Lightning Media Acquires Web Services Provider Creative EdgeCreative Edge joins Cooper Brothers group of companies (August 24, 2005)
Lightning Media announces it has acquired Creative Edge Enterprises, Inc., a well-known Internet Service Provider, and one of the top Internet design firms in the United States.
?Were very excited about this expansion, states Sharon Nichols Bourassa, Vice President/General Manager of Lightning Media. ?By integrating the Creative Edge web design team into our family of companies, we now provide a full menu of website design services and streaming content through our growing multimedia department.
Servicing a wide variety of clients for over ten years, Creative Edge maintains its business advantage through unsurpassed dedication to client service a philosophy inherent in all the companies under the Cooper umbrella: Lightning Media, The New Post Group, Novastar Digital Sound and iO Film. Creative Edges award-winning team of designers specialize in developing personal, professional and commercial websites that reflect the uniqueness of each client through creatively efficient design and functionality. Astute guidance and technical support are provided throughout the site design, programming and maintenance processes.
?Were thrilled to become part of the Lightning Media and Cooper team, enthuses Mark Stone, Creative Edge CFO and VP of business affairs. ?Society today demands the convenience of searching for and retrieving information at all hours and this generally means logging onto the Internet. Therefore, if you dont have a website, you may be losing an important client or missing that next big sale which is particularly true in the entertainment industry, Stone further states. ?With the inclusion of Creative Edges web services, there are now a vast variety of services available under one roof from editing and visual effects, through DI, conversions, and DVD replication even packaging and distribution. We feel Creative Edge brings in that extra element that will help tie the companies together, further promoting and providing public awareness to the group of companies and their respective clients through the Internet.
?Creative Edge is the perfect addition to our group of companies, comments Richard Greenberg, Executive Vice President of the group. ?Beside the telephone, the Internet is probably the most common tool being used in our industry today. Creative Edge allows us to not only maintain a clearly defined web presence, but also allows us to offer clients central data storage, retrieval and tracking tools for their ongoing work and a web presence for sales and promotion of their projects.
Creative Edges clients run the gamut from sports franchises to prominent personalities, Fortune 500 level corporations and not-for-profit social and educational organizations. In addition, Creative Edge has been recognized for its work with many of those clients receiving the ?Best Site award from Baseball Weekly for the LA Dodgers websites (1998 2000), Entertainment Weeklys ?Best Site TV for Pat Sajak, and the International Web Page Awards Competitions ?Creative Excellence Award for LA Dodgers (2000) and Pat Sajak and ?Certificate of Creative Achievement for the Staples Center.
