Last Wednesday, April 27, members of Franklin’s Noonday Rotary Club recognized Premiere Marketing as  the recipient of the 2016 Business Integrity Award. Premiere was nominated by Shaina Adkins, a member of the noonday Rotary Club of Franklin and executive director of CareNet.

“We are humbled to be recognized by the Franklin Rotary Club,” said D’Anne Maddox, director of marketing for Premiere. “It’s an honor to receive the 2016 Business Integrity Award.”

Premiere first started doing business in Macon County in 2000 and Maddox has been with the company since 2004. Premiere Marketing provides advertising for businesses in Franklin and beyond, specializing in print media, direct mail, billboards, TV, and social media.

The Rotary Club of Franklin presented the award this year to Premiere Marketing for its adherence to the business standards practiced by Rotarians.  Rotarians measure a successful business by applying the rules of the 4-way Test for Rotarians:

1) Is it the truth?

2) Is it fair to all concerned?

3) Will it build good will and better friendships?

4) Will it be beneficial to all concerned?

“By holding to a high standard of professionalism in its business practices, in local and national advertising campaigns, and by demonstrating a commitment to the local community, Premiere Marketing leads the way in business ethics and integrity,” said Karen Kenney, vocational chair for Rotary. “This organization demonstrates a very high standard of ethical business practices, integrity, and civic and social responsibility. The Rotary Club of Franklin is proud to recognize Premiere Marketing with this year’s Business Integrity Award.”

Maddox noted that Premiere Marketing is dedicated to employing ethical business practices and providing clients with a high level of service.

“Aside from adopting strict quality assurance procedures to ensure that everything we produce is accurate and exceeds client expectations, our diverse team brings a wide variety of expert perspectives and enthusiasm to every project,” said Maddox. “We truly take pride in teaming up with our clients and helping them succeed.”
