Marketing firm opens West Side office
A local marketing firm has moved into a new office.
Grand Rapids-based 1 Bold Step now has a space to call its own. The firm moved this spring to the fourth floor of the New Holland Brewing building, 408 Bridge St. NW.
Prior to moving, CEO and founder Jennifer Jurgens said she and her business partner, Adam Clarke, who is the president of the firm, were working remotely from their homes and, at times, at their clients’ locations.
Now that the company has grown from two to three with the recent addition of Danielle Fedel as marketing operations coordinator, the office space was necessary.
“As we grew, the need for collaboration and creative space to work together became paramount,” Jurgens said. “Solving complex problems is easier when we are face-to-face and have a large whiteboard.”
The new space is about 600 square feet with access to conference rooms, the rooftop lanai and kitchens in the building.
The landlord is Media Place Partners, an advertising agency that also operates from the building.
“There is great synergy between our companies and we're excited to be able to offer the Media Place services to our customers,” Jurgens said.
