MEET CAREN AND MARK

  • Caren Schweitzer, President & Founder

    What I love most about the culture we’ve created at Creative Resources is that we’re not order takers; we are a true collaborative partners. I wholeheartedly believe in the turnkey process that we have built.

    Creative Resources is all about reducing redundant layers in the supply chain, which is exactly how we’ve established a proven track record of cost savings and innovation. We truly help our clients set themselves apart with quality, while protecting their brand. Outside of work, you’re likely to find me entertaining family and friends, absorbed in a good book or traveling the world.

    Hi, I’m Mark Waldorf. With nearly two decades of experience under my belt, you could say I’ve been a promotions guy for a few “dog years” now. What I love most about my work is the opportunity to be creative and develop winning solutions for our customers day after day. I’m lucky enough to wear several hats at Creative Resources – Partner, Sales Director, Errand Guy. However, my focus is to lead and develop our talented sales team and foster our company’s relationships with our amazing local, national and global customers. We are thrilled that our customers continue to seek us out and are eager to do business with us. We must be doing something right!
