Brooklyn, NY, March 21, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- The Ptex Group, a marketing agency headquartered in Borough Park, paid tribute Tuesday to Brooklyn’s small business owners, corporate-style.
The occasion – dubbed the “Perfect Harmony Event” – served to highlight the rebranding of Ptex Group’s four different divisions that operate in perfect harmony to help small businesses grow bigger.
Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz graced the event with his presence in a show of support for small business, along with numerous elected officials. Notables in attendance included Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce Vice President Rick Russo, prominent business owners from the Brooklyn community, representatives from local banking institutions and executive directors of area non-profit organizations.
“In essence, we’re celebrating the achievements of our valued clients – the small business owners of Brooklyn,” said Mr. Meny Hoffman, Ptex Group’s president, in his opening remarks. “Actually, it’s a misnomer to refer to them as small business. We should really address them by their proper title: growing business.”
Founded in 2001, Ptex Group began as a humble printing brokerage house called Printex with a few small accounts and many big ideas. With its guiding mission of helping small businesses grow bigger, Printex ultimately expanded its services into the fields of graphic design, marketing and office/staffing solutions, officially rebranding itself in 2010 as Ptex Group.
The amalgamation and rebranding of these divisions were marked on Tuesday afternoon, replete with sushi, refreshments and a live orchestra playing in perfect harmony at the agency’s headquarters on 13th Avenue and 39th Street.
Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz was the featured speaker. He began by noting that he made an extra effort to attend the event as it signified the impact that small businesses have upon Brooklyn’s economy. Borough President Markowitz also acknowledged the importance of marketing in the corporate world, observing that every successful event held by Brooklyn’s Chamber of Commerce always had a strong marketing effort behind it.
At the day’s end, the music eventually faded, guests slowly departed and an orange-tinged sunset leisurely slipped below the horizon. But thanks to the business-boosting opportunities offered by Ptex Group’s team of professionals, for many Brooklyn businesses, the sun is only beginning to rise.
