Brielle

I moved to Raleigh, North Carolina to work for Cisco Systems as a Partner Relations Manager/Customer Contract Manager.

After graduating in May 2014 with a bachelor's degree in Digital Media/Broadcast Production and a minor in Business, I moved to Raleigh, North Carolina to work for Cisco Systems. I am a Partner Relations Manager/Customer Contract Manager for Cisco Capital Enterprise. My primary responsibilities include reconciling deals in lease/loan systems, maintaining relationships with Partners and Customers to ensure satisfaction, and overall coordinating the financial agreements and bonds for Cisco's top customers. Cisco also provides many opportunities to complete my personal and professional goals. Recently, I was selected to produce a documentary for the Global Engagement Management Team and will be traveling this winter. The most unique aspect of the production will be interviewing team members in territories such as Singapore and England.

Marywood has thoroughly prepared me for this position. The University emphasizes the importance of the mission in every student through various leadership opportunities, smaller class sizes, and the hands-on learning approach. I'd have to say the most significant part of my Marywood degree was empowering me to network and connect with alum and ultimately meet one of my greatest mentors in corporate America. This ingenuity has helped me become the leader I am today, and I cannot thank the faculty, staff, and administrators enough for being great motivators.
