Jess (French) Willis is a mom of three under four, a wife, and a Bon Jovi fan who does marketing. (in that order). She's been leading marketing teams and tactics for over 15 years and is currently responsible for the global marketing strategy for Pitney Bowes Data. Prior to that she served as the director of marketing for Maponics where, in addition to learning all sorts of interesting things about data, she worked with some of the most intelligent, humble and lovely people you could ask for.
She has held senior leadership positions in marketing across software and data, automotive, insurance & finance, and health and fitness, including past positions at Wegmann Automotive, John Hancock and World Gym. While she has realized many personal and professional successes in that time, her former 10-year-old self is most impressed with the fact that she has reached the point in her career where she is on a first name basis with a sticker vendor and a cartoonist. She also likes that she gets to wear one of those super cool wireless mics when she gives presentations for large groups.
Jess holds a BA from Emerson College and has served on several boards of Directors including the American Marketing Association: Nashville, where she served for three years across event planning and social media, as well as the Nashville Chapter of Women in Financial Services, where she served as President.
She currently resides in Vermont with her husband and three children where she spends most months wishing the snow would melt, but sincerely enjoys the 23 days of nice weather that New England offers up each year.
Jess likes to write, likes to laugh, likes to motivate and encourage others, and enjoys doing good, solid work.
