Clark CSM Strengthens Collaboration with Break the Ice Media

Rochester, NY – Two marketing communications agencies in the Pittsford area–Break the Ice Media (BTIM) and Clark CSM Marketing Communications – have kicked off 2016 by co-locating in a shared office space in Pittsford, N.Y. The two teams have been working on joint client projects for two years and have decided to strengthen their collaboration with this move. 

Break the Ice Media and Clark CSM Marketing Communications remain two separate businesses, with separate and shared clients alike. This move and co-location will benefit the businesses as they continue to grow and expand their marketing expertise and services – and work to better serve new and current clients. Shared clients will see faster communication between the two teams, improving efficiency and productivity. Combined marketing expertise will allow for more ideas, better campaigns, and greater results.  

“In thinking of ways that we can be more effective for our clients, we looked at the recent trend in co-working spaces,” says Nicole Mahoney, CEO of Break the Ice Media. “We decided to incorporate that trend into a new business model. This co-location will benefit current and future clients in the wider range of expertise and services we are able to offer.” 

“With this move, we are allowing two teams to put their heads together for better brainstorming, idea sharing, and collaboration,” said Glenn Clark, President of Clark CSM. “Our team has a natural synergy with the Break The Ice Media team, we share similar values, interests and commitment to our clients.”
