MARCY PATZER

DIRECTOR OF CUSTOMER RELATIONSHIPS

Since the beginning of her career, Marcy has always been fascinated by the customers path to purchase.  Utilizing displays and technology to grab a customers attention, for even a split second, in order to influence them to consider something new.  That interest has grown throughout the past twenty years into a passion for working with clients to truly understand their business needs.  From there, Marcy and her team are able to collaborate and discuss how the influence of technology can help to achieve those business goals.   

When Marcy isn’t geeking out over technology, she can be found with her husband at the softball fields, cheering on her two girls who absolutely love the sport.
