Great Falls, MT — Vision Net, a Montana-based telecommunications solution provider, announced today that it has selected Thaisa Souza to serve as the company’s new Marketing Manager. Souza brings more than 11 years’ business experience to the role, with much of this acquired from positions spanning industries and countries. Souza replaces Nick Schlueter, who retired in December following 16 years with the company. She has served as Vision Net’s marketing assistant for the last year.
Souza is originally from Brazil, where she earned two undergraduate degrees – the first in Publicity and Advertising, and the second in Business Administration and Management. She continued her studies at the graduate level, earning a Masters’ in Business Administration (MBA) in Marketing 2015. Professionally, Souza has carved out a rich and varied marketing career with leadership roles in multimedia, digital marketing and social media management. She led marketing initiatives at business intelligence provider 4zoom, served as a marketing consultant for Multimidia Educacional, and provided communications expertise to The Actor’s Studio of Orange County. Additionally, Souza was co-founder of Informatica da Comunidade, a business that provided digital inclusion and professional training to disadvantaged communities throughout Brazil. The project was commended both nationally by The Brazilian National Software Association, and internationally by the World Information Technology and Services Alliance (WITSA).
Vision Net CEO Corey Jensen said that he’s thrilled to have Souza take on this key role. “Thaisa has proven herself to be a valuable member of our team,” he said. “Given the rapidly changing digital landscape in which businesses must now operate, it was imperative that our new marketing manager boast strategic vision, significant digital experience, and a deep understanding of best practices. Thaisa brings all of this to the role. We’re thrilled to have her take on this key leadership role.”
Souza moved to Missoula, Montana in 2017, living with a family member while continuing her studies in Business Media Design and English as a Second Language at the University of Montana. It was in Missoula that she met her husband, a Montana native. The two relocated to Great Falls in 2018 where she began her career at Vision Net. Today, Souza is happy to call Great Falls home while leading marketing efforts at the telecommunications solution provider.
“I feel incredibly fortunate to be able to leverage my education and experience on behalf of Vision Net, a leading telecommunications company with 25 years of history in Montana,” Souza said. “In addition to the company’s strong reputation, Vision Net boasts an incredibly welcoming culture and an environment that encourages creativity. All of these factors combined to tip the scale for me and made me feel immediately at home.”
