Moxxy Marketing Names Leanne Salandro as Project Manager; Karen Nardozza Comments
SALINAS, CA - Moxxy Marketing is taking another step in fortifying its team. Following the addition of Cameron Dolan as Business and Accounting Director just a few short months ago, the marketer now announced the hiring of Leanne Salandro as its new California-based Project Manager.
"I've been looking for just the right fit," said Salandro. "I've functioned on a variety of teams and been involved with many different projects and industries, but, at this point in my career, I've been hungry to find a team where I can focus my experience and still learn and grow. Agriculture is part of my personal history, dear to my heart, so Moxxy is an ideal career scenario for me. I'm excited to be part of creating success for our clients."
In her new role, Salandro will lead marketing initiatives for clients around the globe, as noted in a release.
Salandro began her career in graphic design, working on consumer magazines and retail trade publications where she artfully honed her skills in illustration and design in a high-traffic, deadline-driven atmosphere. She also served as an Art Director for an agency specializing in direct marketing, managing campaigns in the United States and Japan.
When Silicon Valley started heating up in the 90s, Salandro was drawn to digital marketing where she led projects ranging from websites and product launches to packaging design and global product development projects. Before joining Moxxy, she was a business owner and marketing consultant.
Choosing to join Moxxy because of a personal connection to Karen Nardozza, President and Chief Executive Officer, as well as a niche expertise in fresh produce and agriculture, Salandro is well-suited for the position. She grew up on the Western Slope of Colorado on 68 acres of alfalfa fields and went to college at Concordia University in Nebraska where she earned a bachelor's degree in Commercial Art.
"I can buck hay and herd cattle, but I've also launched direct mail campaigns and managed press checks in Tokyo,” Salandro added. “It's a delight to find a role at Moxxy where it all makes perfect sense cohesively."
Nardozza commented on the recent appointment, explaining what makes Salandro the perfect fit for Moxxy.
"Moxxy's brand promise has always included providing attentive, expert support to our clients on every project, every step of the way," she said. "Leanne's decades of marketing and design expertise across a range of industries both domestically and internationally, along with her outgoing personality and connection to agribusiness and fresh produce, make her a smart, strategic addition to the team."
Congratulations to Leanne Salandro on this exciting new role!
