CINCINNATI (December 17, 2018) – This holiday season Creative Media Agency Empower is celebrating the woman behind the man. While Santa brings joy to countless children across the globe one night a year, Mrs. Claus is the marketing powerhouse handling business the other 364 days a year.

Subscribe to The Confessions of Mrs. Claus on iTunes or Google Play to hear from Chief Elf Officer (CEO) Pipsie Twinkleton talk retail insights and top picks for her annual gift-guide while New Year’s Eve sleighs the 2019 female forecast and resolutions.
“Given Empower’s heritage of being founded by Mary Beth Price 33-years ago and the agency’s senior-level presence being 70 percent female, we were naturally inspired to create the untold story of Mrs. Claus,” said Shaun Ethier, chief client officer at Empower. “And with 44 percent of the population tuning into podcasts, The Confessions of Mrs. Claus series is the perfect medium to deliver some holiday cheer to our clients in a creative way that offers meaningful and relevant content,” he said.
“Mrs. Claus runs the workshop, handles Santa’s intense meet and greet schedule and collaborates with major brands to create Christmas campaigns,” explains Meghann Craig, senior director of marketing at Empower. “With about a billion years of experience working at North Pole Media and keeping the elves (and Santa) in check, she offers a wealth of knowledge and tips to young aspiring elves climbing their way up the evergreen ladder,” says Craig.
