[Mellady Direct] – The night of Friday, Sept. 25, was a milestone evening for Mellady Direct Marketing, when we were named the Santa Clarita Valley’s Business of the Year at the VIA Bash, the Valley Industry Association’s black-tie gala held at the Hyatt Regency Valencia.
VIA represents hundreds of businesses in the SCV, and receiving this award was humbling and an absolute honor. When Mellady Direct was named VIA’s Rising Star in 2004, we never imagined that in 2015 we’d accept an award for Business of the Year.
Over the course of nearly 30 years, Mellady Direct Marketing has gone from being a home-based business to a full-service marketing, printing and mailing firm operating out of a nearly 15,000-square-foot facility in the Valencia Industrial Center. We have wonderful clients with whom we work locally, regionally and nationally, and the long-term relationships we’ve formed with them have been a major contributor to our success.
Much thanks goes to VIA and those committee members who nominated Mellady Direct for this award, and those who selected us. Thank you for believing in us.
Additionally, thanks goes to everyone on the Mellady Direct team, who work hard every day to ensure we are delivering excellent services and products.
Finally, we want to extend warm wishes to all the other businesses that were nominated for Business of the Year: Southern California Edison, the City of Santa Clarita, College of the Canyons, SCVTV, Castaic Lake Water Agency, Signal Multimedia, Nola Aronson’s Advanced Audiology and American Business Machines. Thank you for all you do to help make the SCV a better place.
Awards don’t change our already passionate commitment to quality work, but they are absolutely an encouraging validation of the work we do. We are proud of the business we’ve built, proud to serve the business community, and grateful for the recognition.
