Eleanor Evangelista is an organizational leader with a background in management, sales, and marketing. As operations manager of The 2112 Group, she oversees all project management and operational practices, in addition to supporting strategic client engagements and business development.
Eleanor’s operational skills stem primarily from 15 years of sales management at taché USA, the New York division of a multi-national diamond company, where she spearheaded local growth plans to align with corporate initiatives established by headquarters in Antwerp. More recently, she further diversified her management expertise through her involvement in a non-profit special education organization called Eastchester SEPTA. During a five-year term as president, Eleanor has strategically run the group as a business, leveraging networking skills and working tirelessly to offer various curriculums for special needs students, grades K to 12, including sports clubs and other social skills groups.
Most notably, she secured a grant from the ASCAP Foundation that provided the funding needed to run a music therapy program in the local school district for the past four years. Strong organizational capabilities enabled her to chair multiple fundraising events, both large and small scale, while maintaining responsibility as a local and national parent advocate on behalf of SEPTA for advice and feedback based on the group’s reputation.
Eleanor graduated from Pace University with a BA in sales and marketing management. She lives with her husband and two sons in New York.
