Continental Girbau Welcomes New Marketing Associates

OSHKOSH, Wis. — Commercial laundry equipment manufacturer Continental Girbau Inc. reports it recently strengthened its marketing department with the addition of Graphic Designer Carissa Derge and Web and Multimedia Designer Matthew Liefke.

Derge orchestrates a number of design functions within Continental’s marketing department. She is charged with “creating visual concepts to communicate ideas that inspire, inform and captivate Continental consumers.” Her many responsibilities include the development of advertisements, sales tools, brochures, logos and newsletters.

She joined the company with three years of professional marketing and design experience and most recently served as marketing coordinator at the Thelma Sadoff Center for the Arts in Fond du Lac, Wis.

“I enjoy Continental’s family-style atmosphere,” she said. “I am excited about joining the creative team here and look forward to learning even more about laundry systems.”

Derge earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in graphic design/photography from the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee in 2013.

As web and multimedia designer, Liefke assists in the production and editing of multimedia communications, including video, websites and interactive contents. In doing so, he works closely with end users, distributors and Continental team members.

“What I enjoy about Continental is how everybody is treated like family,” says Liefke, who has studied computer science and psychology at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh. “Everybody knows your name and always has a smile.”
