Amanda Sexton, Founder and Principle of FocusWorks Marketing, was named a 2022 Top Enterprising Woman by the Commerce and Industry Association of New Jersey’s (CIANJ) COMMERCE Magazine

Sexton was named as one of Jersey’s “One to Watch” for her work starting and running her digital marketing agency, FocusWorks Marketing (and she even made the cover of the issue!). 

“It’s an honor to be among the many talented professionals who have been recognized this year,” says Amanda Sexton. “I’m incredibly proud to stand among the amazing women of New Jersey, and am especially thrilled to be recognized as a female leader in the digital marketing industry as representation is critical.”

The CIANJ offers this award to female professionals who are recognized by their peers for their accomplishments in their fields. The “One to Watch” category highlights women who are destined to lead their industries. 

From COMMERCE Magazine: 

“When Amanda Sexton launched FocusWorks in 2018, she had no idea a pandemic would be racing her way. But even if she had been forewarned, she wouldn’t have changed course. Recognizing that only 1% of creative agency founders are women, Sexton was eager to serve her clients and become a role model for the industry. 

Offering the corporate and non-profit communities a unique approach to marketing designed to help them distinguish their message, Sexton focuses on creating essential narratives that differentiate them. Encouraging business leaders to identify a niche specialty, she offers original content that enables them to attract and train clients across all vertical markets. Along the way she has built her own scalable and sustainable company while trademarking the term “content that converts.” 

With a growing company that serves clients in the United States and Canada, Sexton has clearly demonstrated that she is a woman to watch.”
