Business Development and Marketing Manager
- Spokane, WA
April is a marketing and business development lead spearheading marketing activities nationally for GeoEngineers’ West and Pipelines Business Units. She says that marketing is all about connecting people, building relationships and finding creative ways to promote the awesome work we are doing in each of the communities we live, work and play. To connect with the business community, April is very active in several national and regional marketing and industry organizations, including the Spokane-CDA Women in Transportation Seminar Chapter, OneAEC and Society of Marketing Professional Services, to name a few.
Energetic and versatile, April tackles everything from business development and outreach to internal marketing campaigns. She works with GeoEngineers’ technical leads to pursue business development campaigns, foster strong client relationships, and propose teams whose experience and capabilities best fit the client’s needs.
Asked about her role, April replied, “It’s the strategic conversations, relationship building, and constant variety that excite me. Working together, we have the greatest opportunity to anticipate the needs of our clients and colleagues and find ways to advocate for them and their projects. It’s incredibly fulfilling to be able to help others on their business development and marketing needs on a daily basis.”
Connecting people is as important to April in her free time as it is at work. She, her husband and three children love to entertain and often have friends over for good food and game nights. When she’s not busy with her family or church community, April enjoys working out, playing sports and spending time outdoors. She’s also famously passionate about Starbucks coffee and loves connecting with folks over a cup of coffee.
