Rock Island, IL/May 4, 2012 – Stepping up to the marketing platform, the Quad City’s “Mr. Voice” has joined forces with the region’s only 8(a) SDB marketing firm.  Rick Davis joins the Media Link team as an Account Manager and will develop and manage new accounts.

Rick says, “I have worn many hats under the media and communications umbrella. My experience has given me a unique understanding for the time, production and placement of creative and promotional materials. I am delighted and excited to be working with Media Link because I am a “team first” person that enjoys being a resource and asset for others. I’m looking forward to my position as an Account Manager, because building new professional relationships and rekindling current ones is something I strongly value. Providing strategic, creative solutions for our clientele is something that’s within my wheelhouse!”

Rick’s career prior to Media Link afforded him an extraordinary perspective in the media and communication realm. With his extensive understanding and professionally trained eye for producing effective promotional vehicles, Rick has used his gift for many businesses, including the Quad City’s own ComedySportz, where Rick became known as “Mr. Voice”. As a sales and marketing director, Rick Davis was responsible for brand promotion through advertising mediums and clientele associations. He worked his magic to grow the customer-base by 25% over four years and launched creative outside sales initiatives. Rick’s talent for thinking outside, around and all over the box does not stop there. He earned the Gold ADDY Award for some of his writing and directing of advertising. Rick’s creative background has afforded him the opportunity to create media projects for many Fortune 500 companies, government agencies, small businesses, and non-profit organizations. Rick shines when he is performing professionally as talent for voice-over and on camera projects including radio and television ads, interactive web sites and exhibits, training videos, and corporate promotional videos. Even as Rick joins the Media Link team he still follows his passion for community involvement and building professional relationships by lending his talents to various organizations throughout the Quad Cities. Rick attended Black Hawk College in Moline, IL and Illinois State University in Normal, IL, where he found his true love…Avanti’s Gondola sandwiches.

“We are so lucky to have someone with Rick’s talent in our area and we are so excited to have him on our team”, says Natalie Linville-Mass, President of Media Link.  “He has done some amazing work over the years and will definitely give the companies we work with a real edge on their marketing efforts.”
