It is a pleasure to share my experience, successes, and almost 20 years of excellence in marketing and communications.

My mastery of marketing strategy across a multitude of channels, including digital, social, and traditional channels, experience developing and managing budgets, as well as leading and developing teams would make me an asset to any organization.

My key accomplishments include:

  • Integrated Marketing – My branding, ad planning, and collateral ideation efforts for YMCA Afterschool have brought about tremendous growth each year, with a boom during the 2019-2020 school year of more than a 20% increase in enrollments. This strategy included nuanced planning for two audiences: parents and school districts, utilizing social media, display, email, and print, with a multilingual focus.
  • Budgeting & Reporting – Managing multiple budgets with responsibilities to grow membership, giving, and a variety of programs comes with challenges. I have a been a successful steward of this budget, while still experiencing growth, by implementing and utilizing marketing research and consumer insights to optimize our ad placement to reach audiences with the highest propensities to engage and communicating with them in a way that speaks to them. Consistently measuring the effectiveness of our efforts and reevaluating when we can improve has allowed the Y to decrease marketing spend while increasing effectiveness.
  • Staff Development – Communication, professional development, and engaging work are the foundation for happy, motivated employees. With every team I have led, it has been my personal mission to encourage growth and create an environment of collaboration, in which each team member is operating to their individual strength. Creating a cohesive, well-accomplished team starts with leadership, and I am committed to the mentorship of and partnership with my team.

This is only an introduction to my work, and I would love the opportunity to share more about my experience and what I can bring to your organization.

With gratitude,
Jennifer Federici
