As a rising Junior at the University of Dayton, I was so thankful that Thread Marketing Group offered me an internship position for Summer 2019 in my hometown of Toledo, OH. A first internship entails many learning opportunities for any student, but I didn’t expect to learn as much as I did. Throughout the past 3 months, I’ve been working with various clients across service lines including PR, Social Media, Web, etc, and these are the 5 main things that I have learned about working in the business world with professional adults.
Last evening in New York City, Thread Marketing Group was awarded the prestigious 2019 Silver Anvil Award by the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA), the nation’s largest community for public relations professionals.

Thread has handled Toledo Jeep Fest’s public relations initiatives since its inception in 2016.
We are pleased to announce the addition of Kevin P. Mullan, Vice President, New Business Development to the Thread team.
