What We’re Thankful For This Year

November 25, 2015


It’s been a great year at The Martin Group, from acquiring AMDG Public Affairs, now known as Martin Davison Public Relations, to the influx of new hires and earning the title of the sixth fastest growing company in WNY in the Buffalo Business First, we have A LOT to be thankful for this year. Without our talented TMG groupies and collaborative and creative clients, TMG would not be able to accomplish all that it does everyday.

Since tomorrow is Thanksgiving, we feel it’s appropriate to list what each of our teammates are thankful for:

I’m forever thankful for a beautiful, healthy, happy family.
-Krista Sobon, Media Planner/Buyer

– Jim Lynch, Vice President, Media Director

I’m thankful that this was pretty much a snow-free November! (knock on wood…)

I’m thankful for all of the incredible life changes in 2015: I got married, got a new job, and created some unforgettable memories along the way! Not to mention, the overwhelming love and support my husband and I experienced from family and friends throughout our wedding festivities truly showed how fortunate we are, and I’m grateful everyday for that!
Kailey Kolozsvary, Public Relations Specialist

To keep up with the TMG tradition (thanks Christie!), I’m thankful to be welcoming an even smaller human into the world in May, 2016. My wife and I couldn’t be happier to be home in Western New York, and we’re excited about the next steps of building a family out in East Aurora. Thanks to Martin Davison PR and The Martin Group for a great 2015, and here’s to bigger and better things in 2016…
– John Jiloty, Social Media Director
