Web-based compliant valuation management software provider Global DMS has announced that Jody Collup, the company's VP of marketing, is a recipient of the prestigious Women of Distinction award from the Providence Business Journal.
Women were selected for the PBJ's Women of Distinction award for their contributions to taking business to the next level in the Greater Philadelphia area. In all, 31 women received the award in 2014 and were chosen from a variety of fields, including banking, healthcare, real estate, and others.
"We had numerous high-quality applications for Women of Distinction this year, and my only regret is that we couldn’t honor more," said Craig Ey, editor-in-chief of the PBJ. "This year’s class of winners embodies all of what makes the Philadelphia region great. They are talented, passionate about what they do and committed to personal, professional and community success."
Collup is well-respected by her peers for her accomplished marketing career, which has spanned more than 20 years and includes experience in marketing strategy, branding, public relations, advertising, client communications, website management, trade shows, competitive analysis, project management, and social medial marketing. Prior to joining Global DMS, she served as director of marketing for Calyx for six years and as product development marketing manager for the American Heart Association for six years.
She joined Global DMS, which is headquartered in Lansdale, Pennsylvania, as the VP of marketing in January 2013 and is responsible for creating and executing the company's full-scale marketing platform. She oversees all initiatives and campaigns for the Global DMS marketing department and ensures that the marketing platform is aligned with the company's growth and stability goals.
"I’m flattered to receive this prominent local area award from the Philadelphia Business Journal,” Collup said. "Today’s fast-moving business environment is challenging to operate in no matter what industry you are in, and it’s great that each year women who are making a difference are acknowledged in the community with this esteemed accolade."
