Jennifer Giralo, marketing coordinator at Archer Western Construction, was recently honored with the Association of Proposal Management Professionals’ 2016 APMP Future Leader Award.
Part of APMP Arizona’s Valley of the Sun Chapter, Jennifer has been in the A/E/C industry for five years. She has a passion for inclusive company culture and celebrates diverse teams. Her workshop, Yes, And: Three Improv Concepts to Inspire Thought Leadership, is tailored to help A/E/C marketing professionals position themselves as leaders.
This interactive workshop has been enjoyed by the Society of Marketing Professional Services (SMPS) Arizona, CO+HOOTS collaborative work space, the Southern Arizona Architects and Engineers Marketing Association, Engineering News-Record Groundbreaking Women in Construction Conference, and the APMP Bid and Proposal Con.
Giralo is also an advocate for recruiting students to pursue careers in A/E/C marketing.
“I’ve always been intrigued by mindfulness and awareness,” she said. “What I love about the A/E/C industry is how mindful it keeps me. I don’t walk past things like buildings, bridges, structures, or parks anymore without thinking of the people who brought this innovation to life.”
