Glendale, Ariz. (October 29, 2008) – Marketing with a Flair – a full-service communications agency offering strategic planning, marketing, public relations, and advertising – is pleased to announce the acquisition of new clients and the hiring of a new staff member who will help provide innovative marketing solutions to clients with measurable results.

Rachel Rupprecht has joined Marketing with a Flair to provide support to the firm’s graphic design services by coordinating design plans, lending assistance to the firm’s growing interactive services and supporting advertising and marketing efforts.

in-house resources are currently overtaxed or require supplemental support. The firm’s client list has grown substantially in recent months and includes companies in a range of fields including health care, retail, finance, service, hospitality, and non-profit.

Even in the weak economy, marketing and public relations is more important than ever as evidenced by the Northwest Valley based agency’s acquisition of new clients including Quality Equipment & Spray, RECHARGE® Institute, the Women Entrepreneurs’ Small Business Boot Camp and Everest Manufacturing. In addition, Marketing with a Flair President Robin D. Cook was invited to judge the 2008 Stevie Awards for Women in Business – one of the world’s most coveted awards – where she assisted in determining award winners in the various categories.
