NEW YORK, NY – It’s so hard to say goodbye… Days after celebrating his 12th highly successful year at PromoSuite, CJ Knowles is leaving the building to pursue an exciting new Sales career at Ark Foods, a Brooklyn, NY-based agriculture and food brand.
“While many people in the industry probably know me as ‘the PromoSuite guy at the conferences,'” said Knowles, “I like to think that I contain multitudes. I’m thrilled to take my passion for food and see just how similar workflow software and veggie bowls really are. I owe incredible gratitude to Rachel Field, Rocco Macri, and Chris Bungo for their mentorship and faith in me for over a decade, and I will always love this industry and the people in it.”
Knowles, a graduate of Ithaca College, began his career at PromoSuite in 2008 as Operations Coordinator, and four years later transitioned to the Sales and Marketing team as Digital Brand Strategist. In 2016 he was promoted to Business Development Manager and in 2019, he has promoted again to Director of Business Development. Although he officially spent his time in the Affiliate and Sales Departments, Knowles’ well-rounded skills, creativity and unique ability to synthesize concepts helped to revolutionize virtually every department at PromoSuite.
“It’s a bittersweet parting,” said Chief Revenue Officer Rachel Field. “I can say with confidence and sincerity that we would not be where we are today without CJ’s insightful contributions over the years. He has made our company infinitely stronger and more competitive. I wish him all the best in everything he does.”
