For 5 years, I've been developing and managing economic development and education based programs for rural Sierra Leone with The Village Link, a U.S. 501(c)3 organization. I am responsible for developing and managing TVL's core programs, partnerships and fundraising.
The foundation of my career is in marketing and advertising. I have experience working with global brands such as Microsoft, Samsung, and Wonder Bread across multiple platforms including: product launches, digital/interactive, social media, SEO, web development, promotions (online / offline), Olympic sponsorship, traditional, retail and events. In my last marketing role as Canada's National Brand Manager for the national lottery brands, I managed a $29M budget with a $3.4B sales target.
I am passionate about photography and use this skill to support The Village Link fundraising efforts and run a small business in my free time. You can see some of my work at www.crossignol.com.... [more]
