Michelle Orelup's Professional Recommendations (as posted on Linkedin)
When I first met Michelle, she had little to no experience with Microsoft Dynamics CRM or ClickDimensions. The company she worked for had no onsite subject matter expert, so she dug in and quickly learned how to use the database, build queries, create rules, and learned how to automate marketing with ClickDimensions. Within a month she discovered 15,000 expired records that were not identified as 'Do Not Contact'. Michelle updated those records to ensure they would not be included in future marketing efforts. She also developed a process to identify new data to ensure this issue would not reoccur. This action alone saved Global tens of thousands of dollars in fines. Michelle was instrumental in leading our Sales and Marketing efforts through Lead Generation. Sales in 2014 increased 50% over the prior year due to the cleansed data and more targeted, personalized messaging.
Michelle read dozens of articles every day to understand what was happening with healthcare legislation, technology, and trends and the impact on physician practices. She incorporated this information into the website content library and shared it on social media. This monthly practice grew Global's Linkedin followers by 400%. Michelle consistently looks for ways to improve efficiency and is fearless at testing new marketing channels.

I have worked with Michelle and found her to be invaluable to executing a wonderful promotion with JC Penney. Michele was responsible for implementation of a $25 million nationwide promotion which ran flawlessly for 4 months. This promotion had over 1/2 million consumer interactions. Michele worked tirelessly, and showed professionalism and courtesy to all who interacted with her.

Michelle is very intelligent and is very detailed in her work, she is an asset to any company. Michelle developed a web-based, print-on-demand application, developed and managed the email marketing channel, and provided research and recommendations based on online searches from the web analytics package- none of which existed until Michelle created. The sales channels( Stores) doubled the average revenue per year in Michelles tenure and store count sky rocketed as a result of increased profitability and performance of the marketing department in which she presided as the leader of customer data strategies.
