SCORE counseled Holly Jo Anderson in developing a business plan for Veritas Marketing. She said her long-time SCORE mentor, the late Tommy Thompson, helped the firm navigate through a legal situation with their former employer and was an invaluable sounding board for many years. He also advised Holly when her two partners decided to leave the firm.
Veritas Marketing has prospered in an extremely competitive, fast-changing industry in the Twin Cities market, which boasts several of the nation's largest advertising firms and dozens of others. The agency's creativity and marketing savvy have been recognized with numerous national and international awards. In addition, Holly and the agency have devoted their time and talent to helping a number of non-profit organizations, including Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Greater Twin Cities, Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute, Survivor Resources and the Minneapolis Chapter of SCORE.
Besides Tommy Thompson, Holly Jo has been helped by the following list which keeps growing: Dean Swanson, Randi Luoto, Loren Herbst, Virgil Dissmeyer, Dan Shidla, Bruce Becker, Richard Parrish, Jim Handy, Marty Worth, Greg Boettner, Marshall Jones, Mark Ratner, David Miller, Rick Barkley, Wayne Herivel, Brian Alwin and others.
