What We Do

We have assembled the brightest minds in media and put them to work on your brand. We ask the questions, we do the research, we create the plans that will work for you.

Our History

MPI (Marketing Partnerships International) is led by our founder and President, who knows the media business because he’s lived it his entire career. Whether on the sales side at companies such as WMAQ-TV and ESPN or representing advertisers in securing great placements at great rates, Bill has never wavered on his commitment to help business grow in both the short and long term. Bill began his career on the editorial side of the media business, earning a degree in journalism at Drake University and was soon bitten by the advertising bug. 

Bill worked his way into management at major media outlets. He founded Marketing Partnerships International in 1995, with a simple goal: discover ways to use media to help clients promote and grow their business in a significant way. Since opening its doors 25 years ago, MPI has served clients locally, regionally, nationally and internationally. And because he values the PARTNERSHIP above all, Bill put it in the name of his company. He is perhaps most proud of the results our clients receive.
