Overabove Names Deven Spear Chief Innovation Officer

Essex, CT – Deven Spear has joined Connecticut-based Overabove as the strategic marketing firm’s Chief Innovation Officer.

Former managing partner of Spear Consultants Ltd. and CEO and founder of BrightDoor Systems, Inc., Spear previously partnered with the Overabove team on successful sales and marketing engagements including Homestead Preserve in Virginia and New Hampshire’s Mount Washington Resort.

“Joining Overabove gives me a great opportunity to apply the lessons I’ve learned in real estate sales and marketing to a wide variety of Overabove clients,” comments Spear, who notes the firm is also developing targeted strategies for Fortune 500 high-tech companies. 

In addition to cultivating new business opportunities for Overabove, Spear is closely involved in Overabove’s work on strategic marketing for Wildlight, a new community being developed by Rayonier’s community development subsidiary Raydient People + Places.

“Overabove was built for the way people consume information today,” states cofounder and principal John Visgilio, “and digital is changing everything.” Hiring Deven to focus on marketing technology is another step in the firm’s continuing evolution as a disruptive marketing leader, he notes.
