AND NOW THE MOMENT WE HAVE ALL BEEN WAITING FOR.
You never think that you can love Ohio University more than you already do until you hear a fellow bobcat and alum speak. At this past Monday’s PRSSA meeting we were lucky enough to hear the words of Liz Fiorino, Ohio University 2009 Scripps graduate.
Liz Fiorino is the Regional Marketing Director at Covelli Enterprises, AKA Panera Bread!
Since graduation Liz has worked for MARC USA. A main client she dealt with was the Rite Aid Corporation where she worked on the account management team.
Currently at Panera Liz deals with just about everything including business development, media planning, and creative direction.
Liz deals a lot with community partnerships and cause marketing throughout the year on many products, an example being the Books on the Bus Partnership.
Involvement in the Panera 2.0 Launch has also been a big part of Liz’s job. Through this, she has been responsible for improving customer experiences through the use of technology. Liz was able to work hands on with the launch of the Panera Bread loyalty card.
