Julie Jakob, CEO of Jakob Marketing Partners, LLC, was recently named the 2012 Chairperson for the Holladay Chamber of Commerce. Jakob has been part of the Utah business community since 2004 and has taken an active role in promoting and supporting local businesses and events.
“I’m excited that Julie will bring a new focus and new direction to the chamber,” Holladay City Manager Randy Fitts said. “I’m grateful that she wants to serve and I think we’re going to see some great things happen with Holladay businesses this year.”
Jakob Marketing Partners was named the 48th fastest growing company in Utah in 2010 and the 29th fastest in 2011 (Mountain West Capital Network “Utah 100”). It was also recognized by Inc. Magazine in 2011 as one of nation’s fastest growing companies (Inc 500/5000 List), at number 937. JMP recently acquired All Nite Graphics to help further expand its client base and billings. The company was also named the 2011 Holladay Business of the Year.
Jakob plans to develop a vision statement to define the chamber and create an outreach program that could double membership. She wants to let businesses know the value of chamber membership by offering a full range of programs and services.
“The Holladay Chamber of Commerce should be the go-to organization at the local level to develop and publicize business opportunities in Holladay and provide support to other community institutions,” Jakob said. “We should offer a variety of forums where members can express their specific views and concerns pertaining to the challenges facing small businesses.”
