“We have been working with Thrive and are very impressed with their knowledge, communication and organization.”

Director of Marketing, Suncadia

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.

Robin is an invaluable partner to our marketing department, and to our organization as a whole. She is extremely knowledgeable about the media and advertising industries, and has a knack for putting together creative and insightful packages that encompass the entire marketing mix. Robin and her team have helped us with both our long-term advertising strategy and timely promotional efforts, while keeping our target audience, mission statement, and goals to serve our community at the heart of it all. She knows the true cost and reach of placements across broadcast television, radio, digital, and social media and works to make sure that we are getting the best value.

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.
