Tracy distinctly remembers her favorite uncle telling her upon graduating from her master’s program, “When you get over this little PR phase, get into pharmaceutical sales. That’s where the real money is.” Tracy never really got over her “little PR phase” and began her career in health care communications. While she has spent nearly 15 years in health care, her previous jobs and clients span a variety of sectors and include national and international work.
As the co-founder of Weise Communications, Tracy has successfully parlayed her public relations and marketing experience into her role as president of this integrated agency. She has three beliefs about her business model: integrated communication is key to a more successful business; there are no heights too high for her agency to reach; and our agency only creates work that encourages people to DO. BELIEVE. BUY.
Mark started his marketing career with telecommunications giant AT&T and has spent more than 18 years leading and motivating small teams of committed individuals to achieve lofty marketing goals. Mark recalls his passion for marketing began early when he found a career path that blends art with science. He believes there are business and management principles essential in a successful marketing campaign, but the beauty is that it can be delivered in ways only limited by the imagination.
When away from the office, you can find Mark skiing in the winter and on the tennis court or golf course in the summer. Friends and family look forward to his review of the annual ‘Pizzapalooza’ to see if any pizzeria earns a place on his speed dial.
