Mari Edmund 1
Cover Story : Direct Marketer of the Year: Marisa Anne Edmund
October 2012 From Target Marketing
At age 7, Marisa Anne Edmund was already an experienced direct mailer. Wearing roller skates while packing boxes of expensive optical components, she'd already started her career at her family's Barrington, N.J.-based optics, imaging and photonics technology company, Edmund Optics (EO). At the moment, she's EO's executive vice president of marketing and communications and its vice president of human resources.
