McDaniels Marketing announces the Retirement of Bruce Helling
Helling is retiring at the end of 2015.
is a consummate professional in every sense of the word. A long-time
employee at our agency (12 years)… his skills as a
marketer truly blossomed here, where he worked not only as an
account executive but as a highly valued media director. From media buys
to strategic planning, Bruce did it… and lived to regale us with his many
adventures in print, broadcast and business development sales. We will
miss his colorful stories and wonderful humor! In addition, the stooges
will miss this Curly (and his cat posters). We wish you all the best in
your retirement, Bruce!

are many things that prepared Brie for the world of marketing(she graduated with honors in
communications and sociology), we think
her competitive spirit and commitment to success came long before
that from playing sports with her brothers. She calls it her
best childhood memory; we call it hands-on training. Over the last
10 years, she has put these skills to the test, successfully
navigating the waters of Varage Sale and the marketing teams of
several major corporations. And she came out victorious in both
positive feedback and profitability! So when you're ready to see how
you can get the most out of your marketing budget, give Brie a call.
She'll set aside her US Weekly (a girl has to keep up on the news),
take a pre-game stretch and give a loud cracking of all her
joints (it's a talent few can do), and deliver a plan that meets
both your short- and long-term goals (because
we're all about the big picture and making the most strategic
investment for you).
Goodwill of Central Illinois will hold the 5th Annual Recycle Your Style Contest. High school students within Goodwill’s territory are encouraged to donate their used clothing. The high school that donates the most pounds of clothing will win a SMART Board donated by Bradfield’s Computer Supply. The contest runs from October 1st through October 31st. “This has been a very successful campaign for us,” said Bob Parkhurst, Goodwill Vice President. “We are grateful for Bradfield’s Computer Supply’s donation of a SMART Board each year. That prize really heats up the competition among the high schools.” Donations of items other than clothing are encouraged, but only clothing will count toward the contest. Only high schools are eligible, but others can participate including teachers, family and school supporters. Donors need to tell the Goodwill donation attendant which high school they are supporting for their donation to be counted. Donations can be made at any of Goodwill’s nine stores o
The Pekin Women's Leadership Network empowers women to become effective leaders by providing essential skills and strategies for professional and personal growth. A variety of carefully tailored programs are designed to support women in all phases of their careers. Why is this program needed? Although women have made great strides in achieving equality, a leadership gap continues. In 2013, 20 women serve in the Senate, and only 78 women serve in the House of Representative. Overall, women hold 98, or 18.3% of the 525 seats in the 113th U.S congress. Locally, the statistics are even worse, with only 1 woman serving on the Pekin City Council. The business world does not fare much better, with only 22 women CEO's in the Fortune 500. Our focus is on helping young women develop the skills and abilities necessary to succeed and flourish in their chosen career paths. Sessions scheduled for the 2013-2014 series include: November 1st - Women in Politics - Rep. Cheri Busto
