How We Came to Be
It was Hurricane Sandy…
During the period of extreme crisis in NYC after Hurricane Sandy hit, FOND Group’s founder Nicole Delma was called on to use her email marketing skills to help support relief efforts. To her dismay, she found the demands of her day job as director of email marketing for a major retailer limited the amount of time she could dedicate to that important work. It was a light bulb moment. Suddenly she saw how her digital marketing expertise could be applied to the greater good! With a shift of focus, she could provide real benefit to a much broader group of people.
Delma immediately resigned from the retail corporation and set out to support people, causes and businesses that truly aligned with her values and challenged her professionally. Her first client was Arianna Huffington and The Huffington Post which challenged and rewarded her tremendously. She was booked immediately for a repeat engagement before the first one had ended and has never looked back from email consulting since.
“Good business starts with a commitment to finding and
choosing to do work that we feel really matters. When the
work we do has meaning to us, we put our full hearts into
making both the process and the end result worthwhile.
Surround that passion and commitment with a network of
skilled experts who can help grow it and it thrives.
That is what FOND Group is all about.”
