Prudential Financial

April 12, 2010

In 2008, I joined Prudential Financial as its Vice President of Institutional Marketing for the Institutional Marketing Strategic Solutions Group. Prudential Financial was founded in 1875 in Newark, New Jersey, as “The Widows and Orphans Friendly Society” by the United States Senator John F. Dryden. Today, Prudential Financial is a Fortune Global 500 company with subsidiaries in the insurance, investment management, and financial product spheres. Prudential Financial’s products include life insurance, annuities, mutual funds, pension investments, retirement investments, asset management, securities brokerage, and real estate. Prudential Financial’s Rock of Gibraltar logo is one of the most famous corporate logos worldwide and was originated by an advertising agent passing by Laurel Hill, a volcanic neck, on a train in New Jersey. Since its inception, Prudential Financial has received a number of honors and awards. Every year since 2003, Prudential Financial has received a 100 percent rating on the Corporate Equality Index, which is released annually by the Human Rights Campaign. The magazine Working Mothers named Prudential Financial one of the 100 Best Companies for Working Mothers, and the corporation was featured on Business Week’s 2008 list of The Best Places to Launch a Career. The corporation’s charitable arm, The Prudential Foundation, donated over $450,000 in Prudential CARES Volunteer Grants to nonprofit organizations around the world in 2007. As Vice President of Institutional Marketing, I maintained critical client and consultant relationships and researched vital quantitative and qualitative information necessary to both manage and strengthen these relationships. Continually seeking out potential business opportunities, I kept abreast of the critical issues facing our industry and any innovations that would prove to be an asset to Prudential Financial. I am honored to have served a historic company that continues to champion progressive social and political action.
