Marley Finnegan

New Business Development


Putting her love of socializing (and design) to good use, Marly’s parlayed her vivacious networking capabilities into an impactful role developing new business for HMR Designs. As the daughter of an art teacher she’s been encouraged by creativity from the start, making her a natural fit amongst our innovative team. “Every day is different, connecting to new clients is exciting and seeing their amazing events come to fruition is incredibly rewarding.” In her off-hours, the soon-to-be mom enjoys the endlessly pulsating Chicago restaurant scene, a befitting interest for the foodie seeing that she began her career in catering. In fact, she might just open a wine shop in the mountains one day, but for the time being Marley spends her days showing off our capabilities and production facility to potential clientele, paving the way for a bigger and better HMR.


What are some of the biggest rewards of your work?

Bringing new clients into the fold is what really makes me feel proud, of course, the dinners with partners and clientele at fabulous restaurants don’t hurt either.

What inspires you?

People. Every single person has a different way of seeing and enjoying things, and we’re in the business of enjoyment! I love getting to know what makes people happy and how we can be a part of that journey.

What do you love most about working at HMR?

The team. The amount of creativity surging through this building is like nowhere I have ever worked or been a part of before. It is inspiring to be involved with every single day.

What do you like to do when you are not at work?

I love to travel, eat and drink. I plan many of my trips around restaurants or some spectacular wine country. Wine is one of top three favorite “foods,” along with chocolate and guacamole.
