Cedar Valley AAF Presents Spinutech President with MVP Award
Published by Spinutech on March 5, 2020
Spinutech’s own co-founder and president, Marc Reifenrath, was presented with the Cedar Valley AAF-MVP Award at the 2020 American Advertising Federation Awards Ceremony in Waterloo. This award is given to one professional each year in the marketing and advertising industry who have made a significant impact on the local community.
“We’ve really made a conscious effort to invest in the future of the digital marketing industry in all three of our markets: Cedar Valley, Des Moines, and Chicago,” says Reifenrath.
All three of our founders are alumni of the University of Northern Iowa (UNI). Since 2018, Spinutech has partnered with the university’s UNIBusiness Professional Readiness Program® (PRP). Through this program, business students get an inside look at the digital marketing industry and additional education to help them excel in their future careers.
In 2019, the inaugural UNI Digital Marketing Forum was created thanks to a $30,000 donation from Spinutech. Student attendees heard from local professionals and even two of our friends from Google on industry trends. The creation of this event aligns with Spinutech’s core value of continual learning and growth. During the Digital Marketing Forum, the next generation of business students were able to get a real-world feel for a career in digital marketing.
“It’s really an honor to give back financially to the future of digital marketing,” says Reifenrath. “The Cedar Valley has been a huge supporter of Spinutech on many levels throughout the years.”
In addition to supporting students while earning their education, Spinutech currently has more than 25 team members that are former Panthers. We are continuing to grow our team of professional digital strategists, web designers, and web developers.
