Local Area Marketing voted into Local Business Awards Finals
"Support the people and the people will support you," Local Area Marketing Chief Marketing Officer, Joe Kowalewski, said after hearing of his company's success in making the finals of the 2018 Penrith City Local Business Awards.
"Entering the Awards was a bit of a last minute dash and I really didn't think we would make it through," he said.
"But when word got through to our clients and supporters, it seems a lot of people got behind us very quickly and literally carried us over the line. It's a very humbling experience".
Local Area Marketing has been operating less than 12 months and was nominated in the Outstanding New Business category.
The Penrith based business provides mor than 30 marketing, communication, IT and cyber security services to SMEs in Greater Western Sydney and puts a strong emphasis on mentoring small business and start-ups.
It supports a number of business networking groups in Penrith, the Blue Mountains and Blacktown and has launched pilot groups at Norwest and Parramatta.
Local Area Marketing will now advance to the finals with category winners announced on 4 July at the Awards Presentation evening in Penrith Panthers Exhibition Marquee.
