Ann Marie MayugaPartner and Co-Founder
Communicate better with strong messaging, media success and managing your company reputation.
Ann Marie Mayuga, co-owner and partner at AMM Communications, one of the Top Public Relations Firms in St. Louis, Missouri. She understands that communications are dynamic, evolving and must always be improved. When you take this philosophy and build a business that helps companies and not-for-profits drive sales, communicate better, and hire well, you know that you’ve found a communications professional who is obsessed with client success.
Ann Marie’s career has always been in communications either for corporations, one of the world’s largest PR firms, and not-for-profits. She’s had her fair share of incredible PR and media relations experiences from helping clients land that must-have and coveted interview which put them on the national map and managing crisis situations to being an early adapter how of how social media platforms were the next wave of must-use tools to communicate with journalists and target audiences.
If you are curious to learn more about Ann Marie’s experience versus boring you with a list of what she has done and where she has worked in this bio, please take a glance at her LinkedIn profile, https://www.linkedin.com/in/ammayuga/.
Ann Marie has two key strengths — she is a critical listener, and she can help each client understand and identify the best messaging for their organization to drive sales. AMM Communications does not take a cookie cutter approach with each client. Frankly, that is insulting because as far as we’re concerned each person and business is unique as are the business development, communication and talent recruitment solutions we offer.
Ann Marie has been involved with a number local not-for-profit boards and still stays active with a few because she is investment with making St. Louis a great place to live and do business. She spends her free time running, gardening, and during the summer months pickling and jarring every possible vegetable from her garden. She is married to Ed, and they are blessed to have a happy pack of three bulldogs – two English and a precocious French Bulldog.

So what can Ed do for your company or not-for-profit?

He knows how to teach and educate your team on how to fill the business development pipeline so that it becomes a natural skill for all your team members to learn.

He decided to have a career in sales because it’s measurable and for the sheer number of personal challenges involved with business development.
