Member Spotlight: Lisa Stevens

Lisa Stevens has spent more than a decade immersed in the commercial real estate industry learning the essentials of what makes good marketing for design and construction firms.  For the past three years, Lisa has owned and managed MKT Collaborative, a marketing consulting firm which builds brands to add measurable value to growth-focused businesses. She has had the good fortune to work with a very diverse group of people in the industry including developers, general contractors, sub-contractors, engineers and architects.  This background enables Lisa to provide invaluable diversity with her knowledge and marketing approach as well as bring beneficial relationships to her clients.

Lisa is currently consulting with Bennett & Pless, an award-winning, consulting structural engineering firm recognized for its high level of structural expertise for over fifty years. In this capacity, she is assisting the company by focusing on the overall marketing goals and providing the marketing support to see those initiatives implemented.

As a new member of both SMPS Atlanta and the Programs Committee, Lisa is looking forward to the magnitude of opportunities to plug in and really become involved in the organization through her committee involvement, volunteering and networking events. She hopes to gain valuable knowledge and sharpen must-have skills through the many professional development and educational opportunities offered through SMPS.
