ABOUT ME

JOANNE PARULIS

JOANNE PARULIS

MARKETING COMMUNICATIONS CONSULTANT

For over 25 years, I have been marketing some of the area’s most successful employers including The Yuengling Brewery; Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center; McCann School of Business and Technology; Progressive Vision Institute; Ghosh Orthodontics; Williamson, Friedberg & Jones; Reading Anthracite; Comfort Inn & Suites; and Mountain Valley Golf Course.

In addition to running my own marketing and communications consulting firm, I served as the Executive Director of Schuylkill County’s VISION. VISION is a community-based non-profit organization that works to develop and strengthen collaborations that positively impact the future of Schuylkill County.

I was the Marketing & Public Relations Director for the Yuengling Brewery, where I developed and managed the brewery’s first marketing department. I worked on the repackaging and relabeling of all five Yuengling beers, the market roll-out of Yuengling Lager, all forms of product marketing, sales promotions, and advertising. I also introduced the brewery as a tourist attraction to the area by scripting a formalized brewery tour.

I served as Public Relations and Marketing Director of Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center, where I was responsible for the internal and external communication, marketing, advertising, and public relations activities of over 67 departments and specialties of the Medical Center and its free-standing clinics.

In 1999, I started my own consulting firm - Joanne Parulis Marketing & Communications. Some of my proudest professional accomplishments include:

• Managing a successful ad agency with responsibility for a ten-million dollar budget and a multifaceted creative staff.

• Tripling the number of sales at Yuengling -“America’s Oldest Brewery” by creating and managing its first in-house advertising and marketing department.

• Raising over 17 million dollars for community non-profit organizations by developing special events and acting as chairperson for many major fundraisers such as The American Cancer Society Mardi-Gras Food Fest, Good Samaritan Crabfest, The American Cancer Society Relay for Life, Schuylkill County VISION’s Fantasy Night & Golf Tournament and The Schuylkill MDA Black and Blue Ball.
