Job Description

As a Marketing Regional Director, I am responsible for customer relationship building, establishing preference for Boeing commercial aircraft and capturing value (price) during sales activities. In executing these responsibilities I work closely with airline leadership from various technical and operational areas to support with aircraft data and marketing materials that highlight the advantages of Boeing aircraft.

Mentoring Objectives & Scope

I am open to most topics (career, education, etc.). In my experience, mentoring sessions work best when you come prepared with a specific question or topic you would like to discuss during our meetings. My experience is heavily skewed toward Boeing so interest in aviation is a plus.

When and where do you hold meetings with your students?

Mornings or evenings and weekends. I'm open to anywhere from Renton (near office) to Seattle (near home) including campus and the surrounding area.
