Guidance and knowledge has been invaluable.

"It has been our pleasure to work with Lockman-Brooks Marketing Services over the past three years. Since we retained the firm, Linda's guidance and knowledge of the Charlotte community has been invaluable to us as we developed the business plan to bring the NBA back to Charlotte. With her help, the Bobcats Sports & Entertainment organization has built an excellent database of local women and minority-owned firms, and developed a community relations program that optimizes our civic engagement in the Charlotte Region."

Analyze the market and evaluate the communications needs.

"Linda did a great job in the role of Administrator of the Small Business Participation Program for the construction of the Charlotte Arena. She was strategic and made the right decisions to analyze the market and evaluate the communications needs for building awareness of the new SBE program. Linda's team exceeded the established participation goal and the Hunt organization's association with Lockman-Brooks Marketing Services has been a success in every way."
