Expect Something Remarkable


Hi, I am David Kinard, a senior-level marketer offering significant career experience in marketing, branding, and the creation of products that engage customers in contemporary and relevant ways.


I've had the privilege of working with a wide variety of organizations in the development of their strategy, vision, and marketing plans. But right now I am Associate Vice President of Marketing and Communications for Physicians Insurance A Mutual Company.


They're the premier provider of medical professional liability insurance in the

northwest,  in addition to leading the way in risk management and medical continuing education. In short, we're working to increase patient health and safety -- a noble cause indeed!


I also am privileged to be a national-level speaker at health care events and conferences on social media, marketing strategy, and consumer engagement topics. More recent presentations include sessions with ACAP, the Health Plan Alliance, the Medicaid Managed Care Congress, and the Asian American Advertising Federation annual conference.


I also am a regular host for the American Marketing Association's Marketing Power Podcast series where I interview authors and thought leaders on marketing topics that impact today's marketing professional. Click on the RADIO link for access to past interviews.
