Phil expertly fills the role of Digital & Social Media Specialist on the Cousins Subs marketing team. Overseeing his journey from marketing intern to a full-time Cousins Subs employee, I witnessed first-hand his abilities to adapt and grow–both as a marketing professional and as a person. Phil is a creative, driven, and strategically-minded individual who seeks to continuously improve his and our team’s digital marketing knowledge and skills. I expect him to do great things in the future, and any company that hires him will be lucky to have him.
I could have written a glowing recommendation for Phil when I first met him a few years ago. He requested to shadow me in our office, and as a young student he showed curiosity and initiative that went above and beyond. But I've only become more impressed as I've spent more time with him, including a semester in my Social Media Analytics and Measurement Class. Phil shows a drive to succeed that's only matched by his desire to help others around him and make the world a better place. He's always striving to grow his own skills and body of knowledge, and use that to give back and apply his talents to serve others. The world needs more people like Phil Batzner.
I gladly recommend Phil for his numerous accomplishments as Marketing Intern for Marcus Hotels & Resorts. From managing our corporate social media accounts to creating and sending a marketing newsletter to division-wide leadership, Phil is a valuable contributor to our team. He has continued to excel through the duration of this internship and recently took it upon himself to present a recurring segment about the latest social media trends during our monthly training webinars. I have greatly enjoyed having Phil as an intern on our team and know he will be an asset wherever he goes.
Phil Batzner exemplifies the Ignatian ideal of "men and women for others." He is thoughtful, intelligent, conscientious, and a role model to other students. He has worked so diligently in leadership and community service activities that it is difficult to capture all that he has accomplished at Marquette. Without a doubt, Phil has been a champion of social justice and has made contributions that have profoundly touched the Marquette and Milwaukee communities.
