In my previous roles I have created and implemented the marketing strategies, managed client projects from the inception to the completion and analyzed market research data compiled during surveys and interviews. I am a mature individual who harnesses my creative skill set to manage even the most intricate problems. I developed the ability to maintain a calm demeanor during customer interfaces. I was integral in helping develop and maintain relationships with clients. During many client meetings I frequently interfaced with Marketing Vice Presidents, Directors and Managers of various advertising agencies and marketing departments. I have developed a creative flair in which I developed new customer management protocols. I’ve coordinated resources, maintained a high level of quality, trained new employees, handled the day to day duties and solved any problems that arose both on the customer side and internally.
