Cameron-Brooks Podcast: Episode 27 – How an Air Force Electrical Engineer and JMO Transitioned to a Career in Brand Management and Advertising
Dom Alcocer transitioned from the Air Force to General Mills as a Marketing Manger in April 2005. He managed General Mills brands in the cereal and holiday cookies categories. Dom claims he even invented a new holiday, “Back to School,” and a type of cookie to go along with it. He left General Mills for Pernod Ricard where he was “Director of Tequila” (pretty neat job title). Today, Dom is a Senior Vice President, Group Account Director at Y&R (Young & Rubicam) in New York City.
Dom is smart and funny. You will enjoy listening to him share:
