A KEY promotional video supporting the UK Central Project aimed at driving massive inward investment for Greater Birmingham and Solihull is being produced by an enterprising local company.
The showcase vision in words and pictures is now nearing completion by locally based CMA Video whose go-getting Marketing Manager Adam Snelleksz is our latest Solihull Observer and Marriott Forest of Arden Six of the Best Business Awards winner.
“We were commissioned by the Local Enterprise Partnership to create the new video and its flagship features include Birmingham Airport, HS2 , the NEC and Resorts World,” said Adam, who has increased his company’s commissions by 250 per cent since coming onboard three years ago.
Adam gained a marketing degree at Glamorgan University and then went to work in the marketing and PR department of The National Consumer Council.
From there he transferred to Birmingham City FC as Press Officer and later moved across to the City Council as Marketing Manager in the Sports and Events Department.
In this new role he headed up marketing campaigns for the Birmingham Half Marathon, the European Gymnastics competition, the World Trampoline Championships and the Diamond League athletics meetings in the city.
But his interest in the power of the video promotion was kindled when a video he produced about Birmingham helped to attract the Jamaican athletics team to use the city as their pre-London 2012 training camp.
As a result he joined the Collective Media Agency as business partner to MD Mitch Remes and went on to rebrand the company as CMA Video which has since undertaken an impressive portfolio of commissions including a films for Birmingham’s Sea Life Centre.
Adam, now aged 40, said CMA had recently supplied footage and editing services for sea life centres in Berlin and Istanbul and had also produced cinema and TV adverts for Legoland Manchester as well as Sea Life in Birmingham and Brighton.
Marriott Forest of Arden General Manager Eamonn Thompson said Adam had clearly built up an impressive track record and CMA was a fine example of the spirit of enterprise at work around the region.
