Vendor Hall of Fame

Holland advertising: interactive considers our vendors
an important part of our team.

Every month, Holland honors a vendor for their service to our agency. It’s a tradition since 1991, and every team member contributes to the selection process. Our monthly winner, along with their employer, receives a letter detailing the exemplary and value-added service they have provided to the agency and our clients.

As a special thank you, all our vendors are invited to our annual St. Patrick’s Day Vendor Party for hors d’oeuvres, camaraderie. With vendors from Dayton, Columbus, Indianapolis, Louisville and Lexington in attendance, it’s a party not to be missed.

Like our clients, our vendors are part of the Holland family, and we believe that no good deed should go unrecognized.
