WORKING ASSETS / CREDO MOBILE
Production Manager, Marketing | May 2000—March 2003
san francisco, ca
Started by brilliant Stanford MBA grads, the founders sought to generate donations for left-leaning causes through things we use everyday. They chose utilities, the landline became their vehicle. I learned a dizzying amount about print production, press checks, vendor fulfillment, direct mail, and marketing, all while figuring out how to do these things economically and ecologically sound. A vibrant work environment, this admirable company has continued to use its talented folks to adapt nimbly and grow both its political footprint and its mobile business.
