After being an Account Manager here at Swagelok Northern California for about 6 years, I started managing marketing and communications. My role is making sure that Swagelok Northern California's marketing and communications help us realize our vision of being our customers’ favorite story. One reason I love this job is because I work for a company with integrity. We actually operate according to our mission/values statement and everything - components, customer service, the staff members - it's all the highest quality. Every day I get to collaborate with those who genuinely care about the success of Swagelok Northern California and its associates, and who are always striving to find a better way to serve the companies we are privileged to call our customers.
