The Southwest Detroit Business Association has relied on the professional services of Marx Layne & Company for the past eight years. We have also called upon them for counsel when other community leaders have come to us for advice. That kind of public relations support requires a solid understanding of our mission and the diverse stakeholders we proudly serve. Their team of industry professionals has the knowledge, expertise and relationships that help us meet and exceed our communications goals.

I can’t thank you enough for the remarkable job your firm did telling my story. My decision to use public relations was a good one. Contracting with Marx Layne was a better one. Your knowledge of who to contact – and when to contact them – was far reaching and extremely effective. David and Lauren were always just a phone call away and David was by my side for the initial crunch. No amount of advertising could have driven more traffic to my store. We experienced a positive outcome from a negative situation.

Neighborhood Service Organization (NSO) greatly enjoys a beneficial partnership with Marx Layne & Company. Its dedicated and responsive team has become an extension of ours. They have done an outstanding job elevating awareness about our life-changing and supportive programs and fundraising initiatives that positively impact the lives of our community’s most vulnerable neighbors. Personally, as the president and CEO of a nonprofit organization, it is important for me to be visible before our key audiences. Marx Layne has been instrumental in ensuring that my position is highlighted through diverse media opportunities and also by positioning me for awards such as the Detroit Free Press’ 2014 Shining Light Eleanor Josaitis Unsung Hero Award. From helping to coordinate the groundbreaking and ribbon cutting ceremony for the NSO Bell Building project to securing media attendance at press conferences and other events, writing and designing informative and visually stunning newsletters and more, Marx Layne truly has been a blessing and true partner to NSO.

I have had experiences with several PR agencies around the country and I can sincerely tell you that they are the best of the best in this market. Marx Layne has also played an important role in my firm’s national branding initiatives.

They are honest, accountable and operate with high integrity. I strongly endorse Marx Layne.
