Senior Reputation Specialist in Lancaster, Pennsylvania
Steven Viera is a young professional based in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Throughout his education and career, Steven has centered his philosophy and work ethic on the power of communication to share ideas, forge connections, and generate solutions.
Steven earned his bachelor’s degree in history from Franklin & Marshall College in 2016. As the first member of his family to attend college, Steven Viera immersed himself in every on-campus opportunity he could to compliment his experiences in the classroom. He joined The College Reporter, F&M’s independent student newspaper, and the Penn Eta Chapter of the Phi Kappa Psi Fraternity, eventually attaining the positions of Managing Editor and President, respectively.
Steven was also nominated and accepted into a number of prestigious honor societies, such as the Black Pyramid Senior Honor Society, the Pi Alpha Theta History Honor Society, and the Alpha Kappa Delta Sociology Honor Society.
F&M was the ideal environment for Steven to explore his passions and develop key skills. In his history classes, for example, careful examination of primary sources and scholarly texts honed Steven Viera’s eye for detail and analytical mind; this taught him to formulate and deconstruct an argument as well as how to appreciate the underlying factors responsible for behaviors or trends.
Following graduation, Steven began a position as a Reputation Specialist at BrandYourself. He managed a series of online branding campaigns for a portfolio of 10-15 clients that required him to develop and execute strategies, create and publish content—both written and multimedia—manage social media and websites, update websites and enhance SEO efforts, and more.
After his first year at BrandYourself, Steven Viera was invited to step in to a newly-created role: Senior Reputation Specialist, a position that combined the account executive responsibilities of his previous position with various management and mentoring duties. He serves as a resource for all members of BrandYourself’s Concierge Department seeking help crafting campaign strategies or with client communication, and in doing so, he plays an important role in nurturing employees’ talents.
Outside of the office, Steven Viera enjoys reading, hiking, and travel. Steven has a deep admiration for Japanese culture and is learning both the language and the art of bonsai cultivation.
