Mission-Driven Marketing Direction & Digital Strategy
The mission of the Central Jersey Blood Center is to save lives by providing a safe an adequate supply of blood to NJ’s hospitals. When I arrived they were losing over 10,000 donors a year, and by the time I left they were gaining more than 25,000. As Marketing Director, I managed all the digital media and marketing for the organization. Oversaw a $2 million budget, four-person team, brand strategy, media planning, donor communications and recruitment. Successfully led the marketing of the organization towards an acquisition by a larger healthcare consortium.
