Mariel Enochs, Event Operations and Public Relations Manager
The bright, witty and creative daughter of a Mexican press consul, Mariel landed on the doorstep of Malibu-based Consumer Product Events, where she oversees all aspects of the events produced in all cities. With a background in corporate, entertainment and Hispanic publicity (and a serious love of bikinis), Mariel shares her passion for publicity in our headquarters. Mariel has had the good fortune to spend her childhood in Caracas, Venezuela before moving to Los Angeles in 2001. She attended Cal State Northridge where she graduated with a B.A. in Political Science, then moved toward the PR biz, after completing the Communications graduate program at Cal State Fullerton in California. She has shared her natural proclivity for PR on projects such as the Newport Film Festival, has done local store marketing for 7-Eleven and the U.S. / Mexican Chamber of Commerce. She has also worked in the financial sector, providing social media strategy and even co-hosted a radio show with her father called “The Entrepreneurial Forum” on Radio 690, Los Angeles. Personally, Mariel has a thing for water. She designs a swimwear line she calls Onyx, named after a sexy Ixtapa restaurant by the same name. An animal lover, she watches after the office dogs, Bob and Sully, and lists at the top of her bucket list to be submerged in a shark cage. On the weekends she teaches kids how swim and love the water. When choosing a place to marry her sweetheart, Kirk, she chose: the beach.
Most favorite read (magazine, blog, TV, radio or newspaper) – I am a sucker for Cosmo magazine. I love to watch The Daily Show…daily. I love Ted Talks and follow closely political scientist and American journalist Fareed Zakaria.
Most memorable childhood product – Mexican candy. We were only able to get it when we would visit our family during the summer vacation, so everything we could bring back to Venezuela with us was cherished.
Most cherished news story of all time. – The fall of the Berlin Wall. Even though I was very, very young, and didn’t understand the significance of it, I remember clearly thinking “This will be part of history forever.”
