Sales Representative | Bertelsmann/Coral Graphics
Maribeth Poalson grew up in Indianapolis. She had no idea her career path would end up in print packaging. Being a part of the artistic process of album art never entered her mind. After receiving an Arvin record player for her 16th birthday along with the Aretha Franklin album, I Never Loved A Man The Way I Love You. Music became a significant part of her. During her senior year of high school, her dad lost his job and she had to find an employer that would pay/reimburse for a college degree. Queens Litho, a pioneer in music packaging, was the answer to her prayers and her career path. She started at Queens in 1982 as the receptionist and worked her way through customer service, production, administration and ultimately sales and sales management. Last year she was lucky enough to work on Beyoncé’s limited-edition Lemonade project, which included a 600-page coffee table book, rigid box, LP jacket and other printed pieces.
