The Lake Erie branch stood out for its targeted marketing activities and new outreach initiatives, such as the launch of a women’s boating group. The Lake Erie branch also partnered with 15 to 20 philanthropic and community organizations, leading to nearly $40,000 of in-kind donations. Ranney was also recognized for her appointment to the National Franchise Marketing Advisory Council.
