Legion has accomplished several fulfilling goals so far in 2014. We’re continuing our efforts in delivering interactive programs for our brands that allow our clients to break into new markets. Throughout our great achievements this year, we realize the true recognition goes to our team members. It is for this reason that our team brings us great pride when they reach their career goals with the company.
One of our most recent success stories is that of our colleague Laura Martinez who was just recently promoted to Assistant Manager. Laura is a California Bay Area native, having been born and raised in Antioch. A graduate from the University of California, Irvine with a Bachelor’s Degree in business administration and marketing, she finds that her greatest motivation is her family. Laura is a first generation born US citizen and comes from two loving parents born in Mexico. Watching her father thrive in the business world from true dedication and hard work has inspired her to go after her goals.
When asked how her education benefited her work she simply said,
“I actually learned a lot more within this company than I did in school […] it sounds funny but my experiences day-to-day are what impact me the most.”
Laura continued with her experience stating that confidence and communication was the best skill that she harnessed with Legion
“I can walk into any room and demand that attention, I’m not sure I would have been able to do that before my experience here,” she said.
Laura began her career with Legion in September 2013. Learning of its focus in both marketing and sports, she felt it was a perfect fit for her career goals and personal interests. The constant challenges and continuous growth opportunities have helped Laura to thrive within the industry as she noted,
“The harder you work, the more you will get out of it.”
Thank you Laura for all of your hard work and congratulations on your promotion! We expect great things from you!
