When I interviewed Candice McNamara for VIEO's business development director several years ago, she said her dream job would be to work for Google. We both laughed and agreed that for many in our industry, especially us data nerds, a job with Google would be hard to pass up. So, although we're sad to see Candice leave our VIEO family, we're thrilled that she just achieved her career dream: a job in her hometown of NYC with Google Marketing Solutions, Google, Inc.
In her new role as a Senior Marketing Consultant, Candice will leverage her growth-driven marketing expertise to provide recommended advertising opportunities for Google Marketing Solutions' mid-market segment. When asked about the role VIEO has played in helping her land a job with Google, Candice said:
"VIEO Design is a wonderful playground full of innovation, growth, and big ideas. A launchpad to my career, VIEO allowed me the autonomy to develop custom strategies, methodologies, and increased my knowledge base in technical selling. VIEO is a tech-savvy, motivated, do-gooder’s organization."
Before she headed North, we enjoyed some craft brews as a team in downtown Knoxville, TN and talked about the old times, office pranks, and things to come.
In preparation for her move, Candice worked closely with her right-hand man, Mitch Transue, to ensure a smooth transition for VIEO's business development department. "I have full confidence that the agency will continue in its personal and clients’ success especially with the leadership and guidance of its Business Development Manager, Mitchell Transue," Candice said.
