True Media Celebrates 15th Anniversary

Posted on March 8th, 2020 by Mary Caitlyn Polovich

True Media was founded in 2005 with the mission of creating strategic and innovative ways to connect our customers to their customers. March 1, 2020 marked our 15 year anniversary, which has now grown from one office in Columbia, Mo, to six offices across North America. 

In acknowledgement of this milestone, all True Media employees converged upon Kansas City for a company-wide retreat and to celebrate the opening of our newest office in downtown Kansas City. 

The four-day retreat began with a welcome from Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas, followed by a series of empowering leadership speakers including Lisa Brouwer, Kristin Brown, Chad Chardin, and Lindsey Roy. The Keynote Speaker of the week was advertising Hall of Famer Bonin Bough, who spoke on innovation and creating value by hacking processes and yourself. Bough was followed by dinner and a private concert for employees and clients by American Idol winner David Cook at the Midland Theater. 

“The goal of this retreat was to celebrate how far we have come over the past 15 years, as well as inspire and encourage our team for the next 15.” said Jack Miller, True Media CEO. “A goal that was reinforced by each of our speakers who shared their experiences both in life and business.”

Innovation was also a key component of the retreat.  Employees worked outside of their normal teams during the event to brainstorm new and innovative media tactics for their clients. 

“Innovation is one of our core values and something we pursue daily. We have a lot of employees who work with team members across offices and across various disciplines,” Miller said. “It is important to always take advantage of these opportunities to bring everyone together to share ideas and shape collaborative thinking on behalf of our clients.”
