ABOUT US
Mary Jo Tomasini
CEO


Mary Jo started Competitive Edge in 1993, working alone in a store basement. She now has about 20 employees working in a two story office building overlooking Lake Michigan. Mary Jo’s success is driven by her belief in high quality customer service and going above and beyond customer expectations. Her vision to develop a successful business in her industry and community has gained her numerous awards and national recognition including being named one of the "Top 50 Places to Work in the Promotional Products Industry". Her desire and dedication to give back to the community is evident by volunteering her services and expertise to a long list of organizations. In addition to being a successful business person, Mary Jo still finds time for volunteer work, fundraising events, and first-hand involvement and classroom instruction with Junior Achievement.

Mary Jo lives in St. Joseph with her husband Fred Malawski.
 
Paula Wygonik
President


Before coming to Competitive Edge, Paula worked in the Detroit area as a Director of Sales & International for a leading firm in consumer promotion media solutions. As Competitive Edge continued to grow, an Executive VP position soon became available and Paula’s history in management and marketing fit the description. In 2004, she and her family made the move to St. Joseph to be closer to family and work alongside her sister, Mary Jo. Paula has 20+ years of marketing, sales and operations experience. She brings to Competitive Edge creativity, strategic solutions, and positive energy. Paula has a desire to develop and grow relationships with each and every client, and does so with her ‘Customers First’ commitment.

Paula lives in Stevensville with her husband Tom and their two children, Jillian and Nick.

Her new-found passion for the promotional products industry helped her launch a successful sales career with Competitive Edge, developing into a dedicated leader for the sales team.
