Mary Planding Head Copywriter & Branding Consultant

A native New Yorker, Mary transplanted to Silicon Valley to work at Apple after having founded a successful education software division for an independent publishing company.

Since then, she's worked as a brand and marketing executive for Fortune 500 companies, start-ups, and mid-sized firms. During the course of her 30+ year career, she's added more than $200M per year to firms’ bottom lines.

Her experience gives her a unique perspective — she takes lessons learned and adapts them to a company's size and its resources. "There's always a way to scale up, or down, successfully," says Mary. "Experimentation and continuous learning is the key to staying ahead of the competition, no matter what industry you're in."

When she's not pouring over the branding research and latest analytics reports, you'll find her out on the bluffs and beaches of Santa Cruz and Big Sur wrestling with the wind for her painting easel, or cooking up a storm on rainy days.
