What We Achieved in 2014

“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” These wise words remind me of how important it is to reflect on the recent past in order to create new opportunities for the future.

I want to start out 2015 by reflecting on the meaningful events of 2014 here at King Media:

2014 began with a special King Media TV spot on the Super Bowl, featuring our Chief Security Officer, Ralphie King.

Williams Subaru, Lansing, MIWilliams Auto World, who we have been working with for decades, opened their new state of the art Subaru store, with a continued focus on service, selection, and community.

Tabor Hill: graphic design and media buying for outdoor billboard advertising by King MediaWe assisted Tabor Hill Winery and Restaurant with their co-sponsorship of the 75th Annual Senior PGA Championship in Benton Harbor, MI.

These projects, like all of 2014, were challenging, rewarding, and a lot of fun. We grew our clients’ business and, in turn, grew King Media. We started with a plan and worked through it all year long.

Our plan for 2015 is in place and we’ve started the year out strong. We’re looking to continue to grow, and we hope we can add your company or organization to our list of successes next year.
