In the six years since Temeria Heard founded Corporate 52 Marketing Group, she’s helped corporations — including her own — increase their brand visibility. “I got into this business because I used to purchase promotional marketing items and every time I received them, I had ideas how they could be better,” Heard says.
Heard was the 2016 recipient of the 10th annual Jackie Robinson MVDBP (Most Valuable Diverse Business Partner) award, given by the Detroit Tigers and Major League Baseball to minority-owned and women-owned businesses. The recognition elevated her business to a new level, and gave her the drive, fortitude, and confidence not only to survive, but to thrive.
Heard’s firm is poised to meet the needs of its clientele with efficient, exceptional service. “We pride ourselves on being available to our customers 52 weeks out the year, thus our name — Corporate 52 Marketing Group,” she says.
A full-service promotional marketing and branding company, Corporate 52 provides creative ways to promote businesses, clients, and campaigns. “We’re always on top of the latest trends,” Heard says.
Heard is also the founder of Swaggles, which supports organizations dedicated to rescuing, healing, and providing shelter and forever homes to dogs in need. “I’m grateful for the many organizations that are committed to rescuing and providing a safe place for dogs that suffer at the hands of cruel and heartless individuals,” Heard says. Swaggles donates 15 percent of its profits to anti-cruelty and anti-animal abuse causes. More information about this cause can be found at swaggles.com.
