Mara Letica Saad’s experiences are unique, remarkable and in many ways, reflect her wonderful family’s success story. Mara was born in Germany as the family journeyed toward America and settled in Greenville, Michigan where her father began to work toward his vision for Letica Corporation. Mara earned a bachelors degree in history from The University of Michigan and then traveled west to Seattle University to study law remaining in Washington for several years working as a prosecutor and a commercial litigator. She returned to join the family business and after 20 years Mara continues to successfully balance many roles in the company. Throughout her life she has had a strong interest in her family’s birthplace, Croatia, and was actively involved in Croatia’s independence movement. With her father, she organized a group of attorneys in the U.S. to aid and supervise the 1990 elections. Her efforts were recognized by President George H.W. Bush with a nomination to be Ambassador to Croatia.
