Kind Words

"When I think of what Mary has contributed to our brand, I always remember the day she showed us our first campaign. It was a very moving moment because her campaign not only gave us confirmation of what we had achieved, it also gave us a clearer vision of what we could become.

Mary has been an important part of our growth. Over the past five years, she has become the voice of Curves. Her words and passion and insights helped us define Curves in a way that I'm extremely proud of and in the process she has touched the lives of millions of women."

"Mary Dean...played a leadership role in crafting our brand identity and promise in the initial years of our first national advertising effort. During this time, she not only helped define the vision and its expression in advertising, but she was an effective advocate for that vision with our senior management and franchise organization. She was passionate about her work and our business and everyone at Curves has high regard for her talent."

"I've worked with Mary as both a colleague and a client and her insights into female consumers have resulted in advertising campaigns that deliver results while carving out a unique place for brands in women's hearts and minds. Mary has a business-honed instinct of what makes consumers tick that goes beyond the traditional mythology of marketing to women."
