Marti Northover

Accounting and Human Resources Manager marti@vreeland.com

Marti is a seasoned finance and operations professional with more than 20 years of experience in budgeting and financial reporting, systems management and logistics.

So you’re a numbers wiz?

I love numbers and making sure accounts, budgets and financials are all in balance. But I like the people side of things too. My 20+ years of experience includes both financial and personnel management.

What about the creative part of working with an agency like Vreeland? Is that a big change for you?

Not really. I spent 10 years at an agency in Massachusetts, and that involved daily contact with both the strategic and creative teams as well as the clients. During my time there we worked with a large number of clients from various business sectors throughout the country.

You also owned and operated a historic inn for some time, right?

Yes, that was an adventure. We had heard that the inn was haunted, but that didn’t deter us from moving forward with the purchase. During our time there, though, we did experience some interesting events. Like the time I closed up the inn for the night, turned off all the lights and locked the doors, but while walking to my car I happened to look back and saw that every single light in the place was on. Hard to explain, but generally harmless.

Marti earned a master’s degree from Clark University and graduated summa cum laude with a B.A. from Framingham State College. What do you like to do in your free time?

I enjoy travelling, entertaining and cooking for friends and family. I like reading, gardening and boating as well as taking care of our cat and my chickens (we always have fresh eggs). And I love listening to my husband and son perform. They are both talented musicians.
