Laura Valentini

Director Of Finance & HR

I’ve been with Apex since 2014, and this has been my first professional experience in the promo industry, which I’ve discovered is incredibly fun yet challenging. My previous work experience in both for profit and non-profit work set me up well to understand the many different facets of promo and allowed me to jump in and support a growing company.

I was born and raised in Lancaster County, and am happy to still call it home, now living here with my husband, Mike, 2 children, and rambunctious dog. When we’re not working, you can find us exploring new places and enjoying any and all outdoor activities.

What is your favorite food?

Toss up between good BBQ and pizza.  

What is your favorite book?

The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah, but discovering new favorites every day.

What do you enjoy doing when you aren’t working?

With young kids, I’m typically trying to find exciting new activities to burn off their copious amounts of energy, but I also enjoy soccer, skiing, hiking, running, cooking and reading.  

What is the place you would most like to travel to?

Morocco, Iceland and Switzerland  

What is your favorite drink?

Coffee. The kind with a lot of caffeine.  

What is your favorite thing about working at Apex?

Definitely the people I work with, which help drive growth and positive change every day.   

What is your favorite sports team?

Manchester United & Indianapolis Colts. Obligated through marriage to cheer for the Philadelphia Flyers.
