Marketing & PR Manager, D-Tools, Inc.
Jill is a dynamic, vibrant innovator of cutting-edge PR and communications activities for D-Tools of Concord, Calif. D-Tools is a worldwide leader in system design software. Since Jill works for a service-based organization—not a product-based company like electronics or speakers—her effectiveness is dependent solely on her ability to identify and coordinate her clients’ needs with the opportunities afforded by D-Tools’ offerings. This requires imagination, creativity, and a thorough knowledge and understanding of today’s—and tomorrow’s—communications landscape, including Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.
Jill is constantly active in reaching out to the industry, anticipating her customers’ requirements with new programs and events. It’s this kind of inventive communications approach that will serve our industry to its best advantage in the coming years. www.d-tools.com
