AUDIO VIDEO UNLIMITED ~ VP Branding

Audio Video Unlimited is a national consumer electronics company with more than 90 independently owned franchise store across Canada.

I spent a total of six years at AVU, running the Marketing department and leading a team of designers. The following are a collection of kind words from supervisors, colleagues, team memebers, vendors and franchise store owners.

“Roxane is talented and creative. She made a huge impact on the image of our company, and her “Roxy docs” are a legend at AVU.”

Jim Orr
President
Audio Video Unlimited

“Roxane is a dedicated team player willing to do what it takes to get the job done. She managed a complex portfolio on our team that demanded great care and attention. Her role to smooth out the bumps and maximize delivery of advertising and marketing campaigns and branding initiatives is legendary to this day. She has a "Step Up and Fix it!" attitude when faced with challenges and adversity inherent in the world of marketing. This approach won her the hearts, minds and respect of her colleagues, partners and business network."

"It was a pleasure to work with Roxane and I would welcome the opportunity to do so again in a heartbeat.”

Paul Canty
VP Business Development

“Roxane was a results driven, team player and key member of the Audio Video management team. She was creative, forward thinking and well respected by her direct reports in her role as marketing manager. With our franchise partners, she had real relationships that continued after she left our employment, and it was her relationship skills that helped to contribute to the company’s growth. Roxane is detail orientated and built a reputation for leading edge marketing campaigns. I highly recommend Roxane as a leader, manager and an asset to any company’s team.”

“Roxane's creative style and attention to detail is easy to see. Where I saw Roxane's strength was working with her for over 5 years in a highly entrepreneurial team environment at Audio Video Unlimited. Roxane was always up for the challenge; pushing her own barriers and working outside of her comfort zone to get the job done. A definite asset.”

CLAIRMAIL / MONITISE AMERICAS ~ Best Practice Analyst

Clairmail was a mobile banking software provider based in San Rafael, CA with an impressive portfoio of some of the largest financial institutions in North America. Rated in the Top 3 US mobile banking software companies, Clairmail was aquried by a large UK corporation in June 2012 and became Monitise Americas.

My three years at Clairmail / Monitise was spent in the Adoption department, researching and developing Best Practices and analyzing the competitve lanscape for our clients. The following are a collection of kind words from supervisors, colleagues, and team memebers..

“I worked closely with Roxane for close to 3 years and was always impressed with her dedication and commitment to delivering on time. We had dozens of prospect and customer presentations every quarter and Roxane was KEY to having the right material at the right time. Her work was instrumental in the sales process and was used in front of the largest banks in North America on a regular basis. She lived and breathed mobile banking branding and promotion. I would happily work with Roxane again and highly recommend her!”

Dave Galloway
VP Customer Advocacy
ClairMail / Monitise Americas

“A written recommendation for Roxane is like looking at a pencil drawing of the Mona Lisa. It lacks the true colour, true depth, and true composition of the subject. Now working with Roxane... that's like working alongside Leonardo da Vinci as he painted the Mona Lisa. I marvel at Roxane's creative perspective and her attention to detail. She understands and communicates complex technologies in ways that reflect brilliantly across a wide spectrum of audience – sales, engineering, product development, marketing, and beyond. Staff, customers and partners adore her work. And it will endure in their minds and mine indefinitely.”

Sean Mulvihill

ClairMail / Monitise Americas

"Roxane was a key contributor of one of our customer facing teams that enabled Clairmail and then Monitise to differentiate our offering in a highly competitive market. Roxane's efforts directly contributed to our ability to maintain a market leadership role for the last 5 years. Roxane gathered best practice mobile banking implementation and feature knowledge from across our internal teams and through market research. This information was then utilized by our customers to build their mobile strategy and roadmaps utilizing the market and best practice information delivered by Roxane. She is a great team player and a definite value add for any company looking to build out their mobile strategy and/or perform complex market research."
