading BTU.
From 2001 to 2009, I was with TDS Telecommunications Corporation , where I led the consolidation of TDS’ two principle brands into a single brand. I also led the communications efforts of TDS Metrocom as we penetrated the monopoly markets of the former Baby Bell SBC/Ameritech.
Formerly with Wray Castle Ltd./Wireless Developer, a think-tank of wireless engineering, software development and marketing experts, I served as a member of the executive management team, leading the product development, production and marketing organizations. I also managed the design and production of software developer education for Ericsson’s original Bluetooth chip deployment, AT&T’s “Angel” fixed wireless deployment and for many of the early developer programs that enabled the introduction and use of smart phones, tablets and the emerging “Internet of Things”.
Active for many years in the “online music collaboration” movement, Spindizzy Labs was originally conceived to house all of my music, art and multimedia entertainment efforts. As BTU exited the building Spindizzy Labs now hosts the efforts in music creation (Kompoz.com is an essential partner), broader storytelling efforts like our flagship project “Ho Kam Lo” and the continuing work to promote the music of Sweet Maya.
It is my hope that this site will continue to be an outlet for many types of musical, artistic and technological projects.
