'10, BA, Business Administration, Marketing
Nicholas' business career has taken off strongly. After graduation, he left his job at a financial firm to do what he loves: marketing. As a Project Coordinator, he works with a variety of clients to ensure their projects are moved to and through the various departments of Maumee-based integrated marketing communications firm Hart.
Nicholas credits his external and internal opportunities the Lourdes College of Business & Leadership afforded him for helping him to achieve his current position with Hart. "While at Lourdes, I had the opportunity to be part of a variety of projects such as the Do It Now College Challenge. Throughout my education, I became involved with Toledo area businesses and networking groups, which ultimately led me to meet some of my current co-workers. Having that extra push to become involved in the community, through the Business & Leadership program, was a positive experience and allowed me to meet and interact with area business leaders."
As a marketing professional, Nicholas offers this advice to current students: "In today's marketing industry, it's important to have an understanding of all areas of marketing communications. Not only should one have a particular area of interest or specialty, but rather an understanding of all areas of marketing. This not only impacts the professional, personally, but ultimately impacts the company or customer being served."
