I am currently seeking a new opportunity in Brand Management, Sales, Marketing, or Event Management. One of my favorite saying goes: "For those who still believe in dreams: chase them. Chase them until you're out of breath. Then keep running".
I have been fortunate enough to have a career path that has been more of a lifestyle than a series of jobs. From the time I danced the Electric Slide with a 90-year-old stroke patient to producing national Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series events, I made it my mission to work for companies that creatively inspire others to live their lives to the fullest.
Most recently, I worked for AMPLA, a new subsidiary brand of Quiksilver. I was a project manager for the launch of their innovative running footwear product. I collected trend research, cultivated marketing strategies and created a unique brand identity with the smartest use of capital.
I represented Competitor Group Inc. (CGI) as an Event Manager. At CGI, I was responsible for the execution of premier road racing events in several major markets. I implemented event specific marketing plans to drive registration and sponsorship deals, resulting in $1.9M in revenue.
Prior to CGI, I was the Field Representative for Brooks Sports in Eastern North Carolina Field. In this role, I managed an account list of over 100 stores to help drive sales of current Brooks inventory. I taught staff about products, assisted sales associates, hosted contests, and facilitated in-store events. I helped increase market share by 20% in my territory.
I am confident I can be a great asset to your team.
