Mallory Logan has moved from employee to owner of RoShamBo, a marketing and design shop. This out of the box creative business is celebrating its seventh year in business in Gunnison.
“I started as an intern when I was a graphic design student at Western in 2008,” Mallory said. “ I have loved every minute of being here.”
The creative firm was founded by Delaney Keating, who mentored Mallory to eventually take over the business. They have worked for two years in the transition and called on the West Central SBDC. SBDC assistance included coaching the new owner and laying out the steps to acquire a loan for the buyout.
“Marilyn Laverty was so helpful in answering all my questions and so enthusiastic!” states Logan. “The SBDC is an amazing resource for entrepreneurs!”
“Mallory is creative and bold in her ideas, with a great level of commitment to customers and the end project, “ Keating said.
Mallory will continue to focus on the core business of devising marketing strategies, branding packages, graphic design, website development, digital printing and supporting clients to attract more business.
A major portion of RoShamBo’s business is outside of the Gunnison Valley. The firm won the statewide tourism award for their design of the Lake City Visitor’s Guide. Assisting Logan is the dynamic redhead, Keela Gendron. Mallory hired Keela full time and she is excited to take on the training role and give back the mentorship that she received.
