SeQuel adds support staff to better serve clients

SeQuel Response, a leader in the direct marketing industry, announced today the hiring of Mary Gulbrandson as office coordinator and receptionist. The hiring comes in response to the company’s nationally recognized growth in 2014.

Gulbrandson, a 2012 graduate of the University of Minnesota Duluth, joins SeQuel from SNI Companies in Minneapolis, where she worked as a marketing contractor. Gulbrandson holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration with an emphasis on marketing.

The addition of another member to the SeQuel Response family is evidence of the company’s soaring success. SeQuel ranked No. 16 on the Minneapolis-St. Paul Business Journal’s Fast 50 list in 2014, a ranking recognizing the fastest growing companies in the area. In addition, SeQuel reported revenue of $16.9 million in 2014, marking 784 percent growth since the company’s year-one total in 2010.

“Mary is a great fit for our team,” said Jay Carroll, SeQuel’s Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer. “Her diversified background will help to enhance our services to our clients.”

SeQuel was also named to the 2014 Inc. 5000 list, which recognizes the 5,000 fastest growing private companies in the country. SeQuel ranked No. 948, joining prestigious brands such as GoPro and OtterBox in the top 1,000.

“Mary will help us achieve our goals to more efficiently execute our day-to-day operations,” said Vicki Erickson, SeQuel’s VP of Client Services. “She will be extremely important in helping us meet the internal demands that a growing company experiences.”
