About the Speaker:

Brenda AZCO

Brenda Marks has more than eighteen years of progressively responsible marketing experience in the construction industry, the past thirteen at AZCO providing marketing resources to an ever-growing company with revenues in excess of $295 million.  Brenda has worked at AZCO through very pivotal times as the company expanded their benefits in the ESOP, through slow construction years, turnaround, the most recent growth and becoming a wholly owned subsidiary to Burns & McDonnell.

 Brenda came to AZCO INC. in 2005 as a Marketing Coordinator with over eight years’ experience in marketing and project organization. She graduated from the University of Wisconsin – Eau Claire with a Bachelor’s Degree in Journalism and English in 1990. After quick find-yourself-in-the-world stints as a nanny on the east coast, and working at a dude ranch in Colorado, Brenda began her more professional career as a legal assistant working for the court system, private attorneys and at Banta in their legal department. Over the years Brenda turned to project organization, marketing, and client services, championing more productive processes in tradeshow coordination, and client qualification information.

 Since her promotion in 2010 to Marketing Manager, Brenda expanded her responsibilities to include keeping the corporate brand consistent, working closely with Business Development and Estimating to manage and execute responses to clients’ requests for qualification, as well as developing corporate and industry marketing materials, writing news releases, managing advertising and editorial calendars, maintaining the website and social media outlets, and creating power point presentations for client presentations.

Over the past twenty years Brenda has served on several committees and boards including Appleton A Better Chance, F.O.C.U.S. STEM with the Appleton Chamber of Commerce, and serving as Secretary/Treasurer of the Winnebago County Bar Association since 1998. Brenda is also a 2010 graduate of Leadership Fox Cities and continues the strong relationships she built with those she met through the program.
