While it wasn’t a surprise to those of us at Bellmont Partners who know him well, we are thrilled owner and president Brian Bellmont has been named a Twin Cities Business 2022 Notable Leader in Marketing. This honor celebrates business leaders who have navigated the pandemic, labor and supply challenges, inflation, a social justice movement and more – all while “effectively connecting brands with their target audiences and the larger public.”
Since 1996, Brian has been invested in the success of his clients and employees, and as his business has grown, he’s continued to make thoughtful decisions – while also taking some risks – to turn our agency into what it is today. From a one-person shop in the beginning to now a team of more than 20, his leadership has led to company growth – and amazing results for our clients that span technology, tourism, manufacturing, health, professional services, nonprofits and more.
In addition to delivering work that moves the needle for clients, Brian is committed to giving back. Through our Bellmont Gives Back program, our agency donates time to work on pro bono projects in addition to giving team members paid volunteer time to use for causes important to each of us. This past year, as a member of the advisory committee, Brian helped launch Life Your Healthy Lyfe, an event focused on improving health and wellness equity for communities of color in North Minneapolis and beyond.
And while the world has changed the past few years, Brian and the rest of the leadership team have continued to foster a culture that’s supportive and people-first. With a turnover rate of zero for nearly four years plus multiple Best Places to Work awards, the facts speak for themselves.
Congratulations to Brian and all the other honorees – we’re grateful for this community of industry leaders!
