Stefanie Arufe

Director of Business Development

Stefanie’s Favorite Items: Interior décor book because the Pinterest-er in me thinks she is decorating a NYC designer loft everyday and needs 12 boards and fancy, thick interior décor books for reference; Kit-Kat – Fave chocolate (especially when frozen); Great-Grandma’s Cocktail Ring – She gave it to me right before she passed to remember her by; Whisk – Because I love cooking and would love to have my own catering company one day; Blush & Brush – Because I love playing with the stuff. I took a stage makeup class in college and have been obsessed with makeup since I was seven. Would love to be a professional makeup artist one day, too.

As part of RockOrange’s Business Development and Social Media teams, Stefanie focuses on advocating the agency’s vision to connect new and past client partners with solid, fresh ideas and opportunities created by our RockStar team as well as managing their presence in the online space.

Adventurous and culturally curious, Stef studied marketing at the University of Pittsburgh. The warmth of the people in the former steel town inspired her, and she soon discovered her love for community service. She served as community service chair for her business fraternity, Delta Sigma Pi, where she was able to work with several socially conscious organizations, including the Humane Society, Keep It Clean Oakland (KIKO), and the American Cancer Society.

Returning home to Miami in 2010 as a proud Steelers fan, Stefanie began her career at boutique marketing agency kabookaboo, working in account services. Within just six months, her talents in writing, go-getter attitude, and out-of-the-box thinking encouraged her to dive into the worlds of social media and project management. She worked closely with the creative team and applied innovative ideas and tactical approaches to team management and digital marketing communication.

She has a background in managing digital, social media, and marketing campaigns and initiatives for brands such as Chivas Regal, Miami International Auto Show, E&J Brandy, Wynwood Kitchen & Bar, Miami Seaquarium, Norman Brothers Produce and LaMarca Prosecco, among others.
