I take a methodical approach to marketing and design in that I ensure audacity, authenticity and clarity are ingrained in all communication. I maintain an understanding that as technology evolves and channels increase, there are core communication fundamentals of story, content, messaging and visual impact that are foundational to all inbound and outbound mediums. From a team building perspective, I believe in professional independence and empower people to want more and find passion in their projects while being efficient in their workflow; always maintaining a line-of-sight to results and the revenue impact. Overarching my approach is an understanding that a companies value-add, market extent and customer profile must always be top-of-mind and are the multiplier-metric for growth potential.
Senior Marketing Manager
I am a skilled marketer and strategist with over ten years of commercial real estate experience. My education and experience in marketing and commercial real estate offer a unique skill set that delivers forward-thinking marketing and business strategies. As Senior Marketing Manager for Colliers' U.S. Business Development Center, I partner with brokers, national service line leadership, and regional leadership in developing effective pursuit strategies to grow our company's market share.
Before joining the Business Development Center, I served as Marketing Manager for the Colliers San Diego Region and Interim Marketing Manager for the company's Arizona Region. I partnered with brokers to assist with new business pursuits, brand creation, content delivery, client relationships, and developing new marketing strategies. I also oversaw the Marketing Department for both regions, which offered an extensive list of in-house services that include graphic design, branding, web design, and video production. Our teams worked closely with brokers and clients, asking insightful questions and requesting feedback to ensure the team delivered avant-garde marketing and branding materials to Colliers' internal and external clients. Additionally, I worked closely with the San Diego leadership team and assisted with recruiting new talent and developing new processes.
As Regional Marketing Ambassador for the Southwest Region for the Colliers Centers of Excellence (CCOE), I collaborated with regional and national leaders to apply new tools and resources in our region. Together, with the Regional Research Ambassador, we led a team of subject matter experts that adopted initiatives and generated tools to be implemented throughout the United States.
The knowledge I have gained throughout my tenure in commercial real estate is multifaceted. In addition to a strong marketing foundation, my commerical real estate experience also includes handling the operations and leasing activity of a sizable Class A office portfolio, facilitating deal coordination for capital markets transactions, conducting lease analyses, and analyzing data for reporting purposes. I also hold a California Real Estate Salesperson license.
I am passionate about developing creative solutions that will strengthen client relationships and delivering success to our brokers, clients, and company. How can I help you accelerate your success?
