In Her Words
“When I meet people who want to know about what I do for a living, they sometimes have an idea that a CIO is someone who leads a department responsible for supporting the operations of a company – an executive over a group of professionals who are busy resetting passwords, installing software etc. While our group certainly handles many of those things, our primary focus is to deliver on the promise of technology – to make life a little easier, to make us all more efficient, and solve tough problems. It helps us adapt in an ever-changing world. The direct mail industry is currently undergoing a significant change where digital media is influencing the way marketing campaigns, including direct mail marketing campaigns, are handled. This means that as a company, Mspark must stand apart as innovators in this industry using quality data and analytics, as well as implementing the best possible technology solutions to better address the growing needs of our clients.”
Jamie is adventurous and has a passion for trying new things. At the beginning of every year, she establishes goals for herself and strives to accomplish those goals by year-end. Over the past year, she has traveled to two new countries, skied on Aspen Mountain, and learned the sport of cycling. She is also an avid runner, because she says running has a wonderful way of clearing her head after a busy day.
