NJFX hires Emily Newman as Marketing and Public Relations Coordinator
April 1, 2022
Wall, NJ – NJFX announces Emily Newman as our in-house Marketing and Public Relations Coordinator. Previously, she worked with various clients on projects that span from digital marketing, graphic design, and web development.
We are thrilled to have Ms. Newman’s fresh perspective and her creative approach to connecting with our community of network operators. We took our time in finding the right fit for someone to join our team with a combination of enthusiasm, professionalism, and polish to represent our brand at NJFX said Gil Santaliz, CEO of NJFX.
The entire team at NJFX is excited to accompany Emily Newman on the journey to learn the dynamic subsea industry and build a powerful foundation for her and other young women in the infrastructure space. It was only 7 years ago when I transitioned from the Financial Services industry to NJFX and I see the passion Emily brings to our team and desire to be part of our industry, shared Felix Seda our GM. Felix has been a leader in our industry for Diversity and Inclusion and getting the next generation ready for new leadership roles recognized by his participation with PTC and the Suboptic in these efforts.
Ms. Newman graduated from Wagner College in Staten Island with a degree in Arts Administration and Marketing. She credits her studies with sparking her interest in digital media and marketing which led her to NJFX.
“I am always looking for new challenges to educate myself on topics I am not familiar with,” Ms. Newman talks about how the telecommunication industry is a new and exciting venture she looks forward to exploring.
The move from web development to public relations has proven to be exciting for Ms. Newman. “In web development, it is normally me working alone with little communication. However, in the subsea industry, there is a huge emphasis on networking, continuous partnerships, and opportunities to learn from industry leaders.”
“As a young woman, I find this to be a massive motivator than a challenge to learn quickly from others and stand out as a leader in a male dominated field,” Ms. Newman explains how being a woman often makes her a minority in many of these conferences and at the office.
Ms. Newman has traveled with NJFX to Capacity LATAM and met many prominent women in the telecom industry and will use future opportunities to develop professional and personal relationships.
Say hello to Emily Newman at ITW, May 9 – 12, in Washington, DC.
