Rupa Vass

Marketing Communications Manager

B.S. in Applied Sciences and Biomedical Engineering and Masters in Global Innovation Management

I began my career at Praxair in a two-year Leadership Development Program. During my second rotation in the Industrial Gases group, I had the opportunity to work on both marketing strategy and marketing communications projects. Having an engineering and business background, I enjoyed being able to apply both skill sets to the various projects I was working on.

Towards the end of the rotation, a position in the Marketing Communications Group opened up. The role typically consisted of someone with a strong communications background, however, the hiring manager was impressed with the work I had been doing and thought I would be a good fit. Having only been in the program for a year and a half, I saw this as a true honor and a reward for my hard work as well as confidence and belief in my talents.

Over the past two years, I have come to realize that Praxair is a company where you are rewarded for hard work. I am surrounded by incredible colleagues who inspire me to continue to expand my skill set. As I continue to build my skills, I am excited about the challenging opportunities Praxair has to offer.
