In October of 2015, Lennie Gunder was sitting at the pinnacle of life transition. Just 3 short months prior, her father (and biggest cheerleader) had passed away. Just a few weeks prior, her 17.5+ year corporate career at The Denver Post / Digital First Media had come to a glorious end. Lennie found herself in the middle of the mission’s field, in a remote area of Cambodia. Her entire world had been turned upside down, and that’s precisely when God began to speak.
God reminded Lennie that she had 3 contract job offers within 24 hours of leaving her corporate career. He showed her the skills that had been copiously developed and refined from her years at the newspaper. He reminded her of her love of overseas missions work, and how she used to bank up all her vacation time just to take 1 missions trip per year.
And then He said her, “I need you mobile, transportable and flexible” so that she could more diligently support overseas missions work. In fact, He said that she was to take 2-3 missions trip per year. “Wow”, Lennie marveled to herself, “2-3 trips a year? That’s quite an upgrade!”
. . . And then came the light bulb moment . . .
. . . Lennie was to open her own business that would focus on everything she had learned in her newspaper career: brand marketing, event production, graphic design and project management. Since it was a work-from-home model, it would afford her to work from literally anywhere in the world, even from the missions field! And, a portion of the company proceeds would fund overseas missions.
Strategic Creations LLC was formally launched just 3 short months later, on January 4, 2016, (Lennie’s father’s birthday), in loving memory of the man who believed she could do all things. In the first year of operation of Strategic Creations, Lennie took 3 missions trips extending across Cambodia, Thailand, Norway and Rwanda Africa! Since its inception, the Strategic Creations team has built a solid base of 61 clients located in multiple cities across the United States! And to this day, a portion of Strategic Creations’ monthly proceeds continue to fund overseas missions efforts and orphans in 3rd world countries.
As Founder and CEO of Strategic Creations, Lennie Gunder brings more than 25 years of experience in advertising and marketing, design, strategy, management, event planning, project management and operations. Her vivacious personality coupled with her extensive industry experience and impeccable follow-through offers you the best of both worlds: a personal touch with professionalism you can trust.
Lennie is a graduate of the University of New Hampshire. There, she earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Communications, with a minor in Business Administration.
Lennie and her husband Peter reside in Parker, Colorado. They are most passionate about their personal relationship with Jesus, music, travel and missions work.
