Refiner's Fire with Marie Quintana

16 Mar 2021
12:00pm - 12:30pm CDT

Join us Tuesday, March 16th, at 12pm CST for episode 3 of YCP's micro-interview series: Refiner's Fire! Every month in 2021, experienced Catholic business leaders from diverse industries will share professional and spiritual wisdom in short, 30-minute live sessions. So grab your lunch or a cup of coffee, invite some coworkers to join you, and enjoy these enriching conversations with a nationally known executive.

The March Refiner’s Fire is one you need to make time for! YCP’s very own VP, Peter Blute, will be interviewing Marie Quintana, Executive Vice President of Communications and Chief Marketing Officer of Tenet Healthcare. Marie has held an executive position for 25 of her 30 years in the corporate world, so she has a lot of wisdom to share with us about this month’s topic of Relationship Management with Your Boss:

A well-managed dynamic between boss and employee lays the groundwork for further success and career progression. Building a two-way relationship allows you to better accomplish shared goals as a team, produce better results, and develop your own skills faster. The responsibility for change and above average performance is in your hands too as an employee; understanding this develops trust, increases your value as an employee, and creates new opportunities. "Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you” (Matthew 7:7) In your relationship with God too, you have to ask, seek, and knock. Pursue a great relationship with God and He will provide and help you become who you are meant to be.


About Marie:

Marie currently leads the Communications and Marketing strategy for 65 hospitals and 490 outpatient centers, and led the launch of the first ever Tenet national marketing campaign that translated directly to 2019 business growth.

Previously, Marie spent 14 years with PepsiCo, most recently as the SVP of PepsiCo Multicultural Sales and Marketing. Ms. Quintana partnered closely with the Chief Diversity Officer and led various PepsiCo diversity initiatives and served on the Ethnic Advisory Board.
