With an unwavering work ethic and the love of a challenge, Jessica Judge has been promoted to Marketing Brand Manager at BioZyme® Inc., in St. Joseph, Mo. Judge, who started her tenure as the Sure Champ® Marketing Intern at BioZyme in the Summer of 2018, was most recently a Marketing Brand Coordinator.
“It’s very exciting, and I’m really grateful to be involved with a company that believes in young people and challenges them to take on something new,” Judge said. “I enjoy a challenge and I’m very thankful to take on this new role. I’ve had some very good mentors and some extremely good teammates that I know will be very helpful as I take on this new challenge. The opportunity to take on a bigger role and to work with others on our team is very exciting for me.”
As the Marketing Brand Manager, her priority is helping implement marketing brand strategies across all product lines on a national level, with a focus on the end-user market. She will work closely with the Marketing Brand Team to facilitate the organization and daily functions of the team, including making sure the strategies for each brand are aligned with overall goals for the company. She will ensure metrics are in place to measure her team’s effectiveness and to ensure the marketing efforts are helping grow the bottom line at the end of the day.
In addition to having more insight and involvement as to what other brands are doing from a marketing strategy perspective, Judge will continue to focus specifically on the VitaFerm®, Vita Charge®, DuraFerm® and Sure Champ lines as she did in her previous role.
“Jessie has been a rising star in the BioZyme organization from the day she became an intern, and we are overwhelmingly pleased with her amazing professional growth. She has proven to be a self-starter, taken initiative in the face of limited supervision, all while coaching her peers along the way. She is a natural leader, and we are proud and humbled to have her as part of the BioZyme team,” said Kevin Hayes, Director of Outreach.
Judge is a California native and a 2018 graduate from Oklahoma State University with a bachelor’s in Animal Science with a concentration in Ag Business.
