Kemar Cohen– Marketing Manager
Kwilliams@acaunited.com
I look to help the Firm in its efforts to communicate and deliver its benefits to its clients. I bring 4 years experience in the areas of entrepreneurship, life insurance, real estate and Entertainment. Staying true to my passion for Marketing, my work experience reflects my desire to find the most suitable industry. In an attempt to gain insight within different industries, under the same mindset of becoming a professional marketer, in 2005 I co-founded Fly City Entertainment Ltd. I worked as a loan officer for Fidelity Borrowing Mortgage Bankers a subsidiary of Fidelity Mortgage Bank, and Hudson Mortgage. I was also the marketing director of PRC Capital Funding Inc from 2005 to 2007 but my most recent marketing work experience was as a licensed Life Insurance Agent at National Income Life Insurance Company. (Lic #: LA – 1093572.) With regards to the aforementioned industries, I was able to get hands on experience and better insight into the industry I would make my career. Marketing and Entertainment have always captured my attention and with my work experience and my Pending, December 2009 Bachelors of Science Marketing Degree from St. John’s University I wish to make connections, apply real solutions to problems and innovate in a way that will impact the respective industries in the long run. My Family provides the greatest motivation for me on a day-to-day basis and I come from a Caribbean culture that always strives for excellence. I believe my triumphs are the learning experiences that will help me aid Alerte Carter and associates achieve its Vision.
