WEBSTER, N.Y., December 22, 2020—US Ceiling Corp is pleased to announce the promotion of Sherry Jackson to vice president of marketing and communications.
In her new role, Jackson will continue to lead strategic marketing initiatives, as well as drive efforts for brand recognition, advertising, social media and internal and external communications.
“Sherry has proven herself to be an invaluable asset to our company. She performs with the stealth and grace of a racehorse and the force of an army,” says Melissa Geska, president of US Ceiling Corp. “With the passion and diverse mix of communications industry experience she brings, I know she will continue to expand and bolster our marketing and brand initiatives, and we are excited to see her continued leadership.”
Jackson joined US Ceiling in 2018 as director of marketing and business development, helping rebrand the growing minority- and woman-owned (M/WBE) company and successfully launch its AeroBarrier division.
A results-driven leader, Jackson began her communications career as a public affairs associate at the Brooklyn VA Medical Center. Since then, she’s worked locally as an award-winning advertising copywriter and public relations account executive, successfully managing key accounts in the wine and spirits, energy, transportation, aerospace, defense, industrial, and senior health care markets. Jackson made the shift to the construction industry more than six years ago, serving as a corporate communications specialist and diversity program manager. It was then she tapped into her passion for supporting M/WBE firms.
“I feel extremely blessed to reach a point in my career where my ‘heart work’ intersects with my ‘work work,’” says Jackson. “US Ceiling has the magic that only a diverse team can bring and I’m honored to continue helping the company build its incredible capacity.”
Jackson holds a B.A. in communications/journalism from St. John Fisher College and is a co-founder of the Rochester Anti-Racism Action Coalition. She resides in the Webster, N.Y. area.
