After graduating on the dean's list from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio with a degree in Graphic Design and Marketing, Steve Mullin began a career in corporate America as a sales engineer with an international division of a Detroit Diesel engine distributor. Six years were spent in this sales and marketing position before he made his way into the role of Global materials manager. Two years later, and after 8 years in the international business, marketing and materials management community, he applied his business skills to forming his own consulting and design company. Helping businesses communicate, problem-solve and market products and services seems to be a natural fit for Steve, as do the creative and design challenges. As a business consultant and graphic designer, he has worked with companies in many diverse industries: Health Care, Financial, Wireless Communications, Professional Motorcycle Racing, Salons, Churches, Photographers, Marine Suppliers, Consulting Groups, and many others. From corporate identity and logo creation and complete business and marketing plans to web development and Information Technology, Steve continues to grow his knowledge and talents to better serve the needs of The Merlot Group's growing client base.
