What do you do when a job candidate shows up for her interview in almost identical attire as her would be manager… hire her! Seriously. Obviously the decision was based on more than her outfit; we thought she would be a good fit with our culture, philosophy, and vision. And, so, Miranda joined the Rockland team in February of 2016 as Business Development Manager.
Primarily focusing her energy on East Houston, Galveston and Brazoria counties, she spends most of her time “in the field” marketing the business, networking with current and potential clients, and attending and/or hosting industry events.
“Miranda has been a great addition to our team. Her involvement in the community and industry related organizations really expanded our presence in that market. She’s great at what she does; it seems to come naturally to her,” said Josh Howell, Rockland CFO.
Since starting with Rockland, Miranda has had a handful of personal changes keeping her busy as well- - She got married and had a baby! So many new things for her in 2016; she’s a busy lady, always on the go. We discussed changing her title to Wonder Woman, but then thought about that outfit… hmmm, could be tough to be taken seriously… perhaps we keep her title as is.
Keep an eye out for her bright smile and upbeat personality.
