“I have been successful in managing my extensive portfolio of marketing efforts because I’ve had exceptional support from our engineering team, project management and service organizations,” says Simonetti. “Additionally, I’ve been fortunate to align with an effective external network of marketing communications support teams. I will always be grateful to the many people in the industry who helped me along over the years.”
