SMALL ENOUGH TO CARE.
BIG ENOUGH TO STICK AROUND.
For over a decade, Thrive provides comprehensive media planning, buying, and optimization services – independent of media ownership.

Robin’s professionalism, acumen and deep network has made her a consultant I turn to again and again. Since our first project, I’ve repeatedly relied on Robin to deliver strategic, targeted and thoroughly negotiated media plans – both on the client and the agency side. I trust her implicitly, she always has her eye on the end game, she moves fluidly in roles where she’s represented my companies and, behind the scenes, she’s always looking for opportunities that might not have revealed themselves in the first stage of planning. Robin has a permanent spot in my little black book.

“Thrive won the Coastal Hotels account because of two things: follow-up, capability and flexibility. Okay, that’s three. Robin’s quick and thorough follow-up to the RFP made for a convenient decision. And Thrive’s professional capabilities were readily apparent. Regarding flexibility, in today’s economy and especially for the hospitality industry, Kiri’s flexibility both in terms of approach and attitude is critical to success. Also, Thrive has been able to grow along with our portfolio of hotels.”
