NEW YORK, May 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Verve™, the industry leader in location-powered mobile marketing, announced its continued expansion in the Detroit market.
Verve believes in the importance of investing in Detroit, a city that has made landmark high-tech leaps in the past two years — Detroit-based high-tech jobs across industries have surged 26% since 2015, according to Forbes. Opening its new office in Southfield, Michigan, effective June 1st, Verve's team will further bolster its regional sales and client services, serving brands and advertisers as the city continues to drive economic growth through technology innovation. This will be Verve's seventh sales office worldwide.
Verve has promoted Christina Shinsky to Group Director of the company's Detroit office. With roots for years in Michigan, and more than a half-decade in Detroit-based digital and marketing roles, Shinsky will now lead Verve's focus on deepening Verve's relationship with the region and expanding its portfolio, which includes clients such as Ford, Fiat Chrysler, General Motors, and The Mars Agency. Verve has also hired additional sales directors to develop and expand its presence in and around Detroit.
"We are excited to further our growth in Detroit and the surrounding area," said Kevin Arrix, Chief Revenue Officer at Verve. "Christina's leadership and the ongoing work of the entire Detroit team are building on important opportunities throughout the region. We know from recent news that automotive and all the important industries that are revitalizing Detroit have turned their eyes to the future. Innovation drives them, as it drives us, and this expansion marks the opportunity to help Detroit's stakeholders bring world-class location-aware mobile creative to brands and consumers."
Shinsky advances to the new position at Verve with extensive digital media experience. A veteran of digital advertising, she has worked in both agencies and sales to build integrated digital and mobile strategies for her clients, including top brands across Automotive, Retail, CPG, and QSR.
Verve's expansion in Detroit is a sign of the company's overall growth. In 2016 alone, Verve doubled its workforce and the company posted revenues topping $100 million.
