Meet Greater China's Marketing Manager, Mark St. Peter

17 years ago, Mark St. Peter joined the team at Greater China when it was only three years old. He has loved being a part of the company’s evolution as the importing world changes and Greater China furthers its mission of standing out from the competition with custom products and extraordinary customer service. We recently had the opportunity to sit down with Mark and hear a little bit more about him and his role in Greater China’s story.

What is your role at Greater China?
In addition to being an import executive with accounts of my own to manage, I’m also Greater China’s Marketing Manager. My team and I are responsible for the website, creating advertisements, corresponding with the different magazines and publications that we advertise in, buyer’s guides, and really everything related to marketing Greater China’s capabilities and goals.

What are some goals you have for Greater China?
I want to increase opportunities for Greater China and our partners. My team and I do this by prioritizing marketing materials that are creative and tell our story, and showcase our unique capabilities – custom products that differ from your typical promotional commodities. I want our marketing to reflect that mission, to keep things relevant and exciting.

What do you enjoy most about working at Greater China?
Every day brings a different set of projects and opportunities, and I like that variety. I like that we’re not doing the same thing every day. In my specific role, I get to work with customers to collaborate on projects, inform them about their opportunities, and, ultimately, provide solutions. That’s the most rewarding part – providing solutions for the problems that these companies face, and helping them succeed.

What do you like to do outside of the office?
I spend as much time as possible outside. I keep a garden, I hike often, and I do a lot of bike riding. I try to sneak out to Arizona a couple of times a year to get a little sun, but I love the outdoor activities that the Pacific Northwest has to offer, too.

Mark is excited to celebrate Greater China’s 21st Anniversary in 2016. When he first started, importing was a novelty subject for many companies, and he’s looking forward to continue to educate his client base for success as the industry grows and changes.
