Salinas, CA – TMD is happy to offer no cost consulting help to the industry in these challenging times. Whether its reviewing messaging to partners, customers, or consumers, strategizing for what comes next, figuring out how to capitalize on a digital audience that is larger than ever, or just having someone outside of your company to bounce ideas off of or vent, TMD is here for any company in the fresh food and agriculture realm.
Karen Brux, Managing Director of the Chilean Fresh Fruit Association had this to say about TMD, “I was happy to use TMD as a resource to discuss the current state of the industry. It was helpful to gain their marketing perspective during this turbulent time we are all navigating.”
TMD has reached out to our clients to let them know we remain open, but we are getting calls from the industry asking if we are still open, so we also wanted to share our company status with the broader agriculture community.
As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, TMD instituted a number of new procedures for the health of our staff and clients. On Monday, March 16, 2020, for our employees’ safety and in anticipation of the “Shelter In Place” orders that subsequently went into effect in Monterey, Santa Cruz and San Benito Counties and 24 hours later statewide, TMD Creative asked its non-management employees to work from home, implementing their preexisting contingency plan to work virtually, at home, and limit access to our offices to the public. “Every employee is properly connected to our office and their desktop computer, while able to work safely from home and able to be with their families during this trying time,” said Sam Spadoni, managing director.
“This was out of a desire to have and maintain healthy and competent staff, clients and business partners, without which we would not be able to accomplish our mission,” said Nicholas Pasculli, president & CEO.
Although the State of California and Monterey County has issued a Shelter in Place Order, TMD Creative and TMD Technology Solutions have been designated an essential business by the County of Monterey because we provide essential services to the government, media, healthcare, agricultural and other essential industries, https://www.co.monterey.ca.us/home/showdocument?id=87957 and as such we remain fully operational. We will maintain minimal staffing at each of our offices during normal business hours in Salinas, San Diego, Sacramento, and Dallas, to perform essential business services for our clients. In doing so, the primary client relationship managers working on the matter will coordinate all such appointments and the Firm will take precautions to follow “Social Distancing” guidelines established by the CDC.
In addition to offering free consulting services during this time, we are also happy to advise, train or troubleshoot issues with setting up or participating in virtual meetings. We have experience working in Zoom, GoToMeeting, Skype, and Google Hangouts.
“We want everyone who is interested to reach out to us and allow us to help them stay connected to their team and clients during this unprecedented time,” said Nicholas Pasculli, President & CEO. He continued, “That means our management and staff are available by phone, videoconferencing, and electronic mail to provide advice and know-how to help company leaders remain connected to their team. Creating a caring community with your team is so important and simply put, it is the right thing to do.”
TMD would like to reassure our clients, potential clients, and business partners that utilizing our technology we remain open and available to help others to do the same.
Our entire team at TMD Creative and TMD Technology Solutions is grateful for the industry continuing to trust us with your important strategic marketing and communications needs. Founded in 1999 by Nicholas Pasculli, an industry veteran TMD has been serving the needs of the industry for over 20 years and provides a full array of marketing, communications, and web related services.
