Patty Funk

Vice President of Marketing

Patty has over 30 years of experience in advertising and marketing. She joined Marco in 1987 and has held various marketing positions within the company over the years. She was appointed Marketing Manager in 2014, Director of Marketing in 2015 and Vice President of Marketing in 2018.

Patty takes great pride in effectively promoting Marco’s brand and message and contributing to the success of our organization and clients. What’s her favorite thing to do at Marco? Work with a team of talented and creative people who are dedicated to supporting our sales efforts, enhancing our fun and unique company culture and communicating our competitive advantage. She also enjoys facilitating Marco’s Strategic Planning process to help develop and execute corporate initiatives. 

As one of the founders and mentors of our m:Powering Women program, Patty helps inspire female leaders in the company. Since she “grew up” at Marco, Patty has stories and experiences to help motivate this all-women group of emerging leaders. She is inspired by her co-workers, our high-performance organization and her loving husband, who adds so much humor to her life.

Outside of work, Patty enjoys fishing, gardening, shopping and spending time with her husband, two sons and daughter-in-law. She could shop all day and not even buy a thing.
