SCC will host the next First Citizens Professional Speaker Series event on Wednesday,
November 7 at the SCC Downtown Campus featuring Spartanburg native and marketing professional,
Molly Cashman. Designed to introduce students and community residents to local business
professionals, Cashman will share her experiences as a marketing professional with
national companies as well as her most recent work as the Chief Marketing Officer
at Spartanburg's Blue Moon Specialty Foods.
"We are excited to welcome Molly Cashman as the second speaker in our series," explains Witney Fisher, executive director of the SCC Downtown Campus. "Since the School of Business relocated to the Downtown Campus in January 2017, we have continuously sought opportunities to strengthen business relationships and broaden professional experiences for our students through interactions with successful local professionals. Given Molly's vast experiences marketing national companies and now marketing her family's Spartanburg business, she is an ideal speaker and contact for our business students."
A summa cum laude graduate of the University of South Carolina Honors College with a degree in Public Relations, Cashman spent the past 10 years in corporate marketing working for national companies like Amazon.com and Pure Barre. In mid-2016, Molly decided to try her hand in an entrepreneurial venture and helped her father open the first retail location for his company, Blue Moon Specialty Foods. The concept was successful and they have since moved to a much larger building and have expanded their offerings. Molly is a full-time partner with Blue Moon Specialty Foods serving as the Chief Marketing Officer, and says she adores having her three young kids join her for "shifts" at the family business.
