Nancy Vince

President

Nancy’s true life passion is entrepreneurship and service. A former owner of a direct marketing and advertising firm for 15 years, Nancy dove head-on into dot com mania in 1998 with a visionary new concept for the craft community - an online wholesale art marketplace. IndieMe™ is Nancy’s resulting labor of love, merging her technical skill with the creative innovation needed for craft buyers to do business more efficiently.

Says Nancy on her business vision, "I love my work and am never bored! I know IndieMe™ is making a huge impact on the arts community because we’re meeting a need that was previously ignored. As our company grows, I will continue to place the feedback and recommendations of our artists and retailers at the top of my agenda."
