2020 Eagle Award Winner – Blue Fish
Business View – October 2020 / Eagle Award Winner
For more than two decades, recognizing minority business owners has been a priority for the Mobile Area Chamber. This diversity and inclusion initiative has honored more than 100 companies and has given more than 120 awards. Meet this year’s class of Eagle Award recipients:
Owner: Marcus Neto
Address: 920 Dauphin St.
Certified: Minority Business Enterprise
Five years ago, Marcus Neto changed his business approach to incorporate local strategies. At the same time, he turned his web design business into a full-service ad agency determined to serve Mobile area small business owners like himself.
Neto says his goal is to find those willing “to make the necessary investment and changes that it takes to grow.”
While he still believes a robust website is an organization’s foundation, his expanded services now include branding, social media management, graphic design, and both traditional and digital media buys.
The company recently purchased and renovated its new digs on Dauphin Street, and is looking to hire. One way Blue Fish finds qualified individuals is through its 90-day training boot camp designed to turn job candidates into productive and confident employees.
