| Name: Charlie Baker
Company: Babcock & Jenkins, Portland, Ore.
Goal: "Continue to strengthen with additional services for the long term. There is a valuable service to looking at other opportunities."
Babcock & Jenkins, which develops direct marketing sales platforms for clients such as Hewlett-Packard Co. and Siemens AG, has had 75% compound annual revenue growth for the last five years, reaching $18.5 million last year. The slowing economy notwithstanding, Baker is keen on keeping that record intact. “It’s about continuing to innovate business opportunities so we can stay on this very aggressive growth path,” he said.
Achieving this means raising Babcock & Jenkins’ profile, Baker said. "I would like the rest of the world to know we are a leading company,” he said. “We have not done much marketing of Babcock & Jenkins."
Baker intends to change that. To help in that effort, the company is currently seeking a head of marketing, a new position, he said.
