898 Marketing Hires Kelly Fertig to Lead Media Relations

(May 14, 2019) Canfield, OH – With over a decade of advertising, marketing and media buying experience, Kelly Fertig brings her talents to support the growing client base of 898 Marketing. Her responsibilities will include planning and executing traditional media buys, building and enhancing relationships with local media outlets, and assisting in content creation across multiple media platforms.
A graduate of Youngstown State University, Fertig spent six years at Engauge, a full-service advertising agency, in Columbus, Ohio as a member of the media team. She worked with clients including Honey Baked Ham, Donatos Pizza, Perkins Family Restaurants and Bacardi Limited, among others.

“I’m thrilled to join the team at 898 Marketing! From my first conversation with Jeff Ryznar, I was blown away by his approach to marketing from the work he does with his clients, to his philosophy on how he runs the agency,” said Fertig. “I enjoy working with a variety of clients, learning about their business, and helping them find the best way to convey their message.”
Jeff Ryznar, President of 898 Marketing, expressed his support for the agency’s latest addition: “Media buying and establishing relationships with both media partners and content providers is more sophisticated now than ever before. Having someone of Kelly’s caliber puts 898 Marketing in a great position to deliver the insightful solutions and measurable results our clients have come to expect from our approach to branding, marketing and strategic planning.” According to Ryznar, “Her diverse experience of incorporating all media into a cohesive and symbiotic plan, combined with her knowledge of brand-based marketing, are an ideal fit for 898 Marketing, as our business continues to grow our client’s businesses and our community.”
