Elena Barker is a client relationship manager at Pearl Marketing & Design. We want to showcase our employees so you know that you are working with a team of industry experts who love helping you reach your marketing goals.
What are the top skills of a client relationship manager? Leadership, desire to learn, communication and results driven. These skills are inherent in Elena and why Amanda Schneck, president of Pearl Marketing & Design hired her last year.
At Pearl Marketing & Design, our marketing team takes a holistic approach to marketing. There is no cookie cutter approach to any client.
“One of the reasons I love working at Pearl Marketing & Design is that there is no ‘typical’ day,” Elena said.
“We run our business based off of relationships with our clients and provide them with the marketing tools that best suit their business’ needs.”
As Client Relationship Manager, every relationship is different, so it makes every day different.
Getting to know the business owners and what makes their businesses tick is like getting to know the heartbeat of your community. ~Elena Barker
Each day Elena spends time on the phone talking to new and existing clients, responding to emails, and visiting clients and their business.
Top on her list of daily tasks include meeting with a new client, touring a business location or being on-site for a video shoot.
“Every day is new and exciting at Pearl Marketing & Design!”
Elena’s favorite part of being a client relationship manager is meeting and working with local business owners and overseeing their projects.
“If their businesses are thriving, then the community as a whole is thriving. Getting to know the business owners and what makes their businesses tick is like getting to know the heartbeat of your community, and I’ve learned a lot about that since I started working for Pearl Marketing & Design. Community is everything to me, so being able to have a role at a company that values community so much and allows me to be out and about in it is certainly a blessing.”
