About

Celebrating 30 Years!

We begin our celebration of 30 remarkable years in business. We want to thank ALL of you for making this day possible.

As young producers we established Tri-Marq Communications, inspired by working the Seoul Olympics for NBC in 1988. We were 24 years old and could not imagine where we would be today! 

From that moment forward, we pursued a vision of storytelling, we built friendships along the way and hopefully played a role in shaping our production community. It has been the ride of a lifetime!

The journey has been the reward. We started small, working out of our homes in Wisconsin and Illinois. We grew slowly, navigating through ever-changing technology and traveling across the country and back a few times. We have become the organization we are today, a group of dedicated professionals creating amazing media and events around the world. We strive each day to be the best creative company, delivering captivating products.

We know it takes a community of like-minded people to be successful. And for those people who touch our lives through our work, we are grateful. We know we could not have done it alone.

To our clients, many who have become friends, thank you. Thank you for trusting us with your story, your brand and reputation. We value the opportunity to collaborate with you. Through long days, deadlines and a lot of laughter we have been successful together. We look forward to continuing our alliance with you.

To our staff, all of you throughout the years, thank you for the care and passion you put into every project. Your commitment to the highest level of professionalism is the benchmark of our success. It is empowering, and we are lucky to have you on our team.

To our vendors and business partners, friends who have touched our lives from humble beginnings throughout the decades, we are honored by our bonds. We respect the talent that you bring to every Tri-Marq project.

And finally, to our families. You embraced our entrepreneurial spirit from the start and graced us with your unconditional support. Our work takes us to faraway places, for days and weeks at a time. Thank you for your patience when we’re working long hours and for helping us celebrate our milestones. Your love and care are unwavering.

Today re-dedicate ourselves to delivering innovative thinking and creative solutions that provide value to our customers, while inspiring our teams to be the best in the business.

In Gratitude,

Jim Culhane and Chris Johnson
