Women of Distinction - Kathy Wise
Originally from Rochester, New York, Kathy Wise brings 30 plus years of business leadership and solutions to the printing industry. Wise traded the harsh climate of New York for sunny San Diego to work on her master’s degree before crisscrossing the United States again and settling down in Daytona Beach, Fla. Her career has focused on guiding DME from a seven person start up to the fast-paced, vertically integrated marketing and print company it is today. Formerly DME's COO, Wise added the role of president in 2011 and continues to provide leadership and direction to help DME meet its goals. In her spare time, she serves on the board for DSCOOP (Digital Solutions Cooperative) and participates in various print industry forums. She loves being actively involved in the print community by sharing her experiences, as well as gaining knowledge about new trends and techniques.
