ROCHESTER, MN--(Marketwired - Jul 28, 2015) - Promotional Marketing Advantages Inc. recently announced their expansion from La Crosse, WI to Rochester, MN this month. The grand opening of this additional location will mark the continuation of the company's growth into four offices since 2013. The move to Rochester is predicted to open up an additional eight to ten full-time positions in the organization. Promotional Marketing Advantages, or PMA, an in-store marketing firm representing some of the nation's top providers of satellite television, attributes much of the organization's success to its top management team. Market Manager, Stephen Oates, joked that the key to building a long-term career in the organization is the "Positive Mental Attitude" that forms the foundation of PMA's approach to customer interaction and employment development.

In addition to positivity, PMA is currently celebrating the promotions of Skyler Lloyd and Tyler Schmidt from the Chicago Regional Leadership Summit that was held on June 17, 2015. Promotional Marketing Advantages Inc. believes in promoting employees from within the company by providing in-house management training for individuals looking for the opportunity to build long-term careers. Having completed his training, Lloyd will be taking over as acting Market Manager in La Crosse, WI at the beginning of August 2015. Market Manager Oates, who personally trained Lloyd, commented on the promotion, stating: "Skyler has the 'Magic Ingredient.' He knows how to be a producer in all of our locations. He has the gab, and he knows how to make a business profitable."

Schmidt, the newly appointed Assistant Manager, will be travelling to Rochester with Oates as PMA expands into the new market. Oates remarked that he was pleased to have Schmidt along with him on the transition, stating, "Tyler is loyal. He respects the opportunity and is working for it. He takes ownership of what he has to do to be successful." In order to facilitate the growth necessary to meet their additional expansion goals in 2015, Oates and Schmidt will be running a management program in the Rochester office. Oates asserted, "I am excited about providing management opportunities for those who want to build a career with us and their own campaign." Oates stated that candidates looking to be successful at Promotional Marketing Advantages Inc. and obtain a management opportunity must possess qualities such as an all-day work ethic, long-term vision, and the willingness to follow the right people with student ambition.

When asked about the kind of atmosphere that PMA looks to promote in this new Rochester office, Oates remarked that he is aspiring to create a uniform environment in all of their current locations. He described a day in the office, stating, "Everyone has so much energy and positivity -- high fives and lifting the other people up." Office Admin, Mackenzi Hermeier, described her experiences at PMA as well, stating, "I've never been part of such a fun atmosphere until I started working at PMA. It's unbelievable to think that at 21 years old, I'll probably never have to go on another interview. Stephen is an amazing mentor and great to work next to. With the new company expansion, I am genuinely excited to see who this opportunity will touch in the future."
