7/01 to Present

FEMC, Bedford Heights, OH
Marketing and Communications Coordinator. FEMC is a multi-million dollar manufacturer of high-speed packaging equipment whose international customers are among the world's largest and best known. Formerly known as Food Equipment Manufacturing Corporation, this is the same company that I worked for from 8/86 to 1/90.

  • Reponsible for design, layout and placement of all media communications.

  • Coordinate tradeshow presence.

  • Provide point of contact and interface with clients on large projects.

  • Graphic Design and Technical Writing support for all facets of company.

  • Video editing and multimedia scripting in support of FEMC's online presence and interactive catalog.

  • Webmaster of the FEMC-Online website.

Since arriving in August of 2001 and suffering through the horrible 4th Quarter economic environment caused by the events of 9-11-01, FEMC has seen a tremendous turnaround in 2002. FEMC eclipsed total sales for 2001 in the first three months of 2002 and we look forward to a banner year in which gross sales for 2002 should more than triple that of 2001. While I cannot claim personal responsibility for the increase in sales, I would like to propose that I, at least, had a part. What I can claim is that our media placements and targeted promotional campaigns have increased client inquiries and website traffic at levels mirroring the increase in sales.
