Aimark, Inc. Takes the Spotlight as Florida's Fastest Growing Marketing Firm

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwired - Feb 15, 2016) - Determination and an unparalleled student mentality jolted Aimark, Inc. into the spotlight last year as they far surpassed projections. While clients of Aimark say the firm is continuously revolutionizing the field of marketing, projections for 2016 proclaim the company is gearing up for another record-breaking year.

Director of Operations, Jon Khani, aided in the expansion of nine offices in 2015 and clinched the number one spot for production nationally for more than five months straight. This is an achievement sought after by many, and achieved by very few throughout the nation.

As the organization continues to reach new heights month after month, Aimark's management team shifts their focus to the growth and development process within each branch. "We are looking for individuals with a student mentality and the hunger for more. We will teach, train and mentor an individual and provide them an opportunity to lead and develop others, in order to further the growth of the organization as a whole."

When asked what the key contributor to the overall growth of the company has been in the last year, Jon said, "The cycle of development has evolved tremendously. I spent the last year traveling to the top offices through out the nation figuring out exactly what makes them tick. The trick was to come back to Orlando and implement everything I learned."

As business continues to boom, Jon and his management team began to receive national recognition last year upon receiving an invitation to the annual business meeting and award ceremony held at the Atlantis Resort in Nassau, Bahamas. At the meeting, Jon was nominated as the Manager of the Year. Months later, he was recognized for outstanding production and was invited to the annual 'meeting of the minds' in Las Vegas, Nevada. For the future, he has his sights set on winning the trip to Super Bowl 51, which would be another landmark achievement in his career.

Goals for the new year do not stop there. Aimark, Inc. currently spans across Florida in Orlando, Jacksonville, Tallahassee, New Port Richie, and West Palm Beach. Their territory continues into Lafayette, Indiana, and Saginaw, Michigan. Two more expansions are scheduled to roll out in February. The team expects to expand into at least another 15 locations this year, reaching an impressive 25 offices by years end.

Aimark prides themselves for creating a competitive, fun and family environment. "We are all in this together. We strive to make this a business that you are proud to be a part of," Jon explained.

As the first quarter comes to a close, the pace has been set and the future continues to look bright for Aimark, Inc.

    Trump adviser eyes entitlement cuts to plug U.S. budget gaps

    A top economic adviser to President Donald Trump said on Monday he expects U.S. budget deficits of about 4 percent to 5 percent of the country's economic output for the next one to two years, adding that there would likely be an effort in 2019 to cut spending on entitlement programs. "We have to be tougher on spending," White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow said in remarks to the Economic Club of New York, adding that government spending was the reason for the wider budget deficits, not the Republican-led tax cuts activated this year.

    More than 200 women who attended Christine Blasey Ford’s high school, including actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus, have signed a letter saying they believe the California professor’s allegations that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her. Louis-Dreyfus tweeted Monday afternoon that she added her name to the letter, which was signed by alumnae of Holton-Arms, an all-girls college-prep school in Bethesda, Md. Louis-Dreyfus said she graduated from the private school in 1979. “We believe Dr. Blasey Ford and are grateful that she came forward to tell her story,” the letter reads.

Enbridge signed the first deal toward the end of August after agreeing to terms with MLP Spectra Energy Partners (NYSE: SEP) to pay $3.3 billion for the 17% of the company it doesn't already own. The all-stock deal represents a 9.8% increase from Enbridge's initial offer, driven in large part by the improvement in the MLP marketplace since it first proposed the transaction.

    Brett Kavanaugh Can’t Be Trusted. We Know Because We Worked as Counsel to Senators When He Was in the Bush White House

    The events of this weekend only make it clearer the Senate must not act in haste. At the very least, the Senate should not vote on his nomination until still-secret documents from his time in the George W. Bush White House are made public and until the sexual misconduct allegations that have just become public are thoroughly investigated. Kavanaugh’s nomination to the D.C. Circuit in July 2003 was highly controversial because of his role in very partisan matters, including judicial nominations.

    SunPower is based in San Jose, California but produces most of its solar products in Mexico and the Philippines. The exemption covers SunPower's premium, high-efficiency interdigitated back contact (IBC) cells and modules, which the company argued stood apart from the cheap, commoditized imports that dominate the market and were the target of the tariffs. "With today's decision that SunPower's highly differentiated IBC cells and modules are excluded from tariffs, we are able to turn the page," SunPower Chief Executive Tom Werner said in a statement.

    China's arsenal in US tariff row shrinks but it has other weapons

    With Donald Trump now planning to hit roughly half China's exports with higher tariffs, Beijing finds itself outgunned as it imports far less from the United States and cannot fire back dollar-for-dollar. Trump said Monday he would impose 10 percent tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese goods from September 24, adding to levies already put on $50 billion of products in the summer. The US imported around $500 billion worth of goods from China last year.
