Stratford Resident, Valerie Trudgeon, Selected As New Sales And Marketing Manager For Royal Palisade Retirement Community

Valerie Trudgeon is being introduced as Royal Palisade Retirement Community's new Sales and Marketing Manager. With the former Sales and Marketing Manager moving to a different retirement community, the position was open at Royal Palisade.

Royal Palisade's new Sales and Marketing Manager is Stratford's own Valerie Trudgeon. With the previous manager, Sue Le Beau, needing to move to the Retirement Life Community located in Goderich, a vacancy was created. Trudgeon has been selected to fill that spot.

As a former Esthetic Spa owner and most recently a Sales Representative for the Stratford Gazette for the past five years, Trudgeon has gained experience in sales and marketing as well as in working with people. She was able to increase the clientele base at the companies she formerly worked for and is excited to do the same for the Royal Palisade Retirement Community as their new Sales and Marketing Manager. She already appreciates the quick acceptance she has been given by both the staff and the residents and is looking forward to becoming a contributing member of the Retirement Life Community team at Royal Palisade.

Trudgeon is a Stratford resident with strong ties to the community. She has been married for 20 years to her husband, who is a millwright, and has two children. She loves her family and the Stratford area and is involved in a variety of community activities. She is a member of the RAW running group and supports her children who take taekwondo and gymnastics lessons, and play soccer. She is a supporter of the arts, with strong interests in theater, music, and art.

Retirement Life Community's goal is to provide independent living for seniors who want to enjoy a dignified retirement. The company website states "Our philosophy is to make a positive difference in anyone's life that we touch - from our residents and their families, to our staff and our partners.

This is reflected in everything we do." Trudgeon subscribes to that philosophy and feels she has already experienced proof of it in her warm welcome at Royal Palisade. She is looking forward to getting to know her co-workers and the residents better as she fills her new position as the Sales and Marketing Manager.
