“Surround yourself with good people that have ambition. Not only will they achieve individual success, but they will inspire others and will ultimately assure the company’s success.”
TAMPA, Fla. (August 22, 2016) While continuing the celebration of their 30th anniversary, HCP Associates launched an Alumni Association on Facebook to capture its rich history of marketing professionals that helped build the firm’s reputation over the past three decades.
HCP Senior Brand Strategist/Partner Eric Polins said, “People from all over the world are posting their post-HCP successes. From former Design Manager Kevin Gosselin, now a full-time sculptor in Seattle, to former Account Manager Nicklaus Fordham, now a strategic business consultant in Copenhagen, Denmark. The stories are amazing and growing. We look forward to seeing photos of their families, adventures and also reminiscing about some great fun.”
With headquarters in Tampa for the past 30 years, HCP has provided professional consulting focused on three overlapping marketing disciplines; research, business strategy and communications. Catering to a dozen different market segments with companies and organizations throughout the state of Florida, the U.S. and around the globe, HCP is known by most as a marketing consulting and research firm.
Founder and Chairman R. Patrick Hill said, “When we started the company one of our first clients and longtime friends sent us a letter which I framed: Fred Thomas of Pinch-A-Penny encouraged us to be patient, diligent and resilient as any entrepreneurial effort takes time and will have many ups and downs. He offered important advice: ‘Surround yourself with good people that have ambition. Not only will they achieve individual success, but they will inspire others and will ultimately assure the company’s success.’ This is a mantra we lived by at our firm and still do to this day.”
HCP’s Senior Business Strategist/Partner Sean Coniglio said, “Looking back over many years, our greatest accomplishment may be the individual and collective success of our employees. While they all contributed greatly to our corporate mission, we stand proud of their contributions to the community and to their personal accomplishments as they embarked on successful careers capitalizing on the education gained at our company.”
“In a business that depends on the collective knowledge of many, keeping in touch with our many prior employees, sharing ideas and celebrating accomplishments is simply good business. In consulting we all benefit from a never-ending expansion of our knowledge base and former employees that understand our clients and our practices can be a major contributor,” Hill added.
