MASSILLON, Ohio (October 16, 2000) -- Waikem Auto Group, the largest auto dealership group in Stark County, today announced that it has selected a new agency, Innis Maggiore Group, to handle advertising and promotion for its 14 area automotive franchises.

"We wanted an agency that demonstrated a solid understanding of the local market and brought us a fresh perspective," said Doug Waikem of Waikem Auto Group. "Innis Maggiore was tops in both categories, and can also offer us research, public relations and other capabilities that many other agencies cannot provide."
