Most company owners or CEOs might not sweat the small stuff in the daily operation of their company, but Connie makes the details a priority because she realizes that’s where relationships start and how they successfully develop. Connie is involved behind the scenes with each and every one of Mantooth’s clients—even personally commenting on Facebook posts. It is this individual attention and loyalty that has helped build Mantooth–one relationship at a time–into a successful company that was recognized by BizWest as one of their “100 Fastest Growing Companies in Northern Colorado” and 2014’s “Small Business of the Year” by the Fort Collins Chamber of Commerce.
Connie’s passion and commitment to the community provided the foundation for Mantooth when she started the company in 1995. She has been able to develop a niche of not only creating a marketing plan based on relationships with the community, but taking the plan to new levels through grassroots efforts and community outreach programs. She’s done it with great enthusiasm and with Mantooth’s Boston Terrier mascots at her side, Georgie and Lily.
While at the helm of Mantooth, Connie has received many honors. She was voted a “Woman of Influence” and “Outstanding Mentor of the Year” by the Northern Colorado Women of Distinction, among others.
When she’s not manning Mantooth, Connie likes to:
• Work in the gardens around her home
• Try new restaurants while traveling
• Read a good mystery poolside, preferably surrounded by palm trees
• Play 18 holes with her husband in the cart, with more pars/birdies than bogies on the scorecard
• Enjoy her favorite food – Mexican
