NAMIC has named Daija Arias as its vice president of Marketing and Development, the organization said Monday.
Arias, who will be responsible for developing and executing marketing and sales strategies for the diversity organization, most recently served as senior vice president of RCN International Distribution. She also previously held senior management positions with such companies as Fox Networks, MGM Networks Latin America, Universal and Telemundo.
"NAMIC is thrilled to have a marketing executive with Daija’s experience join our team,” said Eglon Simons, NAMIC’s president and CEO. “Her ability to deliver results-oriented branding strategies within a collaborative setting is evidenced by the wealth of solid relationships that she has cultivated over the course of her career. Daija’s guidance and leadership will be invaluable as NAMIC continues its mission of advocating for diversity and inclusion.”
NAMIC also promoted S. Monique Wells to director of finance and administration. Wells, who was previously senior manager for NAMIC, will continue to oversee the administrative and financial operations for NAMIC National.
“I am honored to announce Monique’s well-deserved promotion,” said Simons. “Monique is a hard-working seasoned professional and a highly valued member of the NAMIC team. We look forward to her continued contribution to the association’s success as we further our mission.”
