April 27, 2012 – Cranberry Twp., PA – MarketSpace Communications, a full-service branding agency based in Cranberry Township, is pleased to announce that President & CEO Pam Peters was recognized last evening as a 2012 Diamond Award winner by the Pittsburgh Business Times. The awards program, held on April 26 at the Lexus Club at PNC Park, recognized Peters and her fellow 14 recipients.
The Diamond Award aims to honor outstanding business leaders in southwestern Pennsylvania. The winners are all CEOs or hold the equivalent position within their company or nonprofit organization.
During Peters’ acceptance speech, she described the valuable gamble she took when beginning MarketSpace. “Yes, I was taking a risk,” said Peters. “But it’s so much more than that.
I’ve always had a passion and drive and believed that anything is possible – absolutely anything if you put your mind to it.”
Peters was also sure to attribute the award and her successes to her employees.
“To me, receiving this Diamond Award isn’t just about my business leadership,” said Peters. “Yes, the success of our company is part of that; but, even more so, it’s about our MarketSpace philosophy, our culture and most importantly, our associates. MarketSpace is all about our people and their talents, and that’s what helps us grow.”
Peters started her career in a corporate environment, and from there joined a local advertising agency as a creative director. In October 2005 she founded MarketSpace, which has since grown to more than 20 employees, and is today a flexible, nimble agency leading the way in marketing, technology and green solutions for clients. Peters has guided the agency’s client list to span 30 active clients across the nation, though the majority are still local to the Pittsburgh region, where Pam was born and raised.
Outside of work, Peters dedicates time to a number of local community organizations. She is on the boards of the St. Gregory Centennial Endowment and Butler County Community College, and volunteers on the St. Gregory Super Bingo committee. She also supports the annual Cranberry CUP in Cranberry Township.
MarketSpace is a certified Woman Business Enterprise (WBE) in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
