Celebrating 2011’s Michigan 50 Companies to Watch

The staff of MessageMakers had a great time at the seventh annual Michigan Celebrates Small Business event, held April 28 at the Lansing Center. At the event, MessageMakers was honored as one of the 2011 “Michigan 50 Companies to Watch,” an awards program sponsored by the Edward Lowe Foundation and presented by Michigan Celebrates Small Business.

“It was such a thrill to see MessageMakers recognized as one of 50 Businesses to Watch,” said Matt Penniman, writer for MessageMakers. “We’re in great company with other small businesses who are adding new jobs to Michigan’s economy, creating enormous value, and participating intensely in the life of our communities.”

“We’ve built long-term relationships with our clients through listening, creative work, and focusing on achieving measurable results—helping them make a difference,” says Terry Terry, president of MessageMakers. “This award is a tribute to our talented staff. It’s been great that we’ve been able to achieve so many of our dreams—and we look forward to the road ahead.”

MessageMakers was honored to be one of eight Michigan 50 awardees included in a video shown at the event. Here's a tiny piece of the interview we provided that didn't end up in that video.
