He has been featured and quoted on CNN Money, Fortune.com, Bloomberg, the Wall Street Journal and many other national and regional media. Power and company are currently in the final stages of taking Wild Creations public with an IPO scheduled before the end of 2012.
Power is a sought after speaker on entrepreneurship, the toy industry, and making social media work for business. He is also a recognized expert on marketing and media strategies, product development, branding, and market trends.
Power currently has an active role in the Toy Industry Association’s Political Action Committee.
