Extra Mile Marketing was formed in early 2003, bringing together a team of consultants who each had 20+ years experience at advertising agencies, Fortune 500 firms, start-ups, and mid-sized organizations. The marketplace quickly responded to EMM's business to business marketing expertise, and Microsoft became one of its early key accounts. Over the years, several clients have been added, including T-Mobile, Ford Motor Company, and Intel Corporation, allowing EMM to gain significant expertise in developing partner channels that expand a company's reach, thereby increasing sales potential exponentially.
Some of the significant milestones include:
