Valerie Hayman Sklar

President of Corporate Specialties LLC ~ A Promotional Marketing Firm For B2B, Multi-Family & Dance Studio Markets

Hello! I'm Valerie Hayman Sklar, owner of Detroit-based Corporate Specialties. Since 1997, I've been working with business owners, corporate marketers, meeting and event planners, and HR pros all across the country on promotional marketing programs—from customer loyalty programs and tradeshow campaigns to employee incentives and business gifts, to name a few. I believe there should never be one-size-fits all promotions, so I take a comprehensive, consultative approach to developing promotional campaigns. This has made Corporate Specialties the go-to resource for distinctive, memorable merchandise programs—not promotional clutter. In addition to working with corporate marketers, I have vast experience working with apartment communities and property management companies. The Apartment Boutique, powered by Corporate Specialties, allows me to put this knowledge to work creating promotions specifically tailored for the multi-family market. I also have a passion for dance, which led to the creation of Dance Studio Boutique, powered by Corporate Specialties. Through this division, I'm able to bring much-needed marketing insight to this traditionally underserved micro-niche. Whether you're a corporate marketer, property manager or dance studio owner, I hope you think of me and my Corporate Specialties team as your promotional marketing brain trust. Our goal is to educate, engage and empower—and give you fresh promotions that get results.
