Women Who Move Detroit – 2022 – Special Section
In the eight years since Temeria Heard founded Corporate 52 Marketing Group, she’s helped corporations increase their brand visibility.
“We thoroughly enjoy helping our client’s with creative and cost-effective strategies to enhance their brand through promotional marketing. We collaborate on idea consulting
to bring our client’s vision to life. We can create custom swag bags, including corporate and employee gifts. Our additional capabilities include website/graphic design, commercial printing, social media management, and photography,” she says.
Heard was the 2016 recipient of the 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 was the first Black woman to receive the award. 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 of the year,” she says. A full-service promotional marketing and branding company, Corporate 52 provides creative ways to promote businesses, clients, and campaigns, including rebranding strategies. “We’re always on top of the latest trends,” Heard says. Heard is also the founder of SWAGGLES, which is a Detroit born brand that offers unique paw branded apparel and accessories for paw rents and dogs. “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,” she says. Through their sales, SWAGGLES donates a percentage of profits to local and national animal rescues and shelters. More information can be found at swaggles.com.
