Portia Mount

Founder + Chief Marketing Officer Mount Creative, LLC

Hi, I’m Portia.

I am a Chief Marketing Officer and CMO Advisor with 20+ years spans across Fortune 500 B2B SaaS and industrial manufacturing companies, agencies and global NGOs. As a marketer there is science and alchemy in what I do. I focus on clearly defining the problem to solve, ensuring the marketing plan is aligned to the business objectives and sales strategy,and then testing and learning to optimize marketing programs. I have a lot of fun doing it.

My specialty is marketing strategy and execution, brand strategy and growth marketing. I am passionate about building high-performing marketing teams that can move beyond the tactical to become true engines for growth. I love creating powerful, sticky B2B brands through authentic customer connections. I believe marketing should be rigorously analytical and wildly creative to delight and captivate customers.

I have deep experience in helping companies and organizations transform their brands during major transitions such as acquisitions, spinoffs, or changing market dynamics.

My “X factor” is I am an experienced executive coach trained not only in coaching individual leaders but working with teams who strive to attain a higher level of performance. I am passionate about helping teams unlock their potential to get great work done through a culture of empathy, accountability, collaboration and a performance-mindset.

My approach to every engagement is collaborative, practical, and hands-on.

Prior to founding Mount Creative, LLC, I held held Chief Marketing Officer and executive leadership roles at Topcoder (NYSE: WIT), Trane Technologies, Ingersoll Rand, the Center for Creative Leadership, Edelman Worldwide, and Burson-Marsteller.

A core value of mine is helping more women step into executive leadership roles. I co-authored a best-selling career advice book for women, “Kick Some Glass: Ten Ways Women Succeed at Work on Their Own Terms” (pub. McGraw Hill Education) and am writer and host of The Manifista, a career podcast for aspiring women. I speak and write extensively on marketing and brand strategy, women and leadership, and the future of work.
