We Grow When You Grow.

Providing the Peace of Mind that Comes with Success

 

We work with technical B2B companies that could be in need of a team (because they don’t have one) or they have the teams and technology in place, but aren’t using either effectively due to lack of integration or process.

Founded by engineers who can "speak the language", we specialize in the industrial, manufacturing, and engineering space. We see ourselves as an extension of your sales and marketing team.

 

We are an agile team, ready to grow your business.

How Can We Help?

 

Our values drive growth for our clients and for each individual

Marge Murphy - Acadia Team
Marge Murphy
President
 
Title: Chief Trailblazer
#MakesUpWords since 1999
A culmination of her life experiences, Acadia sprang up as a blend of identities: engineer, entrepreneur, wife and mother, friend and neighbor. Marge has built a company that values each employee’s unique gifts and because of that culture, a company that delivers results to its clients. Marge has a clear focus on hiring and training the best people, and she leads with heart, a sense of humor and an authenticity that has no rival. She even makes up her own words. Wonky, right?

When not constantly managing change and growth, Marge is spending time with her husband Mike and being a supportive mom to her grown kids. She is active, too. In the office, you’ll often find her working on her treadmill. Out in God’s creation, Marge is biking, hiking or kayaking and always channeling her energy to learn and grow, and help everyone she meets be the best version of themselves.
Mike Murphy - Acadia Team
Mike Murphy
Director of Business Development
 
Title: Head of Global Trends
#NeverSetsTheBarLow since 2013
With an extensive and varied background in engineering, sales, and marketing, Mike knows how to advise our clients because he’s been where they are. He’s always looking ahead to the next goal. A natural adventurer he takes the team into the future with his strong leadership. Please don’t ever tell Mike it can’t be done. That just fuels his New York-based drive to prove you wrong. (and makes us all have to work harder)

To say that Mike is a fan of baseball is an understatement. Outside of his family (he's married to Acadia's president Marge), it is his biggest passion. In the 80’s he pitched for the Indians and helps coach youth throughout the Dayton region. He also enjoys keeping up with his son who plays for the Oakland A’s and helping his daughter with her career as a certified athletic trainer. He also is a freelance (emphasize free) home repair specialist for his daughter's vintage home.
Alan_headshot
Alan Beck
Technical Inside Sales and IT Manager
 
Title: Creator of Opportunities
#DocumentHoarder since 2011
Alan is a list-building, campaign-managing, report-analyzing sharp shooter. He is known to be a great listener and that is the key to his success. He translates what our customers need into action and makes sure we deliver results. Alan thrives when presented with a complex problem. He will dig into it, dissect all the options and then nail a decision on how to move forward.

He is married to another Acadia employee, Shelley, and together they share a deep faith and their awesome backyard pool. Alan dabbles in IT, talks like he knows a lot about sports and politics and delivers it in such a way that you are unsure if he’s being totally serious. He plays a large role in creating the team environment at Acadia and we are lucky to have his calm and confident ways.
Jessie Young - Acadia Team
Jessie Young
Campaign Coordinator
 
Title: Project Maestro
#TrafficCop since 2012
Jessie is our in-house cat herder, a risk-taker and an out-of-the-box thinker. Her background in the medical field adds an element of strict adherence to process. She prepares and launches every single campaign we undertake. She knows every customer and makes sure that Acadia meets every deliverable. Jessie is also our fearless software guru and helps us use technology to be more efficient, focused and on-track to meet our customers’ goals. (She might actually be the real boss.)

When not at the office, Jessie can be found out and about at a car show, seeing the sights or just enjoying time with her husband and two daughters. Inspired by music, she will say, “When words fail, music speaks.” Brilliant.
Kim Hoggan - Acadia Team
Kim Hoggan
Digital Marketing Specialist
 
Title: Digital Prophet
#GoGetter since 2012
Sleuthing is Kim's strong suit. She doesn’t stop until she gets to the right person. Her work can be lonely at times while she researches on behalf of our customers, but she has a keen knack for quickly developing rapport with those whom she is calling. As someone who is dependable and has sticktoitiveness, Kim has helped key customers drive incredible revenue growth. She sets the bar high.

Almost an empty nester, when not working Kim can be found paddle boarding, hiking and biking (which is better than driving) to visit the many local breweries in Holly Springs, North Carolina. She used to live in Dayton and can be coaxed to come visit with the promise of the famous Bill’s Donuts. That helps, but what really inspires her is seeing others achieve their goals.
Delaney Bak - Acadia Team
Delaney Bak
Digital Marketing Specialist
 
Title: Digital Prophet
#QuickDesignSomething since 2017
Delaney is our go-to design consultant. She works internally on Acadia marketing as well as on inbound campaigns for clients. Delaney is a great blend of creativity and attention to detail. She thrives on designing solutions that aren’t just pretty pictures. Delaney recently graduated from the University of Dayton where she studied Marketing and Communications. After interning with us for a year, we are excited to have her with us full time.

Delaney can be found either spending time with close friends and family or exploring the outdoors in her free time. She also enjoys playing with her dog and loves all animals. She lives by the quote “Have courage and be kind” as it encourages her to step out of her comfort zone and reminds her to see the best in others.
Bridget
Bridget Fricke
Operations Manager
 
Title: Operations Optimization Wrangler
#StayingOrganized since 2018

With a mixed background in biomedical engineering and entrepreneurship, Bridget is no stranger to navigating the complex technical and industrial B2B space. As our Operations Manager, she implements strategic initiatives and has a knack for bringing together the right people, technology, and resources that will create the best result. Bridget doesn't shy away from a challenge. She thrives when she feels her brain is engaged and is able to take on multiple projects.

Bridget's friends describe her as "motivated and determined, yet easy-going". She enjoys playing sports such as volleyball and she uses this passion in her volunteer work with special needs children. When's she's not playing sports or volunteering, Bridget loves spending her free time with family. She is one of our newest additions to the team and we're excited to have her.

Tami Randall - Acadia Team
Tami Randall
HR and Quality Assurance
 
Title: Director of People and Culture
#HRQAPDQ since 2006
Tami has a background in business administration and has a keen understanding of compassionate communication. She is an excellent listener and a supportive team member always at the ready to seek the best solution and have fun doing it. As an expert in quality assurance, Tami makes sure our documentation is up to snuff, consistent and brings tremendous value to our clients. She also wears a different hat entirely and sees to it that we are hiring the best people to join the Acadia family. She recently took on the role of Operations Manager/Puppeteer, making sure each client's needs are being met. Our very own celebrity, she even has a patent.

Tami loves family, friends, wine tasting and traveling and not necessarily in that order. A nature lover for sure, she also likes human nature and is drawn toward people of high integrity. Everyone at Acadia values Tami for her forthrightness and honest advice. She brings in treats, too, which helps.
Shelley Beck - Acadia Team
Shelley Beck
Lead Development Representative
 
Title: Lead Development Detective
#AlwaysBeKind since 2011

Shelley is one of our seasoned LDRs, and has the results to prove it. Loaded with self-confidence and a positive attitude, she thrives when she makes a solid connection for our clients. Shelley is a real team player, willingly sharing her knowledge and secrets to success. Daring and fearless by nature, she does not give up easily. She is a real inspiration to our team!

Outside of work, Shelley is an estate sale junkie, looking for the next greatest bargain. To stay in shape, she swims and practices yoga and crochets to relax. Shelley along with her husband and fellow employee, Alan, take our family-like work environment to a whole new level.
Lisa Moore - Acadia Team
Lisa Moore
Data Management Specialist
 
Title: Data Storyteller
#DataGirl since 2011
Lisa cleans data. She organizes data. She trends data. She delivers that data in a way that Acadia can make informed decisions. She is content to work solo, but loves collaborating with a team. Lisa gets really excited (doesn’t everyone?) when she develops repeatable processes that improve the accuracy and efficiency of data reporting. Don’t ask her to present in front of a group, though. That makes this strong, dependable woman weak in the knees.

It is not surprising then that when she is not working, she’s still doing precision work like sewing and crochet, and no doubt analyzing lots of stuff. A mother of 4 and grandma to 6, Lisa is a true mother hen. Do not cross her family or friends. She might bite.
Eileen Simon - Acadia Team
Eileen Simon
Quality Assurance and Content Writer
 
Title: Director of Storytelling
#Wordsmith since 2017
As a librarian by trade, Eileen brings a unique perspective to Acadia, and is an expert at spotting and creating great content. She has put these skills to use as our contract content writer and now in QA as a full-fledged Acadia employee. She works hard to make sure what we do and what we document are the same thing, and we still count on her to write the great content our clients have come to expect. 

In her free time, she knits, crochets, and grows her stash of leftover yarn, especially between events at her kids' swim meets and dance competitions. Eileen feels accomplished when she makes something for dinner that her husband and three kids all like to eat. Always at the ready with a Simpsons quote, she can be counted on to lend an ear, a kind thought, and offer her favorite dessert recipe. But mostly, she's got a great sense of humor and we're happy she finally joined us.
Kim.png
Kim Petro
Bookkeeper/Office Manager
 
Title: Money Maven
#ThatDoesNotGoThere since 2014
Kim is an organization queen and she loves to find creative solutions to new problems. She doubles as our in-house bookkeeper and office manager where she is responsible for the financial well-being of the business while blessing the team with a full supply of coffee. Her fun-loving and inviting personality makes her a friend to all and a highly valued member of the Acadia family.

Outside of work, Kim is passionate about being active in the community. She enjoys gardening, singing, and tabletop gaming. She can often be found out supporting local businesses and is inspired by the world around her. Kim cares deeply about the people she surrounds herself with and her energetic personality is contagious making the workplace that much more exciting. 
Paula_headshot-1
Paula Thornton
Business Development Representative
 
Title: Business Development Detective
#KnowledgeIsPower since 2018

Paula has quickly become an important asset at Acadia. As a BDR, she works on behalf of clients to assist them in connecting with other businesses. She describes this role as an outlet for creative conversations which allow her to make a positive impact for businesses. Paula has 25 years of sales experience, an associate degree in Paralegal Studies, and a B.S. in Organizational Management. While her enthusiasm and fun spirit are contagious around the office, she has no problem getting down to business and thrives in a productive environment.

Paula is passionate about volunteering with youths as they inspire her to be the best she can be. She wears her heart on her sleeve and her friends describe her an incredibly kind and passionate person. Paula is a true team player and is a vital member of our Tuesday trivia team.

Ranita
Ranita Cheema
Junior Client Relationship Manager
 
Title: Relationship Builder
#CreativeSupport since 2018

Ranita is a real go-getter. She has a broad range of experience and continues to learn new things. Her love for animals led her to become a veterinary assistant before deciding on a career in marketing. Her past experiences have given her the ability to work in fast-paced environments demanding strong organizational, technical, and interpersonal skills. Her recent education has also allowed her to develop experience in analyzing market strategies. As an intern, Ranita provides an integral support system for "the creative minds that be." She's not afraid to voice her opinion and brings a lot of fresh ideas to our team.

When she's not hitting the books, Ranita loves fitness and photography. She also enjoys taking her dog for long walks to spend quality time together. She's inspired by other's accomplishments as they drive her to do the same. Her warm and outgoing personality makes her a perfect fit for the Acadia team.

Corey
Corey Whipp
SEO Analyst
 
Title: Keyword Master
#ThinkingOutsideTheBox since 2019
Corey has a background in teaching group exercise classes at the YMCA but most of his experience comes from helping small to medium-sized businesses with their digital marketing. He enjoys learning new skills so that he can educate others and help them reach their business goals through digital solutions. Inspired by a good challenge, Corey excels when he can work with a team to develop a creative solution to any problem. 

When Corey isn't helping us develop SEO strategies, you could probably find him at the local bar singing karaoke. Occasionally, he'll leave the signing to the professionals and enjoys attending a good concert. Also a fan of golf and baseball, Corey likes spending some time in the sun when Ohio decides to send us some nice weather.
Jack
Jack Gill
Web Development Intern
 
Title: Website Wizard
#ReallyCoolGuy since 2019
With an associate degree of business in graphic design from the Modern College of Design, Jack is our go-to guy for all things web. He is fluent in HTML and CSS, and dabbles in JavaScript making Jack a coding wizard. We don’t believe that the word “no” is in his vocabulary and it’s become a running game around the office to find something that he can’t do. This has proven to be pretty difficult as Jack will never shy away from a challenge.
 
Jack’s creativity doesn’t end at work. He enjoys creating videos and editing photos in his free time. As a game fanatic, Jack plays a wide variety of games including video games, board games, and card games. His light-hearted personality can brighten anyone’s day and we love having him on our team.
