SOUTH FALLSBURG, N.Y. — Majestic Drug, a manufacturer of niche oral care and personal care products, has promoted Nilda Oyola to national sales and marketing manager.
"Innovation, creativity and energy are at an all-time high at Majestic with the promotion of Nilda to national sales and marketing manager. Hired as a receptionist 23 years ago, it wasn't very long before Nilda's intelligence and commitment to Majestic Drug was recognized. She was promoted on numerous occasions attaining positions of greater and greater responsibility, including assistant to the president, office manager, head of accounts receivable/payable, head of international customer service and now, national sales and marketing manager," stated president Larry Fishman.
"At Majestic, we make it a point to recognize and support quality — whether it is in a valued employee like Nilda or in the products we sell," Fishman added. "We are pleased to have provided Nilda with the opportunity for success. We recognized her potential, acknowledged it and supported her in the decision to pursue a college degree while working full-time."
In May 2010, while attending SUNY Orange to earn her degree in business administration, Oyola was 1-of-76 students, selected from several thousand applicants nationwide, to participate in the National Community College Aerospace Scholars pilot program. This opportunity culminated in a three-day workshop held in Houston where Oyola toured NASA and met with astronauts.
"That trip was a highlight in my life. I left NASA completely energized and inspired. As I continue to work towards my MBA at SUNY New Paltz School of Business, I cannot wait to apply what I have learned to my new position at Majestic," Oyola stated.
