Meet the Owner – Susan Cohen Grunwald
A few clients like to hear more about my background so here’s the scoop. I grew up in Hickory, North Carolina where my family owned ladies clothing stores. At age 10, I was in the stores making bows and wrapping packages. By age 15, I was on the sales floor. I might not have known it at the time, but I had definitely started my marketing career and my quest for success!
I couldn’t wait to come to the big city of Atlanta to attend Emory University where I graduated in 1987. Upon graduation, I worked in the hospitality and banking sectors while I attended graduate school at night. I received my MBA in 1997 from Georgia State University.
The Creative Edge was born in 1995, the same year that my oldest daughter was born. My husband and I also adopted two daughters from China, and we stay busy with our careers and family activities. On the weekends, you’re likely to find us cheering at our kids’ soccer games or playing video games with them with their Armchair Empire headsets, biking on the Alpharetta Greenway or running in a local 5K.
I have certainly found my career niche as the owner of The Creative Edge. I feel so lucky to get to do what I love every day.
