Start With Different

Steve Miller
Me! (Steve Miller, President,
Welland Laike Communication)

I envisioned a marketing communication agency that would be different when I launched Welland Laike in 1994. Different in all aspects than the traditional advertising agencies I had worked for in the past, starting with:

  • Selecting and serving our customers
  • Demanding strategically-driven results before creative indulgence and inflated fees
  • Nurturing honest, respectful and healthy relationships within our firm and with our creative partners and clients

Welland Laike has evolved a great deal since it was headquartered in a backroom cubicle in 1994 with its largest law firm client. I have 30 years of experience now, and continuing education in every discipline of integrated marketing communications (IMC), including brand management, advertising and public relations.

Technology, and in particular the steady ascendance of the Internet and e-commerce, have transformed just about every aspect of HOW and WHERE we ply our craft. But the bottom line is always the bottom line: We deliver measurable results for our clients.

Sure, the mirror shows I am sprouting a few gray hairs and perhaps an extra pound or two, but the vision statement we crafted during a late night creative session so long ago still resonates in all of us today:

“Welland Laike Communication is our legacy:¬†a rocket-powered, inspirational communications¬†enterprise that attracts top talent and daring clients with matching dreams and passions.”
