SSDM Named One of Metro Detroit’s Best and Brightest

TROY, Mich. — SSDM, a premier digital marketing agency, is one of Metro Detroit’s 2019 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For®.

This is the first time the agency has received this honor, which “identifies and recognizes organizations that display a commitment to excellence in their human resource practices and employee enrichment.”

Employees are surveyed by an independent entity to ensure anonymity for their answers to questions regarding communication, work-life balance, employee education, diversity, recognition, retention and more.

“Like any company that’s growing significantly every year, we realize the importance of listening very carefully to the sentiments of our team members,” says Michael J. Taylor II, SSDM partner and creative director. “We’re always striving to do better and be better, so this means a lot to all of us.”

Earlier this year, SSDM also was named to the 2019 Inc. 5000 List of Fastest-Growing Companies, ranked #226 among honorees in the Advertising and Marketing field, and #35 among all Michigan companies on the list.

The Metro Detroit Best and Brightest Awards will be presented at an event at The Henry in Dearborn, on Tuesday, October 22, 2019.

SSDM’S Dana Knight is Certified Digital Project Manager

Troy, MI — SSDM, an award-winning digital marketing agency, is committed to elevating its level of customer satisfaction through the continuing education of its employees. Recently, Dana Knight completed coursework at dpm and is now a Certified Digital Project Manager.

The seven-week course addresses statement-of-work, discovery and timeline development, as well as role definition to successfully formulate high-performing teams to deal with any and all production challenges.

“Our clients rely on us to not only provide strategic consulting, but to deliver campaigns on time and on budget to accomplish their marketing goals,” says Amanda Farley, SSDM partner and operations director.

“Dana already was amazing when she joined us in November of 2018, but she wanted to be sure we were as organized as possible, with hundreds of tasks – including various internal projects – in production at any one time, so she took the initiative to become certified,” says Farley.

Touching literally every job, Knight is a chief scheduler, nudging when a deadline is looming and a ringleader, orchestrating and cheering the SSDM teams each step of the way. “I love seeing projects and teams come together and really enjoy completing an especially complex job with a lot of moving parts. It’s fun putting it all together and making the magic happen.”
