We believe that strong businesses rise with a strong community.
That’s why we dedicate time to organizations that support those in need, build stronger businesses and improve the health of our area’s economic development.
Northern Medina County Chamber Alliance
As a member since 2007, we’ve realized that as a business and as leaders, what we get out of our membership is relative to what we’re willing to put in. Our involvement, leading the programming and marketing committees, as well as serving on the board for 8 years, has produced invaluable friendships and advocates.
Medina County Economic Development Corporation
Proximity Marketing’s active involvement with the Medina County Economic Development Corporation (MCEDC) gives us a deeper understanding of the current needs of our business community – and has even helped shape and improve our service offerings to clients. Our participation in MCEDC has been truly enriching because we immersed ourselves in the organization’s mission, including programming and workforce development. Proximity’s president, Mark Priebe, is board VP, and incumbent 2023 board president.
Made in Medina County
Made in Medina County is a county-wide collaboration, including the City of Brunswick, Medina, Wadsworth and various other organizations like city chambers of commerce, Leadership Medina County and Medina County Economic Development Corporation. Proximity Marketing played a critical role in launching the inaugural Made in Medina County Expo in 2014/2015 – which showcases local manufacturing and its importance to the area’s economic health. Our team was proud to develop the initiative’s website and participate on the steering committee.
Leadership Medina County
Always advocates of strengthening our teams’ leadership skills and applying that knowledge to improve county resources and businesses – we jumped at the opportunity to participate in the Leadership Medina County program. Several team members have graduated from the signature program, while also participating in committees, attending events and hosting Leadership classes.
Brunswick Inclusive Playground
Because Proximity Marketing calls Brunswick, Ohio home, we’re committed to helping this community thrive, and become an even more attractive place to live and work. To that end, we’re assisting the City of Brunswick with a new inclusive playground initiative. Proximity Marketing is creating a website and other marketing to support awareness and fundraising efforts.
In addition to business community and leadership groups, our team finds ways to give back with their time and talents. From creating blessing bags for the homeless and crocheting blankets for Knitting for Cancer to organizing Brunswick Business Park food drives and stuff-the-bus events – we enjoy bringing people together for good causes.
