US Markerboard Featured on American Express Open Forum
Holbrook, Massachusetts – June 1, 2011 – US Markerboard and President & CEO Scott Newman are featured on American Express Open Forum. The forum is a gathering place for business owners, leaders, and entrepreneurs to connect and collaborate on ideas. The American Express Open Forum posts exclusive articles on all aspects of business and US Markerboard is highlighted in an article named “27 Real-Life Small Business Mistakes And What They Learned.”
The article focuses on common business mistakes people may make and how they succeed after the mistake. In the article Newman spoke about previously relying on one manufacturer for a product and when that manufacturer was unable to meet the needs of US Markerboard. The company was left scrambling to find another manufacturer to fill customer orders and demands. Newman was able to work with other manufacturers to resolve the situation but stated “What I found was that having good working relationships is crucial to growing a business. There must be trust and communication to make it work. But, for better or worse the business relationship can change at any moment and for any reason and you need to be prepared and you need to have a Plan B.”.

About US Markerboard
US Markerboard is the online leader in the whiteboard and communication board industry. We have been named to the Inc. 5000 List of Fastest Growing Private Companies in America for the last four years in a row. In 1997 US Markerboard revolutionized the way people purchased whiteboards, chalkboards, and bulletin boards. Up until that point, customers had no other choice but to use a local company for these products. They were limited to the quality and design that the local companies were willing to offer. As a company that was serving the needs of local schools, institutions, hospitals and corporations, we saw an opportunity in the visual communication industry and capitalized on that need. US Markerboard is rapidly expanding its client base not only in the continental United States but world-wide as well. US Markerboard has enjoyed significant growth the last five years while providing its customers with quality products and outstanding customer service.
