Meet Paula! Chief Revenue Officer at Fiplex Communications!
Describe your role & what you love about it.
My role entails driving better integration and alignment between all revenue-related functions, including marketing, sales, customer support, pricing, and revenue management. I love the ability I have to mentor young professionals in the industry, as well as, share my experience and help the team move the ball forward. It is so rewarding to be able to give back.
How have other women inspired you or helped shape your career?
Through my thirty some years in the industry most of my mentors have been male. However, there have been a few women who inspired me to push forward and encouraged me to pursue my goals. Italia Commisso Weinand was the first to encourage me to join WICT and influence my future as a female leader. Over the years leadership courses and other WICT members such as Connie Keith and Kristine Faulkner continued to support, encourage and mentor me.
What is something that most people don’t know about you?
Several years ago I went back to school and became a certified international nutrional health coach as a result of a personal physical challenge. Since then I have written a book on Nutrition and Travel and have an active practice in addition to my role in the telecommunications industry.
Why do you think WICT is important?
WICT has been exceptional for the networking, relationships, and the friendships made over the years that continually prove invaluable. In addition, the training courses are extremely beneficial for new professionals and the experienced alike.
