From startup to award-winning national service company
New Media Retailer has origins that go back over 25 years when Jeanne Brightman brought her experience in retail hardware marketing, at the wholesale level, to Norwich, NY. Here she joined a seasoned print and publishing company and used her knowledge to grow and develop one of the largest custom circular production companies in the United States. Under her leadership this company went on to produce millions of advertising circulars each year for retailers in the hardware, pet, lawn & garden, lumber and building material industries.
As with all print related industries, opportunities for growth have become dependent on the increasing needs and demands of advanced technology. Seeing this need and the opportunity to expand her ideas in the area of "New Media", Ms. Brightman formed a new company, New Media Retailer. This technology-driven company has brought together the skills of an experienced staff of IT, software development, graphic design and marketing professionals dedicated to meeting the New Media needs of retailers all around the country.
In 2014, our hard work and commitment to helping small businesses succeed online was nationally recognized by the Rental Division of True Value Hardware when we received the "2013 Service Vendor of the Year" award at the The Rental Show in Orlando, FL.
In presenting this award to New Media Retailer, True Value recognized NMR's outstanding support to True Value Rental and for the excellent service provided to the independent rental store owners and managers of the Taylor Rental Centers, Grand Rental Stations, and Just Ask Rental locations who have benefited from the NMR web and social media programs.
