Leadership Team

 

Founder & President

Paula LaBrie

Paula LaBrie brings over 20 years of combined experience in business and association management and marketing communications. She has proven expertise with boards, including operations and financial management, and volunteer and stakeholder engagement. Paula also brings  strong analytic skills and an understanding of digital media technology, including visual storytelling through social media marketing. Particularly relevant to any association is Paula's extensive experience with other membership associations, including a strong understanding of member concerns and needs, membership development strategies, and the importance of stakeholder engagement.

Paula completed a Business Development Program in the late 90s with a focus in business management, operations and financial management, and marketing communications. This made her eager to cultivate PLM, a company that would effectively utilize all her expertise with her respective interests. PLM believes that what wins clients and what makes an association or business thrive is the passion that drives it. Choosing to specialize in a field means that you are completely devoted to it; that you will protect it as if it were your own. That is the energy that sets PLM apart.

Paula is a dedicated philanthropist, who spearheaded the Savvy Promotions Scholarship for people with disabilities and has donated her time and energy, participated in public speaking engagements, and raised tens of thousands of dollars for entrepreneurs and nonprofits.
