Before digital media, Miriam had a highly successful 20-year career in apparel sales and inventory management as a national account manager for Vanity Fair, a division of VF Corporation, one of the largest apparel companies in the US. She was responsible for up to $18 million in annual sales for brands including Vanity Fair, Nike Inneractives, and Eileen West to the nation’s leading retailers including Lord & Taylor, Bloomingdales, and Macy’s. She was a data-driven marketer before the term became cool. Sales gains were directly attributable to data-driven analysis, planning, and tactical execution of multi-million dollar programs, and team collaboration.
Having a background in sales and account management has allowed Miriam to excel in eCommerce and digital media, and paid search in particular, where selection and price paid drive returns. It’s all about results, setting goals and working diligently to reach them.
In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her two boys, family, and friends at home and abroad. She is a proud supporter and advocate for children with special needs, and has served on numerous boards in the community advocating for educational and recreational opportunities for all.
