Champion Controls’ VP and Purchasing Manager participate in The Beacon Council New Leaders Taskforce
Champion Controls’ brother and sister tandem Marcel and Illianne Wedderburn joined other young professionals at The Beacon Council New Leaders Taskforce event on July 23, 2014 in Miami. The event was held at the FIU’s Downtown Campus in Brickell.
The focus on the event was to provide an introduction to Miami for young professionals who are new to the area, transitioning in the business community, or just looking to get more civically involved. Marcel and Illianne, as natives of South Florida, shared their unique perspective of the area with the other young professionals during the event’s cocktail reception and networking session.
“The best part about this event was meeting with other young professionals and being in a room with such amazing energy” says Marcel Wedderburn, Vice President of Champion Controls.
Illianne Wedderburn, who manages Champion Controls’ purchasing efforts notes, “It is so exciting to network with other young professionals aspiring to help build South Florida as the nation’s new hotspot to live, work, and play.”
The program also included a keynote presentation by Alexandra Villoch, president & publisher of the Miami Herald Media Company followed by a group discussion led by a panel of industry leaders.
