Rosemary Tambini | Director of Multimedia Marketing | Makers Nutrition | Hauppauge, New York, United States | Healthcare, Pharmaceuticals, Biotech, Health Products & Services | After graduating from Stony Brook University in 2017, I pursued a job that involved writing and media. After months of interviewing at several companies and not finding where I belonged, I decided to reach out to local organizations, showcasing my academic knowledge and appetite to learn. The one individual who reached back out to me via phone is now my General Manager and the Executive Vice President of Makers Nutrition, Steve Finnegan. There now almost three years, I have come a long way. I started at the company’s first ever media coordinator, putting to use my social media and writing skills. Last year I was proudly promoted to Director of Multimedia Marketing. I have found my work family and yes, exactly where I belong. I have learned so much from Steve and CEO Jason Provenzano about not only the vitamin and supplement industry, but the art of manufacturing and beauty in customer service. I have so much respect for Makers Nutrition and would be happy to help guide and recognize our peers in the 2020 Pillar World Awards.
