The establishment of the Sam Lilly Awards (an internal construction excellence award presented to one Interiors project and one Mainstream project each year) in 2014 allowed her to exercise her creativity and explore her potential in the Marketing area. Eventually, she got involved in the RFP process and quickly took the lead for Marketing efforts on all incoming RFP’s within the Interiors Division. Recently, she has been producing weekly blog posts and played a central role in Columbia’s social media efforts across all platforms. As Interiors Marketing Manager, Meghan will have the opportunity to apply her creativity to even more Marketing initiatives!
