CONRIC PR & Marketing | Publishing Names April Bordeaux as Creative Director
Connie Ramos-Williams, CEO of CONRIC PR & Marketing | Publishing, is pleased to announce April Bordeaux as the agency’s new Creative Director.
As Creative Director for CONRIC PR & Marketing | Publishing, Bordeaux takes on the lead role overseeing all creative graphic design services for the company’s publishing and marketing divisions. Bordeaux will work with other graphic designers currently on the CONRIC team to produce customized creative design for advertising campaigns, logos, newsletters, banners, social media sites, websites, stationary packages, business cards, letterheads, and promotional marketing materials. She will also oversee all magazine layout and design.
Bordeaux began her career part time at CONRIC in September 2012, when the company expanded to the east coast of Florida to launch the Barrister monthly attorney magazine for the Broward County Bar Association. Bordeaux was responsible for the layout and design of the inaugural issue, and has quickly grown within the company to take on even more client projects. Connie Ramos-Williams, owner of CONRIC PR & Marketing, says, “Ms. Bordeaux has great vision and talent. We are pleased she has accepted the position as Creative Director to oversee our clients’ creative projects and our growing graphics department.”
April Bordeaux loves her community, and is a third generation Floridian. She was raised in Fort Myers, and graduated from Fort Myers High. Bordeaux even attended college locally, receiving degrees in Finance from Edison College and Digital Design from Southwest Florida College. For the past 12 years April has worked in the marketing department for some of the area’s top companies, and brings a world of experience and knowledge to her job at CONRIC.
A few years ago when the local economy was hit hardest, the company Bordeaux worked for eliminated her position. She turned to Dress for Success SW Florida for assistance. It is there Ms. Bordeaux met Connie Ramos-Williams, the CEO of CONRIC PR & Marketing | Publishing. Ramos-Williams serves on the Advisory Board for Dress for Success SW Florida, and is a frequent guest speaker and mentor for the organization’s Entrepreneurial Spirit Program (ESP). Bordeaux was a participant in the program, when Ramos-Williams offered her a part time position with CONRIC. “I believe when you do good things, good things happen to you,” says Ramos-Williams. “Meeting Ms. Bordeaux and having her join our company, is karma, faith,” se adds.
Bordeaux now actively volunteers for Dress for Success SW Florida, mentoring and inspiring the women who now walk in the shoes she once did. Bordeaux states, “For the first time in years, I am doing what I love, and going to work every day doesn’t feel like work.”
