Nancie Ploechl
Founder and President of Prairie Marketing

Nancie is the quintessential leader. “Curiosity is a vital and positive trait in getting better understanding of the world around us,” she says. While some may complain that asking too many questions can be annoying, or worse, remind us that curiosity killed the cat, Nancie responds that as far as she’s concerned, “cats always land on their feet!”

Being interested in others is an essential part for uncovering any underlying issues that are crucial starting points to the process for building a strong brand.

Nancie has developed a well-earned reputation as a savvy, thoughtful, and yes—curious–marketer. Working with the Prairie team she’s successfully completed more than 5,000 engagements in the US, Canada and abroad since starting Prairie Marketing back in 1993.

Nancie is the heart and soul of Prairie Marketing. She inspires and guides her team’s strategic focus and drives marketing initiatives to reach client goals; be it website development, corporate communication, corporate training, human resources communication, affiliate partnerships, online marketing, and trade shows.

She brings a wealth of experience working with clients in financial, real estate investment, association management, and b2b service industries. Additionally, guiding independent artists into maximizing the b2c retail environments.

Nancie graduated magna cum laude with a B.S. in Marketing from Western Michigan University. Over the years, she has been an active member in both the American Marketing Association and the American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA). When not crafting the next successful client marketing campaign, Nancie spends her leisure time in her art studio. A talented painter in her own right, Nancie’s favorite medium is oil on canvas. She has a special gift for aesthetics and working with color, whether creating it in her own work or on behalf of others.
