Women Who Move Detroit – 2021 – Special Section
In the seven years since Temeria Heard founded Corporate 52 Marketing Group, she’s helped corporations increase their brand visibility. “I got into this business because I used to purchase promotional branded items for a former employer and every time I received (the items), I had suggestions on how they could be better,” 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 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,” she says.
SWAGGLES donates a percentage of its proﬁts to anti-cruelty and anti-animal abuse causes. More information can be found at swaggles.com.
