Online PR News WALLED LAKE, Michigan – April 16, 2013 – Halo Programs, a leading customer relationship marketing firm, and its owner have received three awards based on business achievement and success. Local Michigan organizations recently honored the company for making big strides in a struggling economy.
The Best Small Business Award is presented by the Michigan Small Business & Technology Development Center (MI-SBTDC). Halo Programs was one of 12 companies selected for the award from among 13,000 small businesses eligible for the honors. As a company whose owner has been active with the MI-SBTDC, the database marketing firm was chosen for the award based on its success in increasing sales, creating new employment positions and improving its business strategy.

The company has undergone significant restructuring under King’s leadership, expanding its database marketing systems and creating personalized cross-media marketing solutions for service businesses internationally.
King was individually honored with two awards. The Emerging Leader Award from Wayne State University was presented based on his entrepreneurial instincts.
