Through her personal leadership as a donor and volunteer, Elaine demonstrates how the American Red Cross remains a symbol of hope locally and across the globe. The Tiffany Circle has expanded into Canada, Great Britain and many other countries.

“Thank you so much for your amazing work for our firm. I am really impressed with what Lyerly Agency has done (and I am pretty hard to impress). It is far above my expectations.” – Daniele Donahoe, President, Rinehart Wealth and Investment Advisory

 

“We needed help fast. Lyerly jumped right in and created a strong, memorable campaign for community awareness and education. And, not only is this serving our short term goals, but it will also help take us to the next level with our customer service.  Lyerly is a strong, strategic partner – and they exemplify customer service at its best.” – Haley Gentry, Deputy Aviation Director – Business & Innovation, Charlotte Douglas International Airport

 

“Our involvement with the Lyerly Agency has been a great experience. Over the last three years our needs have included media plans, campaign materials, graphics, copy and sometimes just good ideas and sound advice.  At every turn, Lyerly was there to outline the opportunity and ensure  successful follow through. Though I know better, it would seem that Elaine and Melia only have one client – us.  They don’t have agency staff to deal with the ‘smaller issues’ – they deal with each issue themselves, so we never have bring another staffer up to speed. Lyerly delivers what we need when they say they will – complete and ready to go. To top it off, Elaine and Melia are great people – enjoyable to spend time and work with.  They approach business as a partnership, not a job.  It’s a pleasure to work with Lyerly.” – Tim Patterson, President, Anne Springs Close Greenway

The tools that were created for us even five years ago, are still effective and have grown with us. And despite the intensely busy schedules, and full client list, everyone at Lyerly treats us as if we are their only customer. With 23 years in this field, I can say that they are truly a standout in this industry, and I am grateful for all the ways they have contributed to the non-profit sector.” – Denise Cubbedge, Director of Development, Anne Springs Close Greenway

“We worked with Lyerly Agency to develop a manufacturing careers awareness campaign known as ‘Make-It-In-Union County.’ From naming and branding to marketing strategy and creative execution Elaine and Melia Lyerly and their team worked so well with a broad cross-section of the community to develop the campaign. Their interaction included focus group meetings with students, parents and teachers as well as an audit with decision makers from a variety of manufacturing firms across Union County. They boiled down a considerable amount of data and input to a campaign effort that has continued to gain momentum. We were very pleased with the deliberate, methodical and creative process Lyerly Agency used to develop the “Make-It-In-Union County” campaign. The initial investment has continued to pay dividends.” – Ron Mahle, Assistant Director, Monroe-Union County Economic Development

This brand is the focal point for building visibility for what manufacturers have to offer. The Lyerly team provided the leadership, responsiveness and teamwork we needed for a positive launch and long-term campaign success.” – Helen Moore, HR Manager, Greiner Bio-One North America

I trust Lyerly and their team based on years of success as PR professionals and their relationships in the Charlotte area media market.” – Amy Wright, VP Marketing, Wastequip

Re: Warlick Family YMCA name unveiling surprise event)  “What an incredible day that our community and the Warlick family experienced. You and your team outdid yourself from start to finish. Andy Warlick was really speechless and surprised. I really appreciate all your hard work — especially on such short notice and working over the Thanksgiving Holiday. There is but one word, and that is a simple but heartfelt…… Thank You! It was a pleasure and honor working with you.” – Gene R. Matthews II, David Belk Cannon Foundation

 

 “Lyerly Agency is not only very professional, but also delivers engaging marketing programs that exceed all of the Key Performance Indicators that were set for the program. I had the pleasure of working with the Lyerly team to develop and execute a National Cause Marketing campaign. We did not give them much notice and they had to pull together a complete program, including a timeline that we would execute on with key marketing milestones. They did this in a short period of time and we hit all of the milestones set for ourselves, including a National Media Tour that reached more consumers than we had anticipated. I would highly recommend Lyerly Agency if you want a sharp, innovative team to exceed your expectations, as they did mine.” – Alyson Bell, Former Vice President Marketing Red Heart Yarns – North America
