No company affiliations.
Currently I am the Senior Marketing Manager at Super Bell Jewelry, where I was promoted in less than two months due to my efficient time management and in-depth industry knowledge. In this position I helped to build a brand new innovative program for the jewelry industry. This included strategic planning with the CEO and top company executives, copywriting, brand identity, writing a sales trading manual and training the sales team on the program and how to introduce it to vendors. I also traveled to tradeshows across the country to speak with vendors about the upcoming launch, as well as with the CEO to our largest clients to present the program on a one-to-one basis. Once the program launched I was able to garner over 100 vendor sign-ups to participate in the program in under two months. Participation in product and program development meetings and decisions is another key role of my position. I then amalgamate the finalized ideas into well written marketing materials to promote new products internally and externally. I have also worked at an eclectic array of companies, in a variety of industries, providing me with experience in many facets of the design and marketing industry. With a reputation for meeting the most challenging organizational goals and objectives, I am able to work under extreme time constraints and very defined financial and design limits to produce quality materials. I have an aptitude for synthesizing ideas, generating the creative component and telling a story in a visually compelling fashion plus produce a variety of ideas and models that demonstrate different approaches to the solution. In addition I have a Bachelor of Arts in Graphic Design and extensive experience working with Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Quark, and PowerPoint on both Mac and PC platforms. I pride myself on following a very firm conviction of mine: that every business is a service business and, to succeed, must address the distinct needs of each customer.
