Ann brings real world experience to the promotional product industry as demonstrated by her 30+ years of living and breathing all facets of marketing. Her beginnings as an award-winning graphic designer for United Way of America provided the foundation for her creativity today. Ann’s unique leadership skills are the reason for her success as the manager of a print shop consisting of 5 male union employees where her insights were published in In-plant Magazine. Years later, she was awarded an Addy for her contribution to an ad campaign for Washington Gas. While at CACI, she won a Wing Award for proposal designs which generated over $200 million in revenue. In a twist of fate, she is credited with starting CACI’s company store. Perhaps you might say that Ann is in sales. But if she hears you, she will tell you that she is not an order taker, nor has she ever made a cold call. And she owes that to networking as much as possible and building long-lasting relationships. Ann was honored to serve on our the BNI Executive Team for 8 years. She is an award-winning member of a local Toastmasters club, a member of WEBA (West End Business Association), Arlington Chamber of Commerce, BNI Cameron Breakfast and Women on Course. Ann loves the beach, gardening, reading, entertaining friends, and spending time with husband Ron (now cancer-free for 7 years) and playing with their 2-year old pup, Punkin.
