Mary prides herself on extensive product knowledge, budget planning and execution & big picture objectives; attributes that have consistently helped her clients achieve their best sales and net profit months of all time, made her a fierce negotiator and molded her into an experienced and potent group leader.

Pete Gary and his team have been the agency for our market for several years, and during that time our South Florida district has seen record growth. Growth that has far outpaced any other market in the region.
The results of the media and creative have been phenomenal, and Pinnacle has consistently delivered on our expectations.
The team at Pinnacle successfully helped us create a new website and updated our logo. As a non-profit organization, we wanted a polished look that would help us attract new donors, while also utilizing user-friendly functionality so visitors seeking assistance could always find what they need. Pinnacle helped us achieve that. We are very pleased with their work!
