Employee Spotlight: Lena Ruotolo

Each month, we like to introduce one of our great employees here at TJM. For November, meet sales representative Lena Ruotolo!

What do you do at TJM and how long have you worked here?

I am the sales lead in the Direct Marketing/Miscellaneous department. I’ve been working at TJM Promos for about a year and a half.

What’s your favorite product that you’ve sold?

I like to recommend products that I’ve personally used and loved, so I have to say the h2go Pismo water bottles [link] and SpinSockets [link].

What are your hobbies/interests outside of work?

I’m an amateur fiction writer outside of work. I’ve self-published one book and am currently working on another. And I’m participating again this year in National Novel Writing Month in November! (50,000 words in 30 days!)

Tell us a little about your family.

My husband Chance works as a graphic artist here at TJM Promos. We have a small family unit consisting of a goofy German Shepherd mix named Eli and a… pleasantly plump cat named Chao.

What do you like most about living in central Florida?

Proximity to family, the beach, and Disney!

What do you like best about working for TJM?

Every day is an exciting new challenge! It’s hard to get bored when every day brings something new. But even better than that is the people I work with. We’ve got such a talented, energetic, and fun crew that I look forward to seeing everyone each day.

Any exciting things planned in the future?

Other than writing more books, not really! 🙂

Anything else you’d like to tell the world about?

If you haven’t had a glass of water today, go have one. You’ll feel way better!

And also, have a good day, wherever you are!
