Jean Ferrari is an enthusiastic member of AWM NYC who brings tremendous energy and insights to our event planning and scholarship committee. She brings her friends and colleagues to our events and has been an integral part of our scholarship committee, helping to identify the most important features of strong applicants. We feature Jean this month as a member who knows what it means to get involved in a group that she feels brings value to her career.
Jean says, “I really like being a member of AWM NYC because I find the programming really interesting. I always take away a few things and then put it to use in my job and life. Being with other women in a non-competitive, supportive environment is worth my time which is why I stay involved.”
Jean brings 25 years of broadcast marketing experience to AWM. Jean launched her career as a spot radio assistant and has focused primarily in the national audio arena. Throughout her career, she has worked with A-Listers like Ryan Seacrest, Rush Limbaugh and Steve Harvey.
Jean has developed and executed engaging, multi-platform marketing solutions for national brands that include Coke, Kohl’s and Sudafed. She is an award winning sales person, who has been recognized for her excellence in sales and her ability to generate non-traditional revenue. A seasoned veteran, she has worked at Premiere Networks for the past 13 years. “My job can be tough but it's never boring! If I'm out of the office one day, I'm never sure what to expect when I return. The industry is always evolving so, to remain competitive, I never stop growing professionally and I do my best to stay ahead of the curve.” Jean has exceeded sales goals year after year living by the motto “The harder you work, the luckier you get.”
Jean graduated from Providence College with a BS in Business. She lives in New York with her husband Bob.
