Veteran marketer, seasoned professional, strategic planner, marketing department fixer, and passionate teacher.
Katrina Olson, M.S.
I've been involved in marketing (in some form) for my entire adult life. I started out as an agency assistant, then completed my college education while working as a copywriter. I've been a business owner, agency principal/owner, marketing and public relations director, stay-at-home mom and part-time writer, college professor, an dfull-time consultant.
Since 2003, I've worked with the National Association of Electrical Distributors (NAED) as a writer, consultant, researcher and judge for tED magazines Best of the Best Marketing Competition. And about 72% of my clients are in electrical distribution or manufacturing.
I love solving complex marketing problems. Like how to turn around an under-performing marketing department or build a comprehensive marketing strategy.
I've won several national awards including a Platinum Hermes Creative Award , a Platinum dotComm Award, and PR Daily's Digital PR & Social Media Award for my digital marketing efforts.
After four years consulting with a multi-location electrical distributor, including three years as their director of marketing, I'm back to working with distributors, manufacturers, and other construction-related companies, organizations, and media.
