Phillp Nones Joins Board of Directors of The Upper Shore Manufacturing & Business Council
July 18, 2007 – Phillip Nones has been named to the Board of Directors of the Upper Shore Manufacturing & Business Council (USMBC). Nones, who is one of the four principals of Mullin/Ashley Associates, joins two other representatives from Kent County serving on the USMBC’s Board. He will serve a three-year term through June 2010.
The USMBC’s mission is to help businesses and organizations in Caroline, Dorchester, Kent, Queen Anne’s and Talbot Counties on Maryland’s Eastern Shore improve their competitiveness and profitability, as well as to encourage development and educational enhancements in the region. While membership is open to any organization or individual having an interest in the economic and educational improvement and development of business and industry in the region, many USMBC members are manufacturing companies, including most of the major manufacturing employers active in the USMBC’s five-county region.
Nones joined Mullin/Ashley Associates in 1990, and he has been director of client services since 1998. Established in 1978, Mullin/Ashley Associates is a communications, PR and market research firm serving industrial, commercial, healthcare and service organizations.Commenting on the invitation to join the USMBC Board, Nones stated that because of his longtime experience with business-to-business markets, he believes he can make a contribution to the organization as a Board member. “Although Mullin/Ashley supports clients in six states stretching from Georgia to Ohio, we have always worked with companies right here on the Mid-Shore,” he said. “Over the years, we’ve been privileged to work with key manufacturers located in all five counties served by the Council, including such firms as Cambridge International, Celeste Industries, Dixon Valve, Zodiac and others.”
