In April 2011, Martha Levandowski took on the role of Administrative Director for the Coalition Protecting Auto No-Fault (CPAN). She has a broad background with over 30 years’ experience in business and marketing. After graduating from Western Michigan University, she began her career working for a multinational computer company, NCR, as an account manager where she exceeded sales expectations and was quickly promoted to world headquarters in an industry support and management trainee role. Since then, Martha has provided marketing, communications, and training support to business and institutional clients on behalf of several Michigan based companies, working with clients such as Meijer, Chrysler Financial, the State of Michigan, Michigan State University, Michigan Judicial Institute to name a few. For the 10 years prior to joining CPAN, Martha was responsible for marketing a 10-store supermarket chain, L&L Food Centers, where she planned and managed a million dollar marketing budget and oversaw all aspects of media production and placement, along with external media communications and public relations. Her public relations duties for the chain included planning and coordinating dozens of annual community events over the past decade, as well as fundraisers for local charities.
Throughout her career, Martha has been an active member of her church, school and community holding several board positions including Hospice of Lansing and Food Movers, part of the Greater Lansing Food Bank. She received the Michigan Parks and Recreation 2006 Community Service Award for her work with Lansing’s Potter Park Zoo, coordinating and hosting L&L Zoo Days for more than a decade.
Since joining CPAN, Martha has helped to facilitate the organization’s grass roots advocacy and community outreach. In addition to the daily operations of the organization, Martha is often seen representing the organization at various conferences and vendor exhibits, coordinating numerous town hall meetings across the state and delivering industry presentations. She works closely with CPAN’s Executive Committee and Board of Directors to ensure and promote the principles of the organization to uphold auto accident survivors’ rights to quality medical care and rehabilitation under the Michigan Auto No-Fault System.
