Which would you rather be - the heart surgeon or the general practitioner? Which one makes more money?
Steve Brazell is the architect of "Competition Removal"—the idea that it is easier for an individual or company to make their competition irrelevant through innovation and differentiation rather than competing with them head-to-head.
Affectionately known as "The Hitman," he is an ideator—and helps companies and individuals grow marketshare and profits by developing and communicating new ideas that set their brands and products apart.
Steve founded Hitman Inc almost 15 years ago, and works with some of the world's leading corporate and celebrity brands. He also works with start-ups providing marketing and branding expertise as well as early round investment. He is the recipient of multiple Addy and Bronze Quill awards, and was one of Esquire's 45 Under 45 Professional Men. He recently developed and launched the world's first (patent pending) online Branding Engine— Brand Op.™
