Talent + Work Ethic + Humility + Humor = Success.
This ultimate recipe for professional success is uncommon to find in most individuals, yet, at M Marketing Inc it’s how we would describe our entire team. An especially bright and rising star at our company, Nikki Villaire, embodies these characteristics in such a manner we had to make her February’s Featured Team Member!
Born and raised in Haverhill, MA (just ask her how to pronounce this city!), Nikki grew up with skis on her feet by the time she could walk! A combination of the New England snow, her father’s skiing expertise, and years of holidays at ski resorts led Nikki to begin skiing competitively and downhill racing with her high school team all across the Northeast. Despite being terrified of heights (also ask about her chair lift experiences, ha!) she persevered and pushed herself out of comfort zones one race at a time.
With a desire to explore more of the country and move out of Massachusetts, Nikki toured the University of Delaware after high school and instantly fell in love with the campus. 4 years, 5 changes of studies and 1 hard-earned major in English professional writing, she graduated wide-eyed and ready to take on the world! With experience in copyrighting and social media management, Nikki moved to DC after graduation with hopes of finding her next adventure involving corporate communications. It was then she stumbled upon a job opening for M Marketing Inc.
Starting first in our company’s Management Training Program, Nikki invested 5 months with the marketing/sales team learning about the energy client, the business to business sales acquisitions, and team/leadership development. Due to her overall personality, skill-set and career goals, she was offered a full-time position in January as a Human Resources Recruiter, now responsible for helping spearhead the talent scouting and onboarding of new recruits!
When we asked Nikki what made her accept the HR position and move into a new department, she talked about how excited she was to have a more direct impact on people’s futures and career growth. Her deep appreciation and relationships with the marketing/sales team have kept her grounded and able to recruit Gaithersburg’s best talent into M Marketing Inc. It is because of Nikki’s diligence and goal-oriented nature that our company just expanded into Chicago last month!
When she’s not working, you can find her hanging out with colleagues, binge-watching The Office and Parks & Recreation, or exploring DC. Her easy-going personality and positive nature make her the ultimate addition to our company’s culture, and it is with her passion that we plan to expand to an additional 2 cities this year.
