If there’s a harder working account team than the members of Marx Layne & Co., show me.  From top to bottom, the Marx Layne team has showed that hard work pays dividends.

The partners, vice presidents, senior account executives, digital architects, account executives, account assistants and interns have kicked it into high gear in this still relatively new 2011.

A team recently returned from the Chicago Auto Show, where we were representing Panasonic Automotive Systems of America and are proud of their launch of the new Fender Premium Audio System in the new line of Volkswagen vehicles.

Our team worked the early morning hours last week with Verizon to successfully launch the new version of Apple’s iPhone 4.  Gathering photographs, video and interviews, Marx Layne associates were able to deliver results for Verizon Wireless.

In Metro Detroit, the Marx Layne team successfully completed the seventh annual Motown Winter Blast.  Held in and around Campus Martius Park in Downtown Detroit, the event features value-conscious, winter-themed activities for children of all ages, including marshmallow roasting, a snow slide, ice-skating and more.

This year’s event also featured the best ever local musical and entertainment acts on three different stages with genres appealing to all tastes and ages.

The Marx Layne team also put on the first annual “Touching Communities, Touching Lives” collegiate ice sculpture competition hosted by the MGM Grand Detroit at the Grand Garden.

Six teams consisting of students from Henry Ford, Oakland and Macomb Community Colleges will compete with the top three teams receiving scholarships.

MGM Grand Detroit has committed $1 million over a 5-year period toward the Green Garden, which is maintained by Greening of Detroit.  Creating alliances and partnerships with key organizations are instrumental in providing resources and opportunities to Detroit and its citizens.

All of this work shows the continued dedication of Marx Layne & Co. to its clients.
