Arlene Bryant - Marketing Strategist

Born one of seven children in Vanceburg, Kentucky (a thriving metropolis of 1,731 people along the Ohio River), Arlene (Polley) Bryant left her old Kentucky home to become a sales and marketing manager for two national companies. After growing tired of traveling the country, she threw away her suitcase and frequent flyer card, settled in the Cleveland area and has served as a media consultant in print advertising for the past 20 years. Arlene says she seized the opportunity to make the switch to Mimi early in 2009, and hasn’t looked back – and hasn’t stopped running. Her greatest joy is when her clients say to her after their ad/article has run, “We’ve been swamped!” Arlene loves books, antiques, theater, classical music, and a nice, dry martini on Friday nights.
