Patti Holmes Knott brings 40 plus years of experience working in direct mail marketing and serves as the Chief Operating Officer of TRNC. She has been one of the key players in advancing the success and expansion of the company since she joined the firm in 2018.
Her leadership and insight led to strategic staff hiring and reorganization, setting the stage for significant company growth as well as the recent acquisition of new clients.
Working in concert with the Director of Account Management and the Creative Director, Patti manages priorities across all clients to ensure on-time mailings and provide creative input on strategy and design for client projects.

Patti ultimately rose to executive level positions, directing creative strategies, production coordination, and managing staff.
Over the years she has helped raise millions of dollars for both political and charitable clients including Paralyzed Veterans of America, Reagan Ranch, Easter Seals, Hillsdale College, Faith and Freedom Coalition, and National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund.
