&boom Founders Anne Buehner and Mary Carr are an incredibly visionary team with the talent and expertise to bring creative concepts to life. They are calculating strategists with inventive insights, a rare combination that yields big ideas and big results. They are also remarkably skilled at high-level problem solving and the effective management of complex logistics, enabling them to tackle projects of any scale and scope. As president of the California Avocado Commission, I have known Anne and Mary for many years and they have always brought the highest level of professional drive and determination to every project in which they have engaged.
I can't say enough about Mary and Anne. I worked with Anne before she founded & Boom at Red Door Interactive. At RDI, Anne was my creative partner, and she consistently brought strategic, smart, surprising yet always on brand ideas to our clients. Clients trusted her with big decisions and often turned to her for her point-of-view and advice. She was a force that really helped the organization grow business with clients. And, she was always a joy to work with - consistently positive, determined and willing to work whatever hours was necessary to get the job done.
With & Boom, Anne and Mary have created something unique and I have no doubt they will be successful. They believe that the best way to experience and understand a brand is through in-person/tangible experiences. Their ideas are unique, thoughtful and they are a force - I can't wait for The Cado and for the future successes of & Boom!
I’m writing this letter today to convey my praise and admiration of the shear determination and creativity in which Anne and Mary have shown. This has been a one of a kind project and I am excited to be part of the journey. Anne and Mary have displayed a real tenacity to get the job done. They have a real creative vision and in my opinion a well thought out strategic marketing plan. I look forward to watching The Cado become a success and seeing the future experiences & Boom produces.
