Eileen Nonemaker, CAIA, CBC, CDIA, CVIA

Eileen brings a truly unique perspective to everything she does and the organizations and people with whom she works. She has managed to integrate the formal training rigor associated with teaching and education with the ability to discern and meet the needs of the clients she has served. As a consultant, she has helped both for profit and not for profit organizations develop and implement strategies to increase customer and donor loyalty.

She is a Certified Business Coach, Certified Attribute Index Analyst (Innermetrix), Certified DISC Index Analyst (Innermetrix), and a Certified Values Index Analyst (Innermetrix). What becomes obvious when you speak with her is that she has developed the ability to establish rapport with and earn the confidence of all levels of decision-making executives. Eileen's approach of internal discipline has paid rich dividends for the sales staffs she has hired, trained, developed and managed in both product and service arenas.

Eileen began her professional career in education, teaching art at the Middle School level in Woodbridge Twp., NJ. During her ten years at Woodbridge, she applied, received and successfully completed two grants for multi-discipline projects involving ninth grade students and teachers. She also coordinated art career programs; student art exhibits, multi-media presentations and participated in the Township's Art Curriculum planning committee. At the same time she coordinated and instructed at the summer and evening, student/adult Arts & Crafts Program for the Montclair Recreation & Parks Department, in Montclair, NJ.

During a one-year hiatus, Eileen lived aboard a sailboat cruising the East Coast from Florida to Maine. She returned to the professional world in a sales capacity, realizing that many of the skills she had developed through her teaching, easily translated to skills needed in sales, especially the ability to present before individuals and groups.

As a new business coordinator, Eileen successfully sold lettering systems and sign making equipment to all sized organizations throughout central New Jersey. She quickly moved up the ranks to manage a four person sales team, develop sales and marketing presentations and coordinate trade show exhibits and product demonstrations. Looking to transition from product to concept sales, Eileen joined a small advertising agency in a new business development capacity.

After a brief taste of the creative world, she moved to advertising sales for Business Journal of New Jersey, the state's leading business publication at the time. Within a year she was named advertising director, managing a thirteen person sales and creative team producing two publications per month and various statewide directories. Eileen's artistic background and creativity was instrumental in helping her team and her advertisers develop ads, inserts and supplements that promoted their products and services in new, forward thinking ways.

When the magazine was sold, selling concepts took on new meaning in her role as Vice President of Sales for a regional courier/mailroom services firm. Here she worked with mid-size and large organizations in New York and New Jersey, offering outsourced mailroom and courier services. Subsequently, for the past six plus years, she has worked with two national IT consulting services firms. She has been involved in the supplemental staffing and outsourcing of Information Technology consultants and services in the financial and insurance industries. Her responsibilities included assessing the client's technical needs, matching skilled consultants to those needs and managing consultants on the client sites. As Director of Advertising Sales and Associate Publisher of an international boating publication, Eileen was again able to combine her creative, sales and management skills to build and then begin training a strong team. With success in print, events and the web, she and her team provided a full 360 degree marketing approach to the magazine's diverse marine client base. Most recently in the role of Sales Consultant for What's Up? Media in Annapolis, Eileen formed a strong sales team and helped to successfully launch a new publication. "A seasoned sales woman whose knowledge of her territory and clients proves impeccable. She's a gentle storm who can be sweet, but firm when needed. She's an overall go-getter who's inspiring." Ashley West, What's Up? Media

Eileen's experiences combine the selling of concepts and products with a consultative approach, relying upon her previous educational experiences and desire to help others successfully achieve their goals. She has a BA in Education and a Masters in Fine Arts from Montclair University, in New Jersey. In 2005 Eileen and her husband relocated from the Jersey shore to the Eastern Shore of Maryland, where she worked with various Chambers and clients until her move to New Bern, North Carolina in 2015.

She is now a member of the New Bern Area Chamber of Commerce, Coastal Women’s Forum and the Twin Rivers Art Association. Eileen was named “2017 Volunteer of the Year” by The New Bern Chamber and is the President Elect for the Coastal Women’s Forum. She sits on the Board of Directors for Craven County Habitat for Humanity. While in living Eastern North Carolina she enjoys boating, gardening and drawing in pencil and pen & ink.
