Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 17, 2012
Social media agency Maximize Social Media LLC announced today that it has named Julie Stern Wills as its Senior Vice President. Stern Wills recently obtained her M.B.A. from the Yale School of Management, with a concentration in marketing. She will lead the company’s online advertising management division with a focus on Facebook advertising.
Stern Wills began her career in the real estate industry, as an investor, and later became Director of Real Estate Consulting & Customer Service at House Hunt, a national online start-up based in California. There, she merged her early expertise in SEO and real estate background to develop intensive training programs covering online lead generation, business development, and Internet marketing strategies. Her greatest satisfaction derived from coaching these REALTORs nationwide, watching them significantly increase their visibility, commissions and the level of service delivered.
Thoroughly experienced with start-up businesses, Julie appreciates the challenges facing entrepreneurs. Whether the constraints are budget-related, inefficient processes, misaligned business and marketing strategies, Julie loves helping clients devise company direction and coaching them in its implementation. Over the last four years, Julie helped grow a pet healthcare company with virtually no online visibility to one with a profitable national presence (and now a subsidiary of PETCO).
Julie pursued her undergraduate studies at the University of Michigan, where she graduated Summa Cum Laude and Phi Beta Kappa. Later, she earned her M.B.A. from Yale School of Management, with a concentration in marketing.
Stern Wills said, “I am honored to be selected as the Senior Vice President of Maximize Social Media, a major nationally-recognized firm focused on helping businesses harness the power of social media to grow their organizations and better serve their customers.”
Chris McLaughlin, CEO of Maximize Social Media LLC, said, “We’re excited to have Julie on our team. Her experience with start-ups, not to mention her focus at Yale on marketing, will be invaluable to our clients. She has a passion for social media and we couldn’t be happier to have her work with us.”
Stern Wills commented, “I am especially proud to be a part of a dynamic company that sees the importance of helping small to mid-sized businesses market ‘smarter’ to exceed their goals. The awesome power of social media gives today’s entrepreneurs that incredible opportunity – and we are here to make sure they ‘maximize’ it!”
“I am especially proud to be a part of that progress,” she noted.
