ASA Marketing Group, a 29 year ad agency in Topeka, KS announces a new business and recent move to downtown Topeka. Miles Kramer, former Art Director of ASA Marketing Group, is now President. Kramer reinstated political consulting, research, and public opinion polling to the ad agency.
“The successful campaigns of Governor Joan Finney and Congresswoman Nancy Boyda were possible because of ASA research division.” according to Kramer.
The new company, ASA Strategic Funding, Inc. was formed in June, 2014 by Jim Deines, founder of ASA Marketing Group (ASA) and Jim Collogan, founder of the National School Foundation Association (NSFA) in Ankeny, Iowa. The success of Hummer Sports Park and Bettis Family Sports Complex created out-of-market demand from public schools and their foundations for private funding, especially for advertising and naming rights. This led to the business relationship of Deines and Collogan and formation of ASA Strategic Funding.
Collogan is President/CEO and Board Chair of ASA Strategic Funding. Deines is Sr. Vice President, ASA Strategic Funding and Chairman of the Board, ASA Marketing Group.
ASA Marketing Group and ASA Strategic Funding are located in the Ramada Downtown Mezzanine Business Suite, overlooking the Atrium. ASA will utilize the Ramada state-of-the-art research facility with their move to the downtown Topeka location.
An open house is scheduled Thursday, January 21, from 2 pm to 6 pm following the Greater Topeka Chamber of Commerce annual meeting at the Ramada. A Chamber ribbon cutting ceremony is planned for 2 pm.
