The University of Advancing Technology (UAT) Board of Directors ratified several presidential actions during its summer board meeting. One of those actions was the pre-approval to promote Ms. Valerie Cimarossa to a C-level executive.
Now, Ms. Cimarossa has been officially promoted to the position of UAT Chief Marketing Officer (CMO). Jason Pistillo, UAT President, endorsed her promotion with the following: “Valerie is fast, friendly, smart and fearless. I’m proud to have watched her growth over the last few years, and I think her eclectic blend of natural talent, credential, skill and bandwidth is most impressive.” Pistillo continued, “Beyond that, she is a voracious learner and a natural competitor, which is what UAT needs as we move into our next evolution.”
Ms. Cimarossa has been able to scale all UAT growth indicators 20% year over year for the last 24 months (including inquiries, apps, and enrolls). As a champion for education, she is also a leader in community youth organizations. For the Girl Scouts, she has organized STEM summer camps to help encourage women in tech. Ms. Cimarossa donated computers to the new Parson’s Boys & Girls Club of Scottsdale, as well as for the new STEM maker space for all nine Scottsdale clubs. She also serves as an advisory board member for the Boys & Girls Club STEM maker space committee.
