Marley Mason, 29, Marketing & Advertising Manager.
You lobbied and lobbied and lobbied that you needed someone on your team to help promote the stores through advertising. And finally, just eight months ago, you got permission. Enter Marley, a breath of fresh air in this sometimes old boy world of manufacturing. She hit a homerun in her first month on the job, producing an innovative mobile ad campaign (“Perigee: We’re close to the sun”) that was the talk of the Consumer Electronics Show. She is also a social media prodigy who has started a widely followed blog, and within the past few months has launched an aggressive presence on Facebook. She made you look awfully good.
