Talented People but it’s the character that counts

Maret Montanari

Maret is a member of our Dallas team, working on a variety of accounts including Interstate Batteries and Firebird Restaurant Group.  We first met her when she cold-called in search of an internship (which she landed even though we didn’t have a job posted). Over the course of that summer we discovered that she’s laser-focused on goals—generally accomplishing them with flying colors.

Case in point: Maret nailed a 4.0 at The University of Alabama, earning a degree in communications while participating in many extracurriculars. She was active in Bama’s Capstone Agency, rising from account executive to director for the student-run PR firm. This activity was often like a full-time job, leading 135 members who produced billable work for nine real-world clients.

During her junior year, Maret co-directed a 24-hour CreateAthon that generated $100,000 in pro bono work for 17 different nonprofits. She later plowed all this practical experience into a national competition, winning PR Week’s Outstanding Student Award for a campaign she created to attract millennial travelers to Delaware. In her free time, Maret began building an Instagram presence as a food blogger, something she continues as a young professional.

A native of Beaumont, Texas, she knew she had to put down roots in a city that understood the difference between cheese dip and queso.  Dallas checked that box and more with close family nearby. When she’s not sampling from menus around town you might catch this self-described bookworm combing the stacks at a Dallas Public Library.
