I have known Noelle for over nine years and worked with her for three of those nine years. You knew she was someone you could go to bounce ideas off of and to get guidance when you couldn’t see the correct path. Noelle is one of the most dedicated and determined professional women I know. She never sees a project as unattainable and will strive to make that project a success. She brings her experience from her personal trainer background and working with individuals to achieve their personal goals to her professional career where she works with the individual clients and employees to meet the goals of the project. I couldn’t be prouder of Noelle for starting her own social media company she enjoys her work and it shows in all of her projects.
Sharon use to be one of my clients during the time I worked with Noelle. Sharon continually supported and provided ideas for new marketing strategies to enhance her customer programs. She enjoys working with people and was appreciated and respected by everyone for her demeanor and business acumen. I enjoyed working with her tremendously.

I have been very fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with two of the two pillars of Wapatoome. Noelle Stehling served as an Account Manager on several high profile projects with me during my Mazda tenure, and Sharon and I worked side by side.
After several frustrating instances of mismatches with other Project Managers, Noelle dove in and rescued not only the projects, but the account. I quickly came to recognize her innate ability to sift through the clutter and find the gems we were both seeking. She came to every discussion prepared, organized, and full of ideas.
It’s rare to find someone in marketing who is genuinely more concerned about creating an excellent solution than “managing the client”. Though her background wasn’t in wholesale automotive marketing, her thirst for knowledge helped her quickly evolve from an advocate into a trusted and essential consultant. I hope I am lucky enough to get another opportunity to work beside Noelle.
The fact that Noelle and Sharon have joined forces in Wapatoome is serendipitous, to say the least. When I first met Sharon, she headed up Mazda’s owner retention program. Her knowledge of owner communications is unparalleled in the business, as time and increased exposure has taught me.
Sharon is a consummate team player, who recognizes that success can only be measured within the confines of the group’s accomplishments. She never let the others in our group flounder – her expertise drove us to better cooperate and made us all strive to create better products and processes. Her perspective provided the acid test to ensure our projects were ready for prime time.
Sharon eventually progressed to serve as a leader in the customer relations group. I’ve never seen anyone as legitimately interested in concern resolution as Sharon. Her empathy for our customers was sincere, and her approach to problem solving was creative and timely. Her concern was also evidenced by the care with which she supported those in her purview.
Collaboration, in its best sense, is a mechanism by which a team grows, projects flourish, and success is shared. Noelle and Sharon exemplify this philosophy. I have no doubt that they will continue to bring their A game to each new venture, and that their future clients will come to count on them as the consummate professionals they are. I wish them the best of luck.
