Mary Brophy launched Bizzbag in 2008 for trendsetting brides, entrepreneurs and business professionals who want to flaunt their personal brand as a style or personality statement. Her mission was to create premium tote, clutch, messenger, computer and portfolio bags that allowed the savvy chic to merge fashion with function. Anyone can now display their business or personal brand while networking in the boardroom, walking the boardwalk or relaxing at the beach with or without a surfboard.

Prior to Bizzbag, Mary acquired her entrepreneurial spirit from her mother while working in her family business which issued truck permits via facsimile. Mary went on to become a high achiever in sales and sales management positions and working with small businesses in marketing roles.
