It’s with pride, appreciation and excitement that Aker Ink announces its 10-year anniversary.

Aker Ink officially launched in 2007, a few months shy of the housing crash that marked the Great Recession. As many small businesses floundered and the media landscape underwent an unrivaled shift, Aker Ink pushed forward, adapting its offerings and providing the highest level of service no matter the challenge. This mindset and flexibility enabled the company to thrive throughout the recession and well into the economic recovery. Many businesses that sought out Aker Ink for public relations and marketing communication services during these early years remain with the company today, and are experiencing the myriad benefits and growth that accompany consistent and credible outreach.

Aker Ink President Andrea Aker is grateful for the company’s longevity and for its ability to adapt to ever-changing markets.

“Aker Ink launched at a time when PR and media were at a turning point,” she said. “We were able to quickly acclimate to changes in the industry and have used them to the advantage of both our clients and the company. I’m very appreciative for the continued loyalty of Aker Ink’s clients and partners. I’m excited to see where the next 10 years take us.”

Aker Ink has carved well-known niches in the professional services, finance, healthcare and legal industries. The company has also experienced success in the manufacturing and technology sectors.

“No matter the industry, we take a very specific approach to implementing PR campaigns,” said Andrea. “We always ensure the appropriate infrastructure is in place before launching into any media relations efforts. This care and knowledge separates us from many competitors.”

In 2015, Az Business Magazine recognized Andrea as one of the state’s top business leaders under 40. The Arizona Republic declared her among the Top 35 Entrepreneurs Under 35 in 2016. As well, Aker Ink has earned accolades from the Phoenix chapter of the American Marketing Association and the Arizona Interactive Marketing Association.
