About Me

Who is Eric Cortes you ask? I'm currently the Social Media Manager at the Atlantic City Alliance. Cortes implements the social media strategy, coordinates with internal staff, agencies and external stakeholders to ensure its effectiveness. I also monitor and presents relevant data, trends, challenges and successes. I previously worked at WWSI Telemundo Philadelphia where I served as the Marketing & Promotions Coordinator for the local ZGS Group affiliate. I've also worked with the Greater Philadelphia Tourism Marketing Corporation (GPTMC) and Taller PuertorroqueƱo, Inc.

In 2010, I was named one of the “Delaware Valley’s Most Influential Latinos,” an event produced by the Philadelphia Multicultural Affairs Congress and Impacto Latin Newspaper, and in 2011, I took home the Hispanic Professional of the Year Award, one of three Excelencia Hispanic Business Awards distributed annually by the Greater Philadelphia Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.

I graduated from Temple University with a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism and recently graduated from St. Joseph's University's Master of Arts Writing Studies Program.
