Meet the ECS Pittsburgh Business Development Manager

ECS Mid-Atlantic, LLC is pleased to announce that Ms. Jennifer Portaro has joined the Pittsburgh branch office as Business Development Manager. 

“Along with traditional business development activities, I do have some out-of-the box ideas and initiatives to help distinguish ourselves in the market,” said Ms. Portaro.

Ms. Portaro was most recently with Menard Group USA, serving as Manager of Client Care since 2015. In this role she was responsible for strategic planning for business development and management of the company-wide client care program, which she wrote and implemented. She joins ECS with a broad depth of experience, generating more than $25 million in leads from direct campaigns, providing training in best sales management practices and creating an internal safety campaign for her previous employer. She is eager to expand her business development knowledge and practices with ECS.

“Of course, ECS is a respectable and well-known organization, but what really intrigued me is its entrepreneurial spirit at the branch level. That, combined with the charge of growing a newer branch office, really excited me,” said Ms. Portaro. “This is a fantastic time to be in Pittsburgh! There is so much developing in and around the area. To see the potential of the market and how ECS can really help clients with our services makes it fun to come to work.”

Ms. Portaro received her Bachelor of Arts in Economics from the University of Michigan in 2005. She is the recipient of the November 2015 Corporate Innovation Award for Business Development.
