Women at the Wheel Podcast, Ep. 8: Mevotech’s Kim Manson 

Manson, director of marketing at Mevotech, joins us for an in-studio chat.

Kim Manson, director of marketing at Mevotech, says she plays a key role in the company’s growth by helping to define its marketing strategy. She is responsible for the teams that carry out Mevotech’s branding and communications, cataloging, content, digital marketing and training.

“We produce such great products, so it makes our job easy,” Manson says. 

Manson and her teams work together to educate customers on the benefits of Mevotech’s products, and she loves that no two days are the same. “We’re very agile, doing new things, and adjusting based customer and market needs,” she says.

To hone her skills, Manson adds she carves out time on a monthly basis to learn about the industry, having been in the aftermarket only three and a half years, noting she worked in various marketing agencies before coming to Mevotech.

Manson gets involved in skills training, workshops, attends conferences, and meets with industry people to broaden her skill sets. And, she and her team work on honing their marketing skills, too, “to stay cutting edge.” Mevotech, in fact, was recently named one of Canada’s Best Managed companies by Deloitte. “It’s a huge honor and a huge testament to all the hard work that our team has been doing,” Manson says.

“What I love about this job is the people. I have the most unbelievable team; a huge shout out to them…they bring the passion, energy and talent every day and it makes the job so much fun.”
