SOLUTIONS THAT INSPIRE
Director of Marketing
" Dennis and his partner Connie Towers, McKinley Griffen Design and Advertising, worked with me for several years when I was at Glens Falls Hospital.
They are nothing short of superb.
If you are in need of a creative partner for your project you can't go wrong with them! "
" MGD&A was intimately involved in the development and implementation of a new brand for our credit union. They provided services integral to the promotion of that new brand as well as developed marketing messages targeted to specific segments. Connie Towers and Dennis Towers are very knowledgeable and thorough. I confidently recommend McKinley Griffen's advertising and marketing services. "
"Dennis and Connie were key cogs in the marketing plans that were developed by the Albany River Rats of the American Hockey League. They were always able to provide a fresh take on reaching secondary markets with innovative ideas. There were many specific hockey game "events" that grew from their marketing expertise. I recommend them for anyone who needs to stand out from the crowd with high quality creative, innovative approaches to standard practices and a host of million dollar ideas."
