About

Team

You know those print reps who stop by every now and then, sell you on a project and then disappear when the project gets tricky? Yeah, you won’t find anyone like that at SeaChange. We’re a team that thrives on challenges. Lives for relationships. And isn’t shy about getting our hands into the mix. We’re here to make it easy for you, from same-day quotes to last-minute edits.

She is passionate about the industry’s transformation and how the SeaChange team can help customers achieve their goals through technology solutions and a multi-channel approach.

Wendi’s love of analytical thinking began long before she earned her MBA. In fact, a childhood spent in rural Minnesota helping her parents manage a small gas and propane business sparked her strong work ethic and passion for taking care of the customer.

She lives in Eden Prairie with her husband, Jim, their two sons and their much-loved golden retriever, Murphy. She enjoys golf, travel, entertaining and cheering on her boys in all they do.

Mary is tenacious about the details and, in the words of fashion icon Tim Gunn, likes to “Make It Work.”

She began her promotional products career after 20 years in graphic design, marketing and branding for leading agencies and corporations in the Twin Cities.  It’s the perfect role for someone who earned a degree in apparel design yet scored highest for investigative journalist and librarian in a high school career interest survey. In retrospect, Mary realizes, that survey translates well to what she does now: “extreme research to find or manufacture what the client is looking for”. Of course, in true Mary style, that process includes a keen attention to design too.

She and her husband live in Deephaven with their crazy Goldendoodle, Stella. Some of her favorite activities include travel, hosting dinner parties and getting out on an SUP, skis or bike.

Dave Batdorf, Account Executive

From selling paper for a wholesale paper merchant to working as an account executive for printers, Dave has developed a deep expertise during his decades-long career.

When he first entered the print industry, Dave thought he’d be most drawn to the technical side of his job. That interest was quickly surpassed by his love of working with people: building relationships, creating cost-efficient solutions, and helping people solve their print challenges.

An avid hockey and football fan, Dave enjoys spending time with his family and going up north to his cabin. He and his wife, Sue, have three children, two grandchildren and a much-loved golden retriever.

Kim Obermaier, Account Manager

Ask Kim why she chose the print industry, and she’ll tell you she “accidentally” fell into it more 15 years ago when she took a receptionist job with a printing company. She soon after moved into customer service, and a career was born.

Known for her attention to detail and close relationships with clients, Kim enjoys being a valuable resource and finding ways to cost-effectively bring her clients’ ideas to life. She believes in setting realistic goals and prides herself on meeting and exceeding client expectations.

Kim loves art and music and has recently started playing the guitar.  As the mother of two grown sons, music lessons are just one of the new adventures she has welcomed since becoming an empty nester.

Tina Psyk, Account Manager

With her father, grandfather and aunt in the industry, Tina has printing in her blood from both sides of the family. She joined them just out of high school more than two decades ago. From her first role in a bindery department to her current job as account manager, Tina calls choosing the print industry “one of the best decisions” she has ever made.

While Tina has worked in customer service for years, she says her early hands-on experience gave her a deep understanding of print and made her stronger in her current role. She has an unwaveringly positive attitude and says she enjoys coming to work every day because of her clients.

Using her background of meeting the financial and computer systems needs in commercial, digital, book, and label printing, Pat’s priority is to transform data into easy to understand information for all facets of the organization, in a way that supports and informs their decision making.
