Promotional Products Manager
Mary sources and produces branded apparel and promotional products that help build brand recognition and loyalty and keep employees engaged. She loves collaborating with clients to develop creative, engaging solutions.
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.
