Trisha Paine, Esq.
Chief Marketing Officer
Trisha Paine committed herself to a career in marketing before graduating from Salisbury University in just three-and-a half years.
She set herself on a course of fast advancement in learning and work that carried her to marketing management jobs. And she worked full time while earning both a master of business administration degree and a law degree simultaneously in, again, three-and-a-half years.
Her MBA and law degrees set her up, she says, to succeed at SafeNet, acquired by Gemalto in 2015.
In 10 years at SafeNet and Gemalto, Paine rose to vice president of marketing for the company, which provides critical digital security products and services to protect data held and used by bank and credit card companies and healthcare providers.
Last year, Paine became chief marketing officer for Hunt Valley-based ConnectYourCare.
ConnectYourCare administers health savings, flexible spending and retirement health benefits accounts as well as health care reimbursement arrangements to make it easier for employers to offer employees affordable health care.
“I wouldn’t be where I am today, from an educational and professional perspective, without a positive attitude and appreciation of all those around me,” Paine said.
She has provided free services to help low-income individuals who need wills, trusts, power of attorney documents and help in family court proceedings.
Paine also has raised money to support the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and to help pay for the medical care of a shooting victim and has volunteered with Habitat for Humanity in Harford County.
