I was so honored to be among an elite group of women who have followed their passions and found success.
San Jose, CA (PRWEB) February 28, 2013
Emmy award winner Marlo Thomas, star of the hit television show, “That Girl,” National Outreach Director for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and owner of the popular web series, “It Ain’t Over” in The Huffington Post, recently featured Annette Giacomazzi, Founder of CastCoverZ!. The series features women who have reinvented their careers, found new passions and reinvigorated their dreams after the age of 40. The article also landed CastCoverZ! on the front page of AOL.com. CastCoverZ! manufactures cast covers, orthopedic accessories and distributes waterproof and other comfort products.
Giacomazzi said, “I was so honored to be among an elite group of women who have followed their passions and found success.” Journalist Lori Weiss, in coordination with Marlo Thomas, captured the essence of CastCoverZ! by writing about Giacomazzi and her company in the piece titled, “Her Daughter’s Broken Arm Became Mom’s Lucky Break.” The feature illustrated how the execution of Giacomazzi’s “A-ha!” moment created a thriving company and thriving it is. Realizing a 300% gain, 2012 over 2011, with similar results the year before, CastCoverZ! is the global leader in the orthopedic comfort and accessories industry. That growth allowed them to purchase LemonAid Designer Crutches and CrutchWear® in 2012 to better serve their customers. Giacomazzi shared one of the secrets to her success, “We believe there’s nothing that builds success more than customer referrals and testimonials. To receive those you have to have easy, one-stop shopping and dazzling customer service. Our customers and fans rave that CCZ! is a Made-in-the-USA company where they can find a broad array of products, depth of fabric options, comfort products, and have easy access to cheerful customer service gurus.”
Unique to the “It Ain’t Over” series are a stream of candid photos embedded in each story. Giacomazzi shared, “That was pure delight. Some of the CastCoverZ! team got to ham it up in the photographs.” One of the photographs has become Giacomazzi’s personal favorite, “The CastCoverZ! customer service department had the opportunity to wrap themselves up in their favorite fabric. Their personalities really came out and so did mine!”
