Jill brings extensive experience in advising leaders and executives on how to drive performance and achieve their goals through leadership. Her experience runs the gamut of consumer marketing, retail, B2B and indirect sales.
At MasterCard International Jill was the liaison between the graphic design studio, (SEVEN) and the Direct Marketing Group providing copy and creative for the well-known “priceless” campaign.
She was a feature writer/editor at Cosmopolitan Magazine and wrote monthly, by-lined columns in three trade magazines.
After she sold her design firm and her marketing company, Jill was tapped to create, develop and chair a design and marketing program at FIT SUNY, from which she graduated with a degree in Advertising & Communications. The Dynamics of Great Selling and International Trends and their Effect on the Marketplace were just two of the courses she designed.
Jill has been quoted in Fortune Magazine and has been a presenter at many industry seminars.
Fun fact: Jill met her husband on a blind date and was engaged three weeks later. Married eight months after…still married!
"Jill has taught me so much throughout our (coaching) engagement and is an amazing ally to have in my corner as I continue to navigate Verizon. Quite frankly - I don't know where I'd be right now without her."
"Jill is the best executive coach I’ve worked with, hands down. She brings a unique mix of warmth, insight, empathy, and deep experience that together provoke and inspire a fresh perspective on the job of leadership. And she takes a very personalized approach to addressing the unique challenges of an individual. Most important, our sessions have led to tangible and practical outcomes which have also energized my team. This experience will stick with me for a very long time."
"I wanted to THANK YOU for helping me to shape conversations with different stakeholders. You are someone whom I can be very candid about the situation, and you have always helped me to prepare well on how to handle the situation. The THINKING PATTERN concept has helped me to analyze the situation and the approach that I need to take in any given situation. There are some good and bad days and you have helped me to pull out especially on bad days, by just listening to me and course correct, if required. You help to keep me honest and always ask me to focus on HOW I come across as a leader and educated me that Leadership is messy. You have helped me to build confidence in tough situations which I thought would be very difficult.
Over a period, you are someone whom I look forward to talking through in a safe zone, which has built-in a long-term relationship.
I would like to take this opportunity to THANK YOU for all your guidance and support."
"Jill has been a calm and supportive voice, during a tumultuous time in my career. She shared direct and practical advice that has been beneficial in guiding me towards a better, more productive future. She seems invested in helping me grow as a professional, and I look forward to continuing the process and fully realizing the positive outcome this will bring. I'm thankful to have her as my champion."
"Sometimes corporate life is tough, strike that, sometimes life, in general, is tough! Engaging the right executive coach and finding that person you can truly open up to is rare. That person with whom you can be 100% honest, your true self, and not fear the repercussions of judgment. That person who is a great sounding board. That person who has an extraordinarily high level of emotional intelligence. That person who can help you to analyze your strengths and highlight areas where a different approach or strategy may be required to reach the ultimate result, and always in a thought-provoking manner (which elevates your own levels of self-awareness). That person who can bring you back to reality (with a velvet cushion!). That person who can arm you with the tools you need to maneuver your way through corporate life.
Forever grateful to Jill Vander Putten for being that amazing person for me. Thank you, Jill."
