We’re excited to announce that our team is growing, once again. To help us keep our sanity as we get busier with new business and big projects (yay!), we’ve added a new Account Executive to the REX family. Here’s a little bit about Marilyn!
So who is Marilyn? Tell us a little bit about you, your education and experience.
I was born and raised in Vancouver, BC! I’m currently completing a joint major in Business and Interactive Arts & Technology at Simon Fraser University, focusing on Marketing and Design. Previously, I was a Marketing & Communications Research Assistant for SFU’s entrepreneurship incubator, Coast Capital Savings Venture Connection, and I had the opportunity to help student entrepreneurs grow their ideas into a business.
What do you love most about your career?
Seeing things come to life and helping people achieve their goals. I love being able to help clients understand what they need, what they want and I love seeing how much work goes into creating something successful.
What attracted you to REX?
What REX stands for and their values. I wholeheartedly agree with understanding WHY people do things and WHY people should care. If people care about why a business came to be, it’ll resonate with them and create a lasting connection, which I think is effective!
What is your WHY?
Everyone has a purpose and a reason for why they do things, whether it’s following their passion or having an idea to change the world. Every new business is started with a spark of an idea and my WHY is to help communicate their WHY to their audience.
What do you like about marketing, communications, and design?
I love it because it has the opportunity to impact someone’s life. It’s fascinating to see how marketing has the capability to make someone’s day with a funny advertisement or even influence someone to do something that’ll save their life, like a breast cancer screening. The ability to spread good and influence others is why I love this profession.
What do you want to tell our clients about you?
I will always look out for you and want the best for your brand. I want others to succeed and achieve their goals because that’s just how I am. I’ll listen to what you want, tell you what I think and help you get to your goal. That’s a recipe for success!
