BIRMINGHAM, AL--(Marketwired - Sep 18, 2015) - One of the top marketing firms in Birmingham, AL, Coast to Coast Events, has announced their plans to continue their aggressive expansion plans through the end of 2015. Since relocating their headquarters in 2012, Coast to Coast Events has expanded to twenty four new locations throughout the Southeast and Midwest. Their plans are to continue to develop managers from within their growing company in order to facilitate this growth. With Coast to Coast Events' most prominent up-and-coming managers overseeing their branches, the company is sure to see their projected goals come to pass.
In an article recently published by AL.com, Alex Walsh reported the July 2015 unemployment rate for Alabama hit an outrageous seven percent. (See his article here). Walsh stated this rate is the highest since October of 2012, nearly three years ago. Coast to Coast Events plans to help turn this around for Alabama as they open their doors to fourth quarter hiring! Bringing in entry level applicants, Coast to Coast Events hopes to enroll energetic employees in their in-house management training program, instilling an entrepreneurial spirit in career-focused employees. These employees are able to take the knowledge they learn and grow into a management role within the organization. Alex Inman is the most recent example of this internal growth, as he recently took the position of Branch Manager in Mobile, AL. Inman said of the program, "This opportunity can prepare a person for any type of obstacle and prepare you to take on and accomplish any challenge!"
When asked about the company's aggressive expansion plans in an economy touting such a high unemployment rate, Coast to Coast Events' President, Cody Lowery, pointed out the distinction of private-sector companies in Birmingham and across the state of Alabama. Lowery stated, "While the overall unemployment rate for Alabama has grown higher than it has been in years, the privately owned companies' support for the economy has also grown! Based on the most recent findings, companies like Coast to Coast Events have offered the Alabama economy MORE jobs than before, with growth of 1.7 percent."
Lowery went on to say that Coast to Coast Events prides itself on offering full-time employees benefits like career coaching, travel opportunities and the management training program. Cody Lowery currently directs the entire management training program at Coast to Coast Events and personally coaches employees in areas such as client acquisition, business development, leadership, and communications. The Birmingham, AL setting can also be credited in the company's success. In an article on Forbes, entitled, Top 10 Cities for Employee Engagement, Birmingham, AL is ranked number 8, showing 69.9% of employee engagement.
This past month, Lowery, Inman, and other Coast to Coast Events Branch Managers had the opportunity to attend a semi-annual national conference and networking event. This conference gives managers the opportunity to grow their skills individually and as a team. Not only was the Coast to Coast Events team able to learn from top entrepreneurs in their field, but also to network one-on-one with other Branch Managers at their level. Lowery stated, "The leadership conference is an amazing experience regardless of how long you've been in the business. There is always something to learn and always the opportunity for growth!" Coast to Coast Events offers travel opportunities to this type of conference to their management team for just that reason -- the opportunity for growth!
