The Northeast Indiana Innovation Center welcomes its latest venture start up, Thought Leader Marketing.

"Leaders succeed because they are able to identify and articulate new potential", according to Chris Mann, founder of the niche marketing communications practice. Mann says that "conveying that vision to a diversity of audiences is tricky, and that he has some unique experience in helping leaders in businesses, churches and non-profits overcome those barriers."

“A client will come to me with a certain profile level ‘A’ and want to grow into a profile level ‘B’ in order to achieve a personal or professional goal,” says Mann, a Taylor University MBA graduate and veteran public policy communications aid. “The strategy that we implement might include placing opinion-editorials, a social media editorial calendar, speaker bureau engagement, content syndication, and more. My company helps craft and execute on that trajectory.”

“This is a highly specialized marketing platform and public relations practice that is common in some parts of the country, but much less so in the Midwest,” says Karl R. LaPan, CEO of the NIIC. “Our regional entrepreneurs & community leaders need this kind of service to thrive in an increasingly global marketplace, and we’re excited about Chris Mann launching his innovative practice here at the NIIC. It’s a great fit with a lot of synergy.”

“Chris Mann’s unique approach to helping northeast Indiana leaders and entrepreneurs excel is inspiring, and the NIIC is passionate about being a strategic partner in his success,” said Mike Fritsch, the NIIC Entrepreneur-In-Residence. “We look forward to collaborating and engaging with Chris in the same way we work with our over 30 active residential client companies in accelerating their business growth and development everyday.”
