His dedication to the industries Universal Unlink now serves and will grow to serve is summed up in the company’s catch phrase – UU & You!

Marty Hartman

mhartman@universalpa.com

Marketing Coordinator

For the last couple decades, Marty has helped businesses get their message out. From mom and pop small businesses to multi-national corporations, the process is pretty much the same. As he sees it, marketing is a tool to filter out all the folks who are not a customer so we can focus on those that are a good fit—the ones we can help most. At the end of the day, value is exchanged. The great thing about working with Universal Unilink is that we get to play matchmaker with our suppliers and our members. Everybody wins, and that’s a great reason to go to work every day.

Karl Fowler

He never forgets a name and is a walking dictionary on a broad array of topics from government to pop culture. The company tries to live up to Karl's example of continuous curiosity, courtesy, and customer service.
