Laura Mahon, VP Sales & Marketing
Realizing there was a void for restaurant and hospitality industry niche marketing, Laura Mahon established her own firm, Restaurant Redux in 2009. Leaving a corporate sales and marketing position in the Hospitality Industry, she built her new company with the goal of optimizing sales for the restaurant and event venue market, providing effective but affordable marketing for independent businesses. With a degree in marketing and graphic design, Laura also spent three years as a Wedding Planner, experiencing the industry first hand and gaining insight to the needs and expectations of it's clientele. Although a native New Englander, Laura spent many years living and working in Europe, and brings a Continental sensibility to her design aesthetic. In her new role as partner of Apple Publications, Laura is the driving force behind company sales and marketing efforts as well as a designer. She is a huge enthusiast of all things 'wedding industry' and brings that excitement to the pages of her publications.

Karen Stevenson, Design Director
Karen Stevenson, a graphic designer and web builder by trade, has brought her high end design aesthetic to Apple Publications. She can usually be found in her office, busy creating one of our beautiful brochures or building one of her amazing websites. Inspired by her Dad at an early age to find a career that she loved, Karen graduated from University of Connecticut with a B.A. in Fine Arts. Combining her love of creating beautiful design with the business of marketing a product has become Karen's passion and also her forté, as her satisfied clientele will attest. When not glued to her iMac computer, Karen can be found teaching "Intro to Digital Media" at the University of Connecticut, browsing used book stores and perfecting the art of letterpress printing. She is also passionate about raising funds for local animal shelters (thesheltermeproject.com) and enjoys spending time with her own furry friends.

With an degree in business from UMASS and a background in food & beverage, Scott has spent the last eight years as a corporate trouble shooter for Marriott International. Here at Apple Publications, Scott keeps things running smoothly, managing budgets, executing financial business strategies and planning company sales goals.
Despite his inclination to work too many hours, Scott does manage to find time to be a college basketball fanatic and avid skier.
