20 years in marketing and sales as an individual producer, sales manager and RVP of Sales for Citigroup. I currently work with small and medium sized businesses in 11 states and 4 countries on marketing and sales strategies. My focus is on utilizing the right tactics to support the right strategy for effective long term growth.

Tricia Breton

Owner, Tricia Breton Communications

I’m a communications and marketing professional who helps entrepreneurs and small or mid-sized businesses develop appropriate and sustainable marketing strategies to sell or market their product, service, or brand. To do this, I help determine who the customer is, what is the best message to share with them, and how to share that message. I earned my bachelor’s degree in English and women’s and gender studies from UMass Dartmouth. After my undergraduate studies, I continued my education at UMassD where I earned my master’s degree in professional writing. When I’m not working, you’ll find me raising my teenager, almost-teenager, and chocolate lab, as well as probably running through the streets of New Bedford.
