Clara, Inside Marketing Representative

Clara works as the marketing representative at Automation, Inc. For the past year, she has been managing all the marketing activities including our monthly newsletter, website, social media, and events. Clara works closely with our applications group, outside sales staff, and the manufacturers that we represent.

Clara, how has your background helped you at Automation, Inc.?

"I started at Automation, Inc. after earning a marketing degree from St. Cloud State University and I am involved in the local American Marketing Association (AMA). I started without much technical experience on the products and solutions that we provide. Thanks to the product experts here and by learning quickly, I now have a good grasp on the technical side of things.”

What is your favorite thing about working at Automation, Inc.?

"Every day is a little bit different; I can go from recording a Piab Cup testing video, to watching a Sawyer demo, to planning a seminar. It is fun to learn new things about machine vision, robots, pneumatics, or anything else that may come across my desk."

What are some of your hobbies and something customers may find surprising about you?

"I fill my summers with biking, hiking, and time on the lake. I love the snow and I am an avid Cross-Country Skier. I have plans to ski a 50K race in Wisconsin this upcoming winter."
