In recent weeks the Upright team had to say a difficult good-bye to our friend and work family member, Diana Hadden. After a three year battle with cancer, she passed away on April 26, 2022.
Diana joined Upright Communications on Monday, September 10th, 2018. Many on our team already knew her from working with her through a client.
To say Diana was a dependable and talented professional only reveals a small part of her relationship with us. Through her dedication and abilities, she brought confidence and energy to our group.
Looking back now, what was remarkable was the impact of her presence and personality. From the beginning, she graced her co-workers and clients with a joyful blend of humor, positivity, and encouragement.
The Upright Communications team is both proud and grateful to be celebrating 25 years of serving the digital marketing needs of our clients. Since our founding, we’ve been dedicated to creating new sales opportunities for businesses in local, national, and international markets.
The marketing industry has seen dramatic evolution and transformation since the inception of the commercial internet. As an experienced marketing professional, our founder, Greg Frye, had the foresight to see those changes on the horizon in the early 90’s. By 1996, two years before the launch of Google, he started Upright Communications and began helping clients “stand up and join the evolution.”
This week the world will ring in a new year. As we sing ‘Auld Lang Syne’ this season, we might not be reflecting on the passing year with quite the same fondness and sentimentality as we have in prior days. Let’s face it – 2020 was strange and stressful, and most of us are very glad to see it go.
While we are happy to welcome 2021, we can acknowledge that 2020 had it’s positive side. When it comes to doing business, I think we all can say we learned a lot about perseverance, adaptation, and determination. (more…)
As we reflect on the holiday season, each of us at Upright Communications sends our best wishes and sincere thanks to you, our extended “business family”. Perhaps this year more than ever, we want all of you to know how much we appreciate the opportunity to work with you. (more…)
Scott Clausen, aka “the Reggae Ringer,” shares his favorite way to give back during the holiday season.
The Upright team is proud to work with some really fantastic clients, and from time to time we like to brag about them. Scott Clausen, President of Glacier Technology of Plymouth, Minnesota is our latest example. Recently we learned that Scott was featured on a local news channel, WCCO 4 News CBS Minnesota, to represent the Salvation Army by sharing his experience. (Watch the clip here). (more…)
For many, this Thanksgiving will seem much different than the holiday has traditionally been in the past. Faces will be missing from family celebrations and groups gathered at the table will be significantly smaller.
Political turmoil, a health crisis, and an uncertain economy may have many of us feeling somewhat lost and fearful in a way we’ve not experienced before. While times like these are trying, they also offer us an opportunity to be grateful. Even if that means we have to look a little harder to find the things for which we can be thankful. (more…)
