Tampa, FL (PRWEB) October 26, 2016
The Tampa Bay Business Journal has announced that MCA-Russell Johns is on its List of Top 100 women-owned companies. MCA (http://myclassifiedads.net) was formed a decade ago by media maven Blaire Fanning; two years ago she merged MCA with Russell Johns Associates (http://www.russelljohns.com).
“We’re proud of Blaire and what she’s accomplished,” said General Manager Alex Clevenger. “Her vision and vitality inspire those who work for her and with her; this recognition affirms what we already knew: Blaire Fanning is a savvy businesswoman who is not only personally successful but also relentless in her pursuit of helping others succeed—whether they be employees or clients.”
MCA is a full-service advertising agency that leverages strategically placed volume buys to help clients target the largest potential audience for the least amount of money. In addition, the company assists clients with a wide range of labor certification services, including Program Electronic Review Management (PERM), H1A, H2B and all Temporary Work Visas.
Russell Johns connects advertisers with the nation’s top media brands in the publishing industry, including USA TODAY. The company helps publishers and advertisers build working relationships that increase revenue potential and streamline processes.
“Our unique relationship with multiple media partners enables us to achieve our clients' marketing goals without the traditional marketing fees,” said Fanning, adding that the company “provides multi-media solutions to form a solid foundation for a thriving business.”
MCA-Russell Johns was listed #21 on TBBJ’s List of Top 100 Women-Owned Bay Area Companies. #1 was Great Bay Distributors Inc. in St. Petersburg; #2 was Michael Saunders & Co. in Sarasota, FL. To qualify for the list, a company had to be more than 50 percent woman-owned and headquartered in the Bay area.
