Arrow Marketing, Media & Consulting kicked off its first official meeting in March of 2016. A shift in the marketing world and a better work/life balance led us to where we are today. This is a deeply rooted core value for us because we know first-hand how frustrating it is to miss out on doing something you love for another meeting that could have been an email. As we watched the media landscape rapidly change, we saw a need for honest, client focused marketing. This organization doesn’t fight change, we embrace it, accept it is an inevitable part of our business environment and maximize all opportunities for our clients. We prioritize our clients’ success above all else & our goal is to enhance client satisfaction, build strong relationships and be the consistent, strategic partner for their business. We are more than just their “marketing and advertising team,” we are an extension of their brand and their company. We treat their business as if it were our own. We are in our 6th year and although it hasn’t all been easy, we would do it all over again. We are a team, we support each other in every way we can, and we are better because of it. Reliability is possibly Arrow Marketing’s most valuable trait. Put simply, we do what we say and strive to be the most reliable person in the room. We take initiative and action to pursue client goals and complete the tasks at hand. It’s in our company’s DNA. We have 3 partners, Shannon Storozyszyn, Lexi Smith, and Nicole Howell, plus three amazing employees that make it all work, Kerry Dixon, Catherine Trennepohl, and Christina Wilkerson.
