2012 - Marie Purkert Launches christopher’s BDev/Marketing Department

“I actually started with christopher in 2005, as a college intern while finishing a degree in Communications and Public Relations. In December 2010, Bill Zink called and offered me an opportunity to return to christopher as part of the admin team, answering phones and helping with data entry for the accounting team. I worked as part of the accounting team for two years before starting as a Marketing Coordinator, a role which expanded the existing team from one to two.

Over the last 10 years, the department has transformed to a robust Marketing, Proposal and Business Development team. It is now providing informative, educational, creative and beautifully designed deliverables, strengthening our internal and external brands.”
