Please accept my outstanding recommendation of Marilyn Reyes Burrows as you consider her for employment. Marilyn reported to me in my role as Vice President of Marketing for Frontier Communications and was an asset to our team as we moved through the transition from Verizon to Frontier.Specific calls outs include:
Leadership – Marilyn is a dynamic and strategic thinker. She communicates well across her teammates, agency partners, stakeholders and senior management and motivates all with her passion for excellence and achieving objectives.
Marketing Expertise – Marilyn has a broad breadth of marketing and communications experience and a keen understanding of the importance of developing a strong strategy to maximize messaging, creative and tactical implementation. Combined with her extensive industry knowledge, Marilyn was one of the key players on my team. Her elective decision to take a retirement package is a significant loss to the organization.
Bottom-line, if I had an opportunity to re-hire Marilyn, there would be no question that I would want her on my team.
This is a recommendation for Marilyn Reyes Burrows. I had the privilege to work with Marilyn for the past 2 years. Marilyn reported to me in my role from October 2014 to November 2016 at which time she elected to take a retirement package from Frontier Communications. She was an outstanding employee and her departure was a loss to our team and the company.
Marilyn’s 29 years of marketing experience was a huge asset to our organization. Combined with her extensive industry knowledge, Marilyn was one of the key players on my team. She is a dynamic and strategic thinker and through her efforts we were able to Go-To-Market using marketing intelligence that helped us lead in the marketplace. Marilyn is able to demonstrate her leadership skills to influence all levels of the business and her passion for marketing, excellence and achieving objectives shows in everything she does.
If I had an opportunity to re-hire Marilyn, there would be no question that I would want her on my team.
Marilyn was one of my key go-to managers not just at GTE, but a lifetme member of my "All Star" team in the 30+ years that I have been in the workforce and management. She simply gets it done, and that's high praise. She executes without fail. She requires minimal supervision. I was very lucky when my manager suggested moving her to my group. She is an amazing asset.
Marilyn has always been passionate, knowledgeable and organized in her work. She demonstrates outstanding professionalism with her team, as well as to the industry she is promoting her products or services in. A great team leader and player, Marilyn has always been the best at what she does, and she will make any company she is associated with highly successful.
Marilyn is that rare combination of talented, skilled professional that understands marketing and sales that ensures the success of her team by knowing the business and truly caring for her people. All too often in business you run across a professional whose main focus is 'me' and only 'me'. Marilyn runs counter to any thought of 'me' -- she is focused on the team and ensuring that every individual on her team has the opportunity to contribute and shine. It was a privilege to work on her team in my time at Verizon, she made us better, she made me a better professional -- and I learned all I needed to know about how to be a leader from Marilyn.
Marilyn was one of my first mentors (and bosses) and has helped me in so many ways professionally! She's a true marketing and PR expert who always finds a way to lift campaigns to new levels through her innovative thinking and communications skills. She just has a knack! Verizon has been VERY fortunate to have her on its team through the years, and I'd join any of her teams or projects today - no questions asked!
Marilyn’s marketing expertise has been an asset to me as I launched my new business. From high-level strategic direction and branding, to pushing for my best ROI, to the nitty gritty like copywriting, customer testimonials and establishing a professional business and web presence, it’s like having a marketing team as an extension to my medical staff.
I’ve known Marilyn a long time. So when I was developing my Titletracs business she was the first person I called and asked to join my team as my Chief Marketing Officer. Whether you’re establishing a brand new online business, as I was, or you’re with a bricks and mortar Fortune 500 company, Marilyn brings a wealth of marketing and public relations experience to the table. She knows to ask the critical questions and the importance of strategic marketing intelligence and planning. I highly recommend her.
I am the owner and president of a small boutique IT consulting company, and Marilyn has been very effective and supportive in helping me expand my business. Her knowledge of when to apply which marketing technique to achieve the desired results has been very impressive. With Marilyn's help I have been able to expand my business by almost 25% in a few months. I definitely recommend her!
