Sky High Marketing (asi/328476) of Waukesha, WI, and SalesSmith Inc. of Elm Grove, WI, have merged, forming an industry firm with annual sales of about $6.5 million. Effective September 1, the joining of forces empowers both companies to combine resources and offer additional services to both client bases, executives said.
In announcing the merger, the distributorships said all employees from both companies will remain and noted that the new firm will operate under the Sky High Marketing name. Matt and Mary Caye Smith, owners of SalesSmith, will become Sky High’s CSO and COO.
“The additional services, including in-house design and online company stores, and the wealth of industry experience that Sky High Marketing will bring to our client base will add to the value of the promotional marketing services our clients are accustomed to,” said Matt Smith.
Sky High CEO Rachel Kozinski said that the merged distributorship will incorporate SalesSmith’s brand position of providing gratitude in the workplace, particularly by continuing SaleSmith’s Hero of the Month campaign, a support and recognition initiative.
“I’m extremely excited not only about the opportunity today, but more importantly where this merger will put us in the future as we begin to leverage our resources and share what we do with our existing and prospective customers across the country,” said COO Mary Caye Smith.
