PHOENIX—Al Maag, who recently retired from his position as chief communications officer of global technology distributor Avnet, has launched MaagComm+, which will work with select clients to develop unconventional solutions for marketing communications challenges.
Maag previously spearheaded the branding, public relations, internal and external communications, and community relations activities for Fortune 500 business-to-business technology companies Avnet and Molex over the course of four decades. He was also the chairman of the Business Marketing Association from 2011-2012.
The consultancy will draw upon the expertise of Maag’s marketing communications network, creating a virtual think tank of creative firms and individuals. Initial resources include the fast-growing marketing firm Spark Design, where Maag will be a consultant-in-residence; Jan Miller, a writer who has been working with Maag for almost 30 years; global public relations firm Brodeur Partners; and Zack Maag, a freelance audio visual producer.
