With a career in advertising spanning four decades, I established Martin Communications, Inc., in 1993 to provide clients with marketing, advertising and media strategy/buying services based on a simple premise of faster, better and more cost effective than competitors. The spare bedroom, three-legged kitchen table headquarters launched a business whose on-going success with an ever-increasing staff is the result of long-standing, valued relationships with both clients and those who provide us with subcontracted services.
Joining Martin Communications in August 2001 as a part-time office assistant, Barb’s high attention to detail, accuracy and creative problem solving created a natural path to greater responsibilities. Her expanded involvement moved her into client services, then to media buyer and to her current role as Vice President. Our clients’ reliance on her for responsiveness and organization elevated her to an account executive position for two of the agency’s largest clients. Additionally, she serves as the agency’s CFO.
