June 1 marks the 15th anniversary of the founding of The Martin Group. Since starting in 2001, we’ve grown from a one-person operation to our current staff of more than 50 employees. We’ve seen milestones such as the opening of our Rochester office in 2014, the acquisition of Travers Collins in 2014 and the formation of our affiliate, Martin Davison Public Relations, which just hit its first birthday in May. As we celebrate a decade and a half in business, we’re looking back (check out TMG’s first website from 2005 here) and ahead.
Major Company Accomplishments: In August 2015, TMG was named the sixth-fastest-growing company in Western New York by Buffalo Business First. So far this year, TMG received 14 awards as part of the national Healthcare Advertising Awards, won six ADDY awards, celebrated two employees that have enjoyed more than 10 years with the company (Creative Director, Dave Riley; Senior Vice President | Managing Director of Buffalo, Lisa Strock) and named Lisa Strock and Vice President | Executive Creative Director Dion Pender as Managing Directors of Buffalo and Rochester, respectively.
Highlights for 2016: Bringing together all of the Buffalo Groupies in our dedicated and thoughtfully designed creative space at 620 Main Street and, of course, continuing to offer the best branding, advertising and public relations services to the best clients in Western New York and beyond. Hopefully, cruising in our TMG company car is in store for 2017. (How about it, Tod?)
