“We completed a block buster Q1 while finishing a grueling and tough launch for our Pooki’s Mahi’s teas. Debbie Durkin, CEO of Durkin Entertainment approached me two weeks at the end of March. I’m pleased with her organization, TV credits to her name and flexibility working with a high tech startup. 2014 started strong for Pooki’s Mahi. This is an initial partnership. Partnering with Debbie and Durkin Entertainment for the RockNRolla Movie Awards Eco Lounge made sense for several reasons,” said Les Magsalay-Zeller, Founder/CEO of Pooki’s Mahi. She continues, “Debbie has consistently placed products in over 12 movies such as The Expendables (2010) and Blades of Glory (2007) and three TV series. Durkin Entertainment’s last Eco Oscars Luxury Lounge at BAR 210 at The Beverly Hilton generated 100MM+ media impressions and was featured in People, Life & Style, In Touch, Huffington Post, Examine, E!, Red Carpet Report TV, Wire Image, etc. Top stars in entertainment consistently turn out for the two-day invite-only event. A who’s who of film, television, sports, and music personalities engage directly with companies. In additional to the individual photo opportunities companies take advantage of major media publications will also be present at this event. Regional, national, and international press from television, radio, print, and web outfits all clamor for inclusion of this one-of-a-kind opportunity.
Pooki’s Mahi partners with companies who are highly organized, like-minded, experts in their industry with a track record and executes consistently. Disorganization, lack of flexibility or accomplishments is not tolerated. Initial partnerships are tested. We’re highly selective with our long-term partnerships. Pooki’s Mahi would not be where it is today without them.”
