Led by CEO and Founder Kevin Armata, Windsor Marketing Group has been recognized for championing an environmentally and socially responsible business model.

"Families are important to us at Windsor Marketing Group," said CEO and Founder Kevin J. Armata. "Along with my own family we have several other families with multiple family members working at the company. I am proud to be recognized by the CBIA as they celebrate family businesses such as Windsor Marketing Group here in Connecticut."

Windsor Marketing Group is an innovative in-store marketing agency that creates, produces, and delivers shopper marketing programs that inspire and influence in-store buying patterns. The company was founded in 1976 and has grown to over 120 associates serving over 3,000 clients including some of the largest retailers in the U.S.

During the recession in 2008, Armata was faced with potentially laying off 20 percent of the Windsor Marketing Group workforce, negatively impacting both the company and community. Instead, he re-purposed his team to help complete construction on the company's new facility in Suffield, CT.

The construction project offered job security and galvanized the WMG workforce, a team that is now working out of a state-of-the-art 160,000 square-foot facility they helped to build.

The socially-responsible innovation earned mention in the 2013 business book "Conscious Capitalism."

The Connecticut Business and Industry Associations is the largest business organization in the state of Connecticut and serves as an advocate for the general business and industry community. The organizations' goal is to promote a state business climate that is globally competitive.

Windsor Marketing Group was recognized at the "Celebrate Connecticut's Family Businesses" celebration held on Nov. 12 at the Aqua Turf in Southington.
