Showing up is the secret to success and Our Town guest Cary Hatch does just that – shows up – and has consistently for over 30 years. If there is a meaningful networking event in our town you can expect to see her there. After all communications, both domestic and international, is her business. She moves deftly within the advertising and marketing space, and as such achievements are, and have been, many.
We thought it only made sense that Cary be in the top three in our podcast roll out. Cary shares her secrets with host Andy Ockershausen on how she got to the top and how she stays there.
Interestingly, Cary joined MDB Communications in 1981 as an account executive, promoted to management in 1983, and purchased the company in 1987. Under her guidance, MDB was recognized as an Inc. 500 company in 1998.
Included within the spectrum of her client experience are National Geographic, Fannie Mae, Destination DC, International Spy Museum, Sprint, and Heros, Inc. Most recently Cary was called upon to work with the District of Columbia Government to brand Washington DC. Creative recognition for client work includes numerous awards such as London International Awards, Tellys, Silver Microphones, and National ADDYs and MAXI’s for excellence in direct marketing.
For 4 consecutive years, Cary Hatch has been recognized on the Washington Business Journal’s list of the most influential business leaders – the Power 100 – most recently in 2016.
Beyond client work Cary is a noted lecturer at top universities such as Johns Hopkins, Georgetown University, and the University of MD. She is also a regular on TV and radio outlets commenting on branding, advertising and marketing communications.
