(ST. PETERSBURG, FL – Feb 11, 2015) Valpak, a leader in local print and digital coupons, hosted a networking event for the St. Pete Chamber Young Professionals and the Pinellas County Urban League Young Professionals on Tuesday, Feb. 10.


"We have been working diligently for the past two years to develop new ways to recruit young, diverse talent," said Michael Vivio, president of Cox Target Media and Valpak. "Part of our goal is to engage different organizations that house that type of talent and offer them a chance to learn more about Valpak and the Tampa Bay business community," said Vivio.

Executives from manufacturing, franchise business and human resources led a senior leadership roundtable with discussions about their leadership experiences and what it took to get there, as well about business and career opportunities at Valpak and the region at large.

Valpak has been involved in recruiting young and diverse talent as part of its Diversity and Inclusion initiatives, including hosting programs and tours with FLATE, the University of South Florida and 100 Black Men at Hillsborough Community College, among others.
