Phil-Mack Media is Growing

We are pleased to introduce everyone to a new Phil-Mack Media team member.  Marissa Salisbury joins us as a Digital Account Executive and will act as a sales support for our growing team.  With her degree in Russian Literature from the University of Colorado, Marissa has extensive experience in writing, editing and research.  These skills will assist in all the various blog writing and editing, web content and sales literature that PMM handles.  Marissa has a strong background in sales and relationship development from her years in the Financial Industry.

She began her financial career as a registered representative for Invesco Funds in Denver as well as a Investment Center representative and sales team member.  As the market grew, she expanded her skills by joining American Skandia, a variable annuity company based in Connecticut, in their brand new flagship Denver office.  Marissa worked as an Internal Wholesaler where she helped manage specific territories within both the Wirehouse and Financial Planner channels.  She gained experience marketing financial products to professionals through outbound territory management.  She also partnered with her external wholesaler presenting products face to face when attending sales meetings, and focused client meetings.  Relationship management was crucial to maintaining and building a successful territory.  One of her passions in sales is educating clients so that they can make the best decisions for their businesses.

Community Driven

Marissa took a hiatus from the financial industry to raise her family.  She began working again by teaching fitness and eventually running her own fitness business.  When her children began elementary school, she became involved in helping with the PTA.  Eventually she joined the Symonds School PTA as chair of Fundraising where she served three consecutive years.  In her time as Fundraising Chair, she was able to strengthen the fundraising component of the PTA by working with the existing programs and seeking out new areas of opportunity.  One of her biggest accomplishments has been introducing the annual Symonds Color Run.

With her background in fitness, Marissa saw this race as an opportunity to combine the necessity of fundraising with a community building event that promotes health and wellness.  Although the color run was a mostly turnkey fundraising program, Marissa took it a step further and created a corporate sponsorship component.  This unique component not only maximized profits but offered local businesses the opportunity to support a local non-profit elementary school.
Organizing this race created an avenue to connect with local business owners and show them the benefits of supporting a local cause.  It was a wonderful way to explore both digital and local advertising as well as  promoting race sponsors.  Marissa is proud that the Symonds Color Run will be held this spring for the 3rd year in a row.

Phil-Mack Media would like to formally welcome Marissa to our team.  We are excited to implement her expertise and variety of strengths to provide the best service to all of our clients.
