Director of Finance
A lifetime obsessing about organization has made Marissa the perfect project manager. She keeps the gears turning at Sulzer, the project pipeline moving smoothly, is the go-to person when you have a question and always manages to do so with a smile on her face. When she’s not keeping us in line and on task she enjoys visiting Disney with her family, reading manga, playing video games or taking funny pictures of one of her three cats – despite being a great organizer of people and projects, she’s yet to find a way to wrangle the cats into one picture.
Designer + Web Developer
If you can dream of a website, Francis can create it, and best of all can make all the parts of the site work and fit together so it is easy to navigate and easy for customers to find the information they are looking for. He has years of design experience developing brands, logos, and the websites to go with them. When he’s not building effective visual communications for Sulzer’s clients he enjoys being with his family, watching Formula One racing and playing guitar.
Senior Web Developer
Nikki has more than 17 years of design experience. She loves challenges and using her creative know-how to help a client’s vision come to life. She is an expert in designing both print and digital pieces that enhance a client’s brand and add beautiful graphic details to tell their message. When she’s not using her creative skills at Sulzer, she enjoys crafting with her daughters and spending time with her family and tri-color collie named Marley.
Marcy won a prize for a short story she wrote in elementary school and since then, there’s been no holding her back. She has more than 20 years of writing experience – everything from headlines to speeches, blogs to brochures. She loves learning about new businesses, helping determine what makes them unique, and then telling that story to their potential customers. When she’s not crafting messages she enjoys reading, gardening (or at least the flowers that come from the garden), and going to festivals with her family.
We would highly recommend Sulzer Inc. for any branding and communications project. They were very diligent in their initial brand analysis and audit. Michelle was able to truly understand our competitors, industry, and market, and built a brand strategy that set us apart in an extremely competitive market. Sulzer took care of all of our needs, was reliable, conscious of our timelines, and I highly recommend this talented and passionate team.
