Title: Marketing Specialist
I’ve been at Great-West Life for 6 years. I started as a Communications Specialist for group retirement services. Basically, I was writing content for advisors, employers or group retirement plan members. Then I became a Marketing Specialist. Then a new business area opened up called digital services and I became a Marketing Specialist for that area. Last year I was a product specialist for Digital Services. After the company’s massive re-organization, I am back in Group Retirements Services as a Marketing Specialist. I focus solely on member communications – the communications that an employee would receive about their retirement savings plan.
