Why is BBI Marketing so successful at what we do?

It's because of our team! We are a group of professionals with diverse backgrounds and experiences who have all come together to create something unique.

Bonnie Brown gained much of her experience working with the Domino's Pizza Franchise system. After attending The University of South Florida, she helped build a printing and direct mail company with John Phillips that eventually serviced most of the 5,000 US Domino's stores. She co-owned a Domino's store with her husband in New Jersey and also worked as the Marketing Director for the Disney Orlando Domino's stores.

She started BBI Marketing in 2009 and focused on running the very best Hotel Marketing Program. In 2013, Bonnie was once again able to bring her passion for raising sales through direct mail to her wide variety of customers.

Building a company like BBI Marketing has been extremely rewarding, but her greatest joy is raising her three beautiful daughters Sydney, Savannah, & Sierra.

Josh Walker

Josh Walker Production Manager

Josh joined the BBI team after moving to Florida from Missouri, and we're beyond thrilled to have him here. He's brought a significant amount of knowledge regarding print and direct mail into the production facility. He heads the majority of pressing projects with production and is the primary reason BBI is able to turn around products quickly and efficiently.

We asked Josh to comment on the significant change from Missori to Florida and so far he loves it. The only downside? Hurricanes, which he got a taste of when Irma rolled through the area. But so far, he's enjoying it.

Outside of work, Josh enjoys spending time with his kids.
