Shannon McNealy is named Senior Marketing Manager of Schiele Group, one of the largest print companies in the Midwest, offering a wide variety of printing services including commercial, large-format, web, sheetfed and more, after moving from the event’s and trade show industry. With clients ranging from the Chicago Cubs to Six Flags theme parks around the nation, they are a highly trusted and valued company.
“While Shannon has joined the team in the midst of the unprecedented times of COVID-19, the timing couldn’t be better,” said John Schiele, CEO. “Shannon brings with her a fresh perspective, innovation, enthusiasm and a wealth of knowledge in technology and marketing.” After nearly a decade working with clients in the live events, trade show, experiential marketing and production industries, Shannon has developed extremely diverse experience in all aspects of marketing and will be transitioning form the digital world to the physical in this new role. “It’s more important than ever to keep the U.S. learning, working and functioning as effectively as possible and Shannon is going to help us get the message out that we are here to help do so.” says Schiele.
In her new role, Shannon will oversee marketing initiatives and campaigns as well as work closely with the Director of Business Development to bring new channels of revenue to Schiele Group, such as creating a wide range of products specific to COVID-19 compliance and social distancing. Schiele Group has already proudly pivoted its offerings to focus heavily on compliance graphics including printed floor stickers/decals for indoor and outdoor areas, social distancing banners or posters, and most importantly, has distributed thousands of dividers/sneeze guards to schools and companies all over the United States. In addition, Shannon will focus on organizing other main product and service offerings such as direct mail printing, large format printing, union print offerings, event signage, kitting, card or badge printing and political campaign products given the upcoming presidential election. Shannon is looking forward to transforming the idea of print into more exiting concepts. “I’ve always been an abstract thinker, so when most people think of print as just a business card or vinyl banner, I think of 3D pop-out post card mailers, dimensional lettering on the side of sky-scrapers in cities, or re-branding the United Center Arena by wrapping the walls in modern vinyl graphics and hanging enormous, ten-foot banners of the Blackhawks faces from the rafters!” About Schiele Group
