inferno Celebrates Mid-year Accomplishments with Agency Day


MEMPHIS, Tenn. – inferno, a full-service advertising, marketing, design and public relations firm, recently celebrated the completion of a successful six months with its bi-annual Agency Day. During these events, inferno employees come together to review the agency’s latest work as well as enjoy a meal and special activity.

“We are proud of the hard work and effort put forth by our team and the many successes achieved for our clients over the past six months,” said Dan O’Brien, Agency Partner at inferno. “It’s been a busy first half of the year, and we wanted to show our employees how much we appreciate their dedication to both our clients and the agency.”

The inferno team arrived at the office at 6:30 a.m., and then boarded a charter bus to St. Louis for a Cardinals baseball game. On the way to Busch Stadium, O’Brien presented each employee with a custom inferno jersey, complete with his or her nickname on the back.

As with each Agency Day, “Above and Beyond” awards were also given out. These awards, combined with an extra day off, are presented to employees who were nominated by their peers for consistently giving 110% at the office. The four recipients were Isabelle Blais, PR Account Coordinator; Brandon Davis, Copywriter; Cristina Jucan, Art Director; and Liza Routh, Account Executive.

After the game, the inferno team was treated to dinner at Lambert’s Café in Sikeston, Mo. The following week, agency partners brought employees together once again to review mid-year financials, as well as creative projects completed thus far.

“We feel it’s important to maintain transparency and ensure employees are aware of each department’s role in the great work we produce for our clients,” said Tim Sellers, Agency Partner at inferno. “Our client base and project load continue to expand, thanks to the tremendous work of our growing team. We look forward to another strong report come our year-end Agency Day.”
