CLIENT QUOTES

“The creative team at The Zimmerman Group did an excellent job with reinventing the marketing of our products. Ellen and her very talented team quickly learned our business and have given us great tools to attack several new markets with. From the logo design and marketing plan to the website design and marketing materials, The Zimmerman Group’s approach was easy to implement and the results have started immediately.”

ROBERT ZIMMERMAN, MARKETING DIRECTOR
SCALTROL, INC.
SUWANEE, GEORGIA

“We hired Ellen Zimmerman four years ago to help us market our product to North America. She prepared a strategy for us and helped us implement it through various channels. Not only did our sales double, but we gained a long-term team member who is trustworthy, knowledgeable and a lot of fun to work with!”

KJELL OTTESEN, OWNER
SPRINGER AMERICA INC.
RALEIGH, NORTH CAROLINA

“We had a very positive response at the trade show, and the booth definitely attracted a lot of attention and created a great stage for our products.  It’s been a real pleasure working with you.  It feels like we’ve been working together forever.  On behalf of the whole team, thank you for your help and advice — under such pressure, we surely delivered!”

Amy Wright, Global Marketing Manager
Taura Natural Ingredients
Mount Maunganui, New Zealand

“I wanted to let you know how well the website has been received.  We’ve gotten lots of positive feedback from social workers and referring agencies.  It’s been especially rewarding to hear from parents.  They’ve gone through the website and watched the virtual tours with their sons.  They said the website was easy to navigate.  Great work.  It was great working with you.  And the product is very, very satisfying.”

Dr. John Lamanna, Executive Director
Timber Ridge School
Winchester, Virginia

“Ellen is a dedicated professional who puts thought and energy into the services she provides. I found her very helpful in exhibit booth design and graphics, as well as in providing contacts and input for article placement in health industry publications. She is always delightful, professional and great to work with!”

Director, Marketing and Communications
UNITED BIOSOURCE CORPORATION
BETHESDA, MD

“I selected The Zimmerman Group as a marketing partner because of their extensive experience in my industry. We needed someone who could get up-to-speed quickly. Ellen Zimmerman and her team have worked successfully with major pharma companies and CROs, as well as with biotech and other health research firms, so she really understands our challenges and opportunities. And now, having recently exhibited at an important trade show with a booth and materials that her team created, we are certain that we made the right choice.”

Philip Lloyd, President
BIOCHEMED SERVICES
WINCHESTER, VIRGINIA

“For almost 5 years, Ellen Zimmerman and I have partnered to create innovative marketing initiatives for RIEMSER, Inc., a German-based medical device company with U.S. headquarters in RTP, NC. Not only does Ellen have a tremendous grasp of the bio-pharma and medical device markets, she and her team also create beautiful and high-impact ads, booth treatments, mailers and various other collateral that generate excitement and interest in the marketplace! Her attention to detail, impeccable interpersonal skills, and timely follow-through have earned my respect: I trust her completely to deliver high quality work. I am a huge fan of Ellen and her team at The Zimmerman Group and highly recommend her services!”

Marketing Manager
RIEMSER INC.
DURHAM, NORTH CAROLINA

“With a new company and a new dental product, we wanted to partner with an agency that could get up-to-speed quickly, but also to spend our dollars creatively and strategically. Plus it was important to get sound guidance about a whole range of issues beyond advertising, such as exhibit booths, mailings, etc.  And we also wanted someone who has been successful with these kinds of challenges in the past.  The Zimmerman Group met these requirements and we think that our first year’s advertising and trade show campaign was right on target – great concept, great execution.”

Director of Marketing
CURASAN, INC.
DURHAM, NORTH CAROLINA

“I had a nice message in my voice mail today about you.  A media representative called to say how impressed she was with your agency.  She said the materials for our ad arrived on time, in perfect condition...and it was a dynamite ad, to boot!  She said she appreciated that more than we would ever know.  She told me we were lucky to have you and I couldn’t agree more!”

Shelly Green, CEO
DURHAM CONVENTION & VISITORS BUREAU
DURHAM, NORTH CAROLINA 

“Thanks again for all of your hard work and dedication to this strategic communications planning project. I appreciate how quickly you’ve been able to grasp our position.  You do great work.”

Chief Financial Officer
CIIT CENTERS FOR HEALTH RESEARCH
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK
NORTH CAROLINA

“The Zimmerman Group – and Ellen in particular – became part of our team right from the beginning of our organization and helped us with all our marketing, from creating our corporate identity to designing our website to handling trade show graphics to developing direct mail programs for clients.”

Division Director, Business Development
RTI HEALTH SOLUTIONS
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK
NORTH CAROLINA  

“There are two things I appreciate most about our marketing partnership.  First, your creativity. Your ideas have all been very fresh. You’ve been able to take marketing objectives and have fun with them creatively.  Second, you adapt well and quickly to multiple marketing situations – whether we’re facing great challenges or exciting opportunities.”

Director of Marketing
NEWTON INSTRUMENT COMPANY
BUTNER, NORTH CAROLINA

“You said you were going to give us something fresh and different – and you did!  Our advertising campaign achieved the results we were aiming for.  The Serquest booth had more activity than that of any other company that exhibited.  Those who visited said it was the attention-getting nature of the campaign that enticed them to stop.”

Director of Business Development
SERQUEST
BIRMINGHAM, ALABAMA

“The marketing letter you wrote to help us introduce VirtualOfficeAmerica to one of our audiences generated a 60% hit rate to our website!  Of those who came to our site, another 30% went on to view our demo.”

President
VIRTUALOFFICEAMERICA.COM
DURHAM, NORTH CAROLINA

“Since they understand our industry so well, The Zimmerman Group has been able to develop successful, popular materials.  Whether they’re working on advertising, internal communications, brochures, or newsletters, they know how to coordinate with legal, the mail room, and various other departments to make our programs come together.”

GLAXOSMITHKLINE
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK
NORTH CAROLINA 

“Almost all the people who came to our trade show already knew about RapidMask thanks to the direct mail and advertising you created. And the response was amazing; in fact, we couldn’t even fill all the orders. They were turning the lights out in the hall and people were still lined up.”
