APR 2013 - DEC 2016
My duties included overseeing all retail operations, maintaining inventory levels, monitoring and submitting payroll, scheduling, interviewing and hiring of employees, and ensuring a high level of satisfactory customer service. During my time at New Leaf, upper management saw fit for me to manage a total of 3 different stores, each of which were new brick and mortar locations, because of the success of the stores where I had previously managed. During this time, I brokered a sponsorship deal between Cox Radio and New Leaf Vapor Company to sponsor The Big Ticket and First Coast Music Fest in 2014, two major music festivals, for the means of corporate promotion. This sponsorship package helped New Leaf Vapor Company grow from an upstart company to the largest and most successful electronic cigarette company in the region in under one year. Because of my marketing successes, the owner asked me to relocate to Kennesaw, GA to manage and promote the company’s newest location in November 2015. I helped New Leaf Vapor Company expand into the Atlanta market, which I gladly did until my departure in December 2016.
