Suzy Im

Founder and Head of BDMT Global,
an international division of TribalVision

A widely-known name in business development and global marketing, Suzy joined TribalVision Worldwide, a premier outsourced digital marketing department, in 2013 and established its international division, Business Development & Marketing Transformation (BDMT) Global, formerly known as TribalVision Asia, to support Asian clients entering the U.S. market. Both as a business development consultant and a hands-on practitioner, she has played a transformative role in helping generate powerful global business operations for clients worldwide (e.g. GE, Siemens, Samsung, Teradyne, Gateway).

TribalVision Asia has grown into its own business unit beyond Asian clients and was rebranded as Business Development & Marketing Transformation (BDMT) Global to reflect the key values it brings to its clients worldwide. BDMT Global combines the best of both: a digital growth skillset from TribalVision as the parent company and our own unique expertise in global growth, specifically expanding Asian companies beyond Asia.

Often assuming the role of a virtual CMO, Suzy has amassed a portfolio of key successes in a wide variety of technology enterprises in Asia and beyond. Suzy works with technology companies and life science/healthcare organizations to engage audiences, drive market needs/sales, and meet various client goals.

In addition to her business career, Suzy is also an adjunct professor of Marketing and Communications at Emerson College located in Boston since 2004.

In the technology and B2B arena, Suzy works with leading IT industry analysts to help technology vendors gain visibility, build valuable references, penetrate global markets, and create a strong demand. She has also worked with a wide variety of technology enterprises and has worked with leading global brands including Siemens, GE, Gateway, Konika, HP, Samsung, and LG.

Suzy and her work has been recognized in Fortune Magazine, Digital Times, and e-Times. As an engaging event speaker, she has delivered numerous keynote addresses and seminars. At numerous global organizations, Suzy executed executive training sessions, and spearheaded conference marketing, business development, and leadership communications efforts at numerous global organizations and events.
