Chris Marshall, Vice President of Account Management at Callahan Creek, has been recognized as a 2012 Rising Star by KC Business magazine. Chosen by an independent panel of area business and civic leaders, the honorees are Kansas City professionals under the age of 40 who are selected based on their dedication to corporate success, accomplishments in professional endeavors and commitment to community and philanthropic activities.
“Chris deserves this award — his efforts have contributed greatly to Callahan Creek’s continued growth. We are very proud of him and appreciate his passion for our business,” said Cindy Maude, CEO of Callahan Creek.
Marshall has worked at Callahan Creek for seven years, but he feels that his work in 2011 has been particularly rewarding. Faced with numerous challenges at the beginning of the year, he was charged with focusing on new business and strengthening and diversifying Callahan Creek’s client base. His successful efforts awarded the firm five new clients by the end of the year.
“We appreciate and value Callahan Creek’s role as a part of the vital Kansas City business community. I’m thrilled to be chosen as a Rising Star and to be recognized as a leader in a thriving marketing and advertising culture,” said Marshall.
The Rising Star nominees were profiled in the February 2012 issue of KC Business magazine, and the annual event celebrating the nominations takes place in Kansas City on Thursday, February 16, at 6:00 p.m. in the Berg Event Space.
