Jenna Coccimiglio, owner of Garnet Marketing Solutions, is a business professional with more than 20 years of marketing, operations, and event planning experience.
She was 22 years old when she started her first business, opening a gift basket and specialty foods store with her mother. It was a crash course in the skills every local entrepreneur needs: word-of-mouth marketing, going the extra mile for your customers, finding a niche, and tailoring your offerings to meet customer needs. To this day, she can tie the best decorative bow you’ve ever seen.
Jenna also has eight years of corporate experience in operations and marketing, first as a guest services manager and then as a marketing director for Simon Malls. She also spent six years as executive director of the Malden Chamber of Commerce and Peabody Area Chamber of Commerce.
Her passion for social media marketing grew out of her various marketing roles with Simon Malls and continued to thrive while managing the Malden and Peabody Area Chamber’s of Commerce. Utilizing her background in business development for both large and small companies, a passion for graphic design, and extensive management of social media platforms for a variety of employers and clients, she now focuses exclusively on helping small local businesses and organizations create, maintain, and benefit from social media marketing.
