CANTON, Ohio (June 14, 2021) — Innis Maggiore, the nation’s leading positioning ad agency, today announced the hiring of Martha Belden to lead public relations to complement the agency’s full range of marketing services.\

Belden, an industry veteran, has worked with organizations of all sizes from startups to Fortune 500 companies such as Microsoft, Liberty Mutual Insurance Group, Expedia and Amazon. Some of Belden’s accomplishments include establishing Microsoft Office (Word, Excel and PowerPoint) as the standard for business productivity, driving tourism for Washington state, revamping openings for Savers’ thrift stores, launching Powerball in Washington state and introducing Amazon Music, the company’s second offering after books.

Belden will lead Innis Maggiore’s public relations services which include competitive analysis, strategic planning, media relations, influencer engagement and share of voice measurement.

“Public relations is vital to a comprehensive media campaign and we are excited to have an accomplished professional like Martha join our team” said Innis Maggiore President and CEO Dick Maggiore. “Martha has a solid track record for developing high-impact strategies and rolling up her sleeves to execute those programs.”
