What are the services you use the most (or are looking forward to using) from the Columbus Chamber?
We are looking forward to attending networking events and connecting with key business leaders in the Columbus region. We plan on submitting news, events and press releases through Columbus.org in order to highlight the Markey’s name throughout the region and create more awareness on our services. We are excited to interact and collaborate digitally with the Chamber’s social media channels and share in discussions on best practices and thought leadership as it relates to the Columbus market.
In 2014 a cross-section of employees from all departments and locations came together to create the Markey’s Ideals.
Our Ideals: We care…. about our customer; about one another; about our craft; about our legacy. We are… trustworthy; unified; industry leaders; quality. You can learn more through video testimonials at www.markeys.com/culture.
