A Letter From Our CMO

Jan 26, 2017 | 212 Articles, 212 Media Studios, Brand

A lot can happen in just over two years. When I was asked to join 212 Media Studios in the summer of 2014, I had no idea of the journey we’d be taking together.

As most of you know, we became 212 Media Studios in October of 2014. When I joined the team, one of my requirements was a complete rebrand and relaunch. My goals for the company included starting fresh with a new identity, a new outward focus on clients and customer service, and more strategic marketing efforts. Keeping the clients’ best interest in mind was crucial to our long-term success.

I envisioned a firm focused on providing strategic marketing plans and mission-critical solutions for clients. I wanted us to be known as the partner that delivers the most and provides the best revenue-generating solutions for clients. During the past two years, we’ve seen exciting changes. People have come and gone; we’ve lost some teammates who didn’t have the same vision or drive as us, but we’ve added to our remarkable talent base some of the best and brightest in the industry. I’m very proud of this team and what they accomplish on behalf of our clients.

To all of our clients, past and present: Thank you for your partnership with 212. You are the reason we get to do what we do as an organization. Through your partnerships we have been able to stay on the leading edge of creativity and deliverables, whether in video services, inbound marketing, strategic planning, graphic design, web app development, etc. Our list of services truly crosses the entire spectrum of marketing—which is not something we could have said when we started this journey.

So, what’s next? Continued growth and expansion! Starting with a new look and feel for our website. It is cleaner and simpler to navigate. We hope you take a look and send us your comments. We’ve always prided ourselves in sharing our knowledge and best practices—and with our blog, we provide a library filled with valuable tips and advice on all things related to marketing your business. I hope you are able to spend some time reading and learning from us; we’re happy to expand on any topic you find.

Yikes—I’ve broken my own rule! There are too many words in this message. But I’m excited to share about all we’ve done, and more importantly I wanted to say thank you. We couldn’t be here without you, our clients and partners. I’m proud of where we are and where we’re headed.

Thanks for a great year. We look forward to more time serving you!


David Phelps, Principal and CMO
