AristoMedia Group Celebrates 30 Years
April 26, 2010 at 10:30 AM (PT)
Congrats to JEFF WALKER and the ARISTOMEDIA GROUP on celebrating their 30th anniversary. The company, which opened in APRIL 1980, began as a singular PR firm but now has a half-dozen specialized departments.
These departments include ARISTO P.R. which handles publicity and PR; ARISTO VIDEO which handles video promotion and marketing; ARISTOWORKS for new media; ARISTOVISION for Christian video promotion; MARCO PRODUCTIONS for secondary radio promotion; and MARCO CLUB CONNECTION, which handles dance venue marketing.
WALKER said: “No one could have predicted our industry would be where we are today when I started this company 30 years ago. I’ve witnessed so many changes over the last three decades – I’ve seen the industry turn completely upside down, in fact – that change seems to be part of the norm, now. Digital technology has permanently altered our business, and a lot of that change is positive, but it sure has made things interesting these last few years!”
WALKER also operates a domestic and international consulting business, JEFF WALKER & ASSOCIATES, founded a digital label, GMV NASHVILLE, in 2007 and most recently, established a video content and EPK distribution service called DOWNCAST in 2009.
“The last five or six years have been particularly challenging, but the positive result of that has been another period of expansion within the company. Our club department, CLUB CONNECTION, has really grown with many recent Country chart-toppers featuring more dance-friendly material, and our digital label has filled a niche for a number of artists where a traditional label doesn’t suit their needs. DOWNCAST is our most recent addition, and we’ve just expanded that service to include distribution for book new release materials,” WALKER added.
The ARISTOMEDIA GROUP is located at 1620 16th Ave. S., NASHVILLE, TN, 37211. Contact JEFF and company at (615) 269-7071 or visit www.AristoMedia.com for more information.
