Fisherman Wins Pinstripe Award

Amanda Fisherman

Ad 2 Tampa Bay president, Amanda Fisherman, received the 2012 Pinstripe Service Excellence Award at the American Advertising Federation – Tampa Bay Chapter’s ADDY Awards held on February 28 at the Tampa Theatre. Presented annually by past recipients, the award recognizes the Ad 2 member who demonstrates the most outstanding contributions to the organization, the advertising industry, and the Tampa Bay community.

“Amanda has been an amazing asset to Ad 2 Tampa Bay and to our local advertising community since her first days out of school. She has shown excellent leadership, superior dedication, and genuine passion in her contributions of all kinds. Most notably, she has championed one cause above all others – the growth and development of the community’s local students and recent graduates. Through tireless dedication to the programs within Ad 2 including AdTour and the Campus Road Show, and her overall leadership of the club, she has grown what amounts to an incubator for our local talent,” as noted in one nomination.

“Amanda’s accomplishments have been impressive,” said Ginger Reichl, president of Pinstripe Marketing and former Ad 2 president. “I also have a soft spot for advertising education, and as an agency owner always searching for talent, I appreciate her dedication to supporting the next generation of professionals.”

Fisherman is an account associate at Bayshore Solutions.

Legal Marketing Association Spotlight on Tampa Bay

Legal Marketing Tampa at Painting with a Twist

The Tampa Bay City Group of the Legal Marketing Association’s Southeastern Chapter was selected as the spotlight in the latest newsletter. I am so proud to be a part of this organization and to see the growth we’ve experienced over the last several years. Our leaders are among the best in the country and the excitement coming from this chapter proves it. If you’re interested in becoming a member, please visit the LMA site or contact me for more information!

 

CITY GROUP SPOTLIGHT:TAMPA BAY

This year the Tampa Bay City Group continues to focus on substantive programs, networking opportunities, and community service. We collaborated with the Orlando City Group to present programs by Tracy LaLonde of Akina on “Ten Tips for Effective Pitch Meetings,” LMASE circuit speaker David Freeman on “Secrets of the Masters,” and a video-conferenced ACC Value Challenge panel discussion.

Additional programs featured Emily Thall of Debevoise & Plimpton (sponsored by Dave Whiteside and Hubbard One) on “How to Better Manage Your Firm’s Experience,” and four-time Emmy Award winner Ren Scott’s presentation on “Using Video Effectively and Maximizing Your Web Marketing.”

We also drew upon the knowledge and experience of our own City Group members for programming. Kate Barth, Public Relations Manager at Carlton Fields, prepared the questions and moderated a media roundtable; and Ginger Reichl, President of Pinstripe Marketing, will co-present our November program on “Making the Most of Your LinkedIn Professional Profiles.”  We also continued our practice of holding a post-LMA Annual Meeting roundtable discussion for members to share information and best practices learned at the conference with members that were not able to attend.

Spring, summer, and holiday networking events for the year were planned to benefit organizations in our community. The Spring Networking Social at Painting With A Twist was a huge hit, and both financial and “wish list” contributions were made to SPCA Tampa Bay.

The Summer Social was held at the Tampa Bay History Museum and hundreds of school supplies were collected for the benefit of inner city students at Sawgrass Lake Elementary. At our Holiday Social in December, we will again collect donations for Toys For Tots.

However, the true highlight of the year has been the many new colleagues who have attended our meetings. As part of our ongoing initiative to recruit new members, we will again participate in the “Ultimate Mixer” with other Tampa Bay marketing professionals this fall.

Pinstripe Marketing president presents Building the Brand marketing seminar for Women in Architecture Tampa Bay Chapter

Pinstripe Marketing president, Ginger Reichl, was the presenter at today’s Women in Architecture meeting held at the West Tampa Branch Library.

Reichl’s presentation, Building the Brand, focused on low-cost/no-cost marketing in response to an increased number of architects forced to open their own firms during the last three years.

“Many architects have been laid off from the more established firms . Construction is down, particularly in Florida, so times are tough for these professionals,” said Reichl. “Many of them never planned on being an entrepreneur and owning their own firm, but there are few alternatives for them until the design market rebounds. Marketing is a critical component of business development and we’re happy to share some ideas to get them started.”

Reichl’s presentation features an overview of defining a brand, setting a marketing budget, RFP/RFQ responses, and marketing tactics including direct marketing, advertising, events, public relations, web, email and social media.

Reichl is president of Pinstripe Marketing, a Tampa Bay marketing agency that specializes in promoting professional services firms. A Keystone Partner and Allied Member of AIA Tampa Bay, Pinstripe has helped architects, engineers and other professionals navigate their businesses into profitable practices for more than 12 years. She also serves on the board of directors of several other trade associations, professional organizations and local non-profits.
