Member of the Public Relations Society of America – Detroit Chapter – Programming Committee
The Y2K bug didn’t scare Erin. Recognizing a gap in the market, she chose the year 2000 to launch her own PR company after a successful career at several leading agencies and a growing family at home. What started as one of the first woman-owned PR companies serving Detroit’s transportation industry, has blossomed into a thriving, customer-focused business that helped clients survive the economic downturn and now is accelerating with them into the future. Yes, her name is on the building and because of it she doesn’t just talk about doing business right – she demands it. Erin was recently named one of the Top Women in PR by PR News.
I’m an eternal optimist. As a business owner, I have to be. But to succeed, you have to invest that positive attitude into your performance and the success of your clients by anticipating their needs, building relationships and continually expanding capabilities and expertise. As much as I’ve enjoyed TMG’s first 15 years, I can’t wait for what tomorrow will bring.
A Jack, er John, of all trades, John is well suited for being TMG’s COO. Whether it’s client relations, financial acumen or fixing the FAX machine, John’s your man. A true multitasker, his idea of roughing it combines two favorite activities – hunting and golf – when one of his patented “long-john” drives goes astray and he’s forced to scrounge with squirrels for an MIA Titleist.
The diversity of our clients and their needs challenge me to not only look for new ideas, but also how we can apply our expertise and experience to fit their needs as they continue to evolve.
