Alexandria's McKinley Marketing Partners Donates Office Supplies to At-Risk Pre-Schoolers

Alexandria's McKinley Marketing Partners Donates Office Supplies to At-Risk Pre-Schoolers

McKinley Marketing Partners, headquartered in Alexandria, Virginia with offices in Dallas, Texas and the New York Metro area, recently embarked on a new era of operation by rebranding with a fresh logo and an updated, user-friendly website. The new circular design of its logo underscores McKinley’s mission – to provide complete, well-rounded marketing solutions for its clients’ interim or direct-hire needs.

By rebranding, McKinley is moving forward with new ways to assist its diverse Fortune 1000 clientele and to recruit new marketing talent. McKinley also wants to remain a vital community leader in Old Town Alexandria, with office headquarters in a remodeled warehouse that originally operated as an arms dealership. Since the rebranding, McKinley had found itself with reams of logo paper products and other office supplies it can no longer use due to the introduction of its new round logo.

Mr. Mitchell and Me

Mr. Mitchell and Me

If you’ve lived in the D.C. area for a while, you’ve probably heard of DeMatha, the Catholic boys’ school in Hyattsville, Maryland. And if you have heard of DeMatha, odds are that it’s because of the school’s nationally renowned athletics program, which has boasted such names as legendary basketball coach Morgan Wootten, basketball Hall of Famer Adrian Dantley, NFL Pro Bowler Brian Westbrook, and NFL broadcaster James Brown, to name just a few. To most with a passing familiarity with the school, DeMatha is synonymous with sports. When I told people that I attended DeMatha, I was frequently asked “What sport do you play?” My response of “I don’t play a sport,” was always met by befuddlement and a perfunctory “Then why do you go to DeMatha?”

Let me tell you.
