I am a firm believer that everything in life is a collaborative effort. As such, I am delighted to introduce my professional colleague, Lynette D. Battle.
Innovative and visionary Leadership describes the commitment Lynette Battle brings to all aspects of her profession. Her passion for brand development, Fundraising & Development, and Events have given birth to industry acknowledged campaigns and programs. As Sales Manager for Lighthouse International, Lynette was responsible for procuring new business as-well-as enhancing the relationship with current clients and ensuring the retention of their patronage.
Lynette brings with her a vast amount of professional experience and knowledge in the areas of sales, marketing, fundraising & development, event planning and entertainment. Prior to joining Lighthouse International, Ms. Battle was employed as a Sales Supervisor in Verizon’s Consumer Residential Call Center. In this role she honed her skills in sales by managing and coaching a team of 40 consultants and was recognized for leading her team to obtaining the highest sales attainment quotas in the nation.
Lynette began her professional career at Essence Magazine and later moved on to become a Junior Purchaser for Sony’s Pictures Magic Johnson Theatres. This position was the catalyst for her rise to the position of Senior Analyst for Sony Pictures Entertainment’s motion picture film division where she was able to negotiate and procure lucrative deals for the company. Lynette has also held a top-level administrative position at a not-for-profit organization.
Outside of her professional career, Lynette commits her time to community service activities, including: lending her skills to assisting the Crown Heights Service Center, Inc. with its fundraising and grant writing efforts; advocating for children of abuse; and mentoring teenage girls.
Valley Stream, NY is home for Lynette and the greatest accomplishment of her life…her eleven year old son, Quincy.
