Chief Operating Officer
What was Corey Finjer Bennett’s first move as Hawkins International’s first-ever Chief Operating Officer? “I got busy.” Indeed, she did, spurring the firm’s full-flung embrace of digital marketing including providing strategy and guidance for clients to transform the way they reach out to and connect with their audiences. Corey was also integral to the firm’s 2018 expansion into Los Angeles, as well as to its ongoing pursuit of new business and new focus on wellness and beauty. Beyond the above, she is responsible for the company’s day-to-day operations including general management, financial performance, client services, and talent management.
An honors graduate from Boston University with degrees in communications and psychology, Corey joined Hawkins International as an Account Executive in 2006. Even with so much on her plate these days, she remains a fun and down-to-earth presence in the New York office, qualities that have only grown with her promotions over the years. “As a new mother, I’ve got a lot of balls in the air. But I haven’t dropped one yet,” she says, noting the joys of raising her daughter Andie and experiencing the city together as a family with her husband Scott.
