Valerie Ward

Senior Sales Project Manager

What are your duties and responsibilities at Cushing?
I am the Senior Marketing Coordinator at Cushing and have been with the company for over 6 years. My responsibilities include producing targeted marketing materials, proposals and presentations while networking and actively participating in client-based organizations. I create and manage our Cross Media Marketing campaigns, email campaigns and case studies while assisting with updating the company website, social media, etc.

How would a Cushing client describe working with you?
That I’m responsive, dependable, and always smiling!

What is your favorite part of Chicagoland?
I love the West Loop. It’s fascinating to see new development taking place: all the new restaurants, bars, cafes and shopping with cultural and historical influences nearby such as Greek town and Little Italy. All the new developments pay homage to its history and neighborhoods by not just throwing up shiny new buildings and massive plazas. Also summertime Chicago is the best–there’s always something going on.
