Recognizing the ways in which marketing can drive economic growth in communities, co-owners Ron Mattocks and Josh Sherretts formed Bull Moose Progressive Marketing in the spring of 2017 as a part of Historia Inspired, LLC. Born of a hunch that rural SME businesses were underserved in their need for strategic marketing proved true as the agency’s client portfolio grew quickly in less than a year.
Believing that a world-class agency could operate from a rural community, the owners selected their hometown of Meadville, Pennsylvania where Bull Moose’s offices are located in the historic Parkside Commons along the city’s scenic Diamond Park. Here they hoped to further aid in the region’s economic growth by offering job marketing and tech-related opportunities to local residents, and to date, Bull Moose now employs over 20 full-time employees and skilled freelancers.
While Bull Moose's work covers a range of industry sectors to include higher education, nonprofit, government, professional services, and construction, our expertise is in destination (tourism) and industrial (manufacturing) marketing--two industries with the greatest impact on economic growth in rural markets. Because we live in a connected world that eliminates geographic barriers, Bull Moose’s clients are not only located in Western Pennsylvania and Eastern Ohio but also in the Midwest and Southeast regions as well.
Our agency provides the most value when we function as a true partner in helping our clients develop and implement impactful marketing strategies. As a true partner, Bull Moose offers a level of transparency uncommon with most agencies. Our clients never have to wonder about what’s going on with marketing as we establish clear work priorities and maintain regular communication. What’s more, we hold ourselves accountable through performance reporting and educating stakeholders to understand the value behind our efforts.
Ultimately, Bull Moose views what we are doing as more than just offering marketing services. We believe that the right marketing strategy can drive growth and that growth should translate into more opportunities for people to enjoy the communities where they work and live.
