ITHACA, NY –  Starting 2016 off big, local business, Communiqué Design & Marketing, Inc. celebrates a huge milestone –  their 25th year anniversary.

Founded by President and principal manager, Laurie Linn, Communiqué Design & Marketing, Inc. is a full service integrated marketing firm located in the South Hill Business Campus. Linn celebrates this major milestone with her “fabulous” team.

“It is because of their diverse expertise, talent and dedication that Communique has been able to excel in the field of marketing for 25 years. A lot has changed in the communications sector over the years”, states Linn, “and I am proud that we have been at the fore-front of innovation since day-one.”

Communique opened its doors in 1991 in a small office in the Dewitt Mall with two people.  “We have survived through three recessions and diversification of the workforce, and we continue to grow market share locally, regionally, and nationally.  We have so much to be thankful for and to celebrate”, says Linn.

“What separates us from the competition is that the company started out as an integrated-marketing firm when the concept was still cutting-edge. I was a big believer long before the market understood the power of this new marketing methodology.” The company has grown from there, working with hundreds of clients creating a strong position in the market place.

Linn attributes the company’s success to the relationships they have with their clients. “People like working with us. We exceed expectations, and we also make work fun.  Client relationships are at the key to everything we do and we are appreciative of these relationships.”

“We also secured our Women Business Enterprise (WBE) certification from the New York State Department of Economic Development”, she continues. “This has opened doors for working with state agencies, the SUNY system and other businesses who understand the importance of diversity in the workforce.”

Communiqué plans on celebrating its silver anniversary by giving back. They will be hosting quarterly “thank you” receptions for their valued clients, partners, and colleagues. Communiqué…celebrating a big thing, in a big way.
