Mary Gwen Evans

  • Strategic Brand Manager
  • My first name is Mary Gwen, last name Evans. Yes I go by both "Mary Gwen". I am usually asked if Gwen is my last name.
  • I grew up on a 42 acre farm in Maynardville, TN.
  • I have a 28 lbs cat named Pumpkin.

My daddy told me I could do and have anything I wanted if I worked hard for it. So at 16 years old I went into sales. At 17 years old, I went into management. I worked full time at GAP as an Assistant Manager and attended college full time. I moved to Tampa at 21 years old to work for Express. I was promoted to Store Manager, which was the youngest in the company at that time. After a few years I decided I wanted to live in a city so I moved to Chicago and became the Store Manager of BEBE and BEBE Sport.

After many years in the retail industry, I was looking for a new professional challenge and decided to make a career change and went into A&D sales with MDC. After 5 years I was promoted to a District Manager position and was with the company for 10 years. As an accomplished Sales Manager, I know how to deliver value to key accounts and drive

year-over-year sales growth. I am particularly strong in identifying opportunities for new business development and account growth by developing and leveraging customer relationships with key decision makers. I also have experience articulating the benefits of product and service solutions that address customers' business issues and impact the bottom line. When I look back over my career I realize that I have not been afraid of a challenge! I have been able to adapt like a chameleon to all situations and have overcome many obstacles.

I am so excited to join the Interior Systems team as a Strategic Brand Manager. My goal is to grow Diversified accounts to the #1 producing division within the company. I am confident that my experience, drive, and motivation will contribute to the growth of Strategic Accounts. I very excited for the opportunity to work with such an amazing company.

"Desire is the key to motivation, but it is determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal, a commitment to excellence, that will enable you to attain the success you seek."

I was born and raised in Maynardville, TN, but I now call Chicago, IL home.

I grew up on a farm so I am a true country girl who lives in the city. I have adapted to the fast pace city lifestyle, but my core values have remained the same. I enjoy hunting, fishing, hiking, cycling, and playing with my nephew Owen Boone Evans.
