Coverbind Corporation & UNCW Continue Partnership
(Wilmington, NC. May 21, 2013)- Coverbind Corporation®, an innovative, international company dedicated to providing top quality business solutions for professional document finishing has announced today that it has expanded with the hiring of UNCW student Courtney Perrone as the new Social Media/Sales Support Intern.
Perrone will be utilizing her experience to advance Coverbind’s social networking methods, extend the brand’s reach across a larger audience, and provide assistance to the sales teams. Currently pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a concentration in Marketing, Perrone will graduate from the Cameron School of Business in December 2013.
Joanna Henderson, UNCW’s Director of Work Practice, states “Courtney is a great addition to Coverbind. She brings a passion for social media and a talent for marketing to the team. I am confident her coursework in the Cameron School of Business will be an asset to her work with Coverbind.”
The new addition to the Coverbind team carries on a long-standing partnership between Coverbind and UNCW, which has been mutually beneficial for many years. Susan Webb, UNCW Alum and VP of Sales at Coverbind comments, “We enjoy the opportunity to give students like Courtney, who are eager to jumpstart their career, this experience to put to test their academic knowledge from the Cameron School of Business in a real work environment.”
Coverbind’s internship program allows students real world marketing & sales training, and the company is no stranger to the talent produced by UNCW. Student Cameron Coates currently serves as the Document Specialist Intern, and former intern Brian Smith received his second promotion earlier this year to Sales Director for Coverbind’s Northeast Region.
“I am very excited for this new opportunity with Coverbind” states Perrone. “It is a dynamic company that allows me to learn with hands-on experience in a real world setting. Coverbind offers its employees a wonderful environment for growth, and I am looking forward to my time here.”
