CLEVELAND, OH, August 03, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Marquis Who's Who, the world's premier publisher of biographical profiles, is proud to present Patricia Meade with the Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award. An accomplished listee, Ms. Meade celebrates many years' experience in her professional network, and has been noted for achievements, leadership qualities, and the credentials and successes she has accrued in her field. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.
Creative business leader and marketing maven Ms. Meade operates Creative Works (CW), an integrated marketing and branding solutions provider for global, national and small businesses, since 1995. She has extensive experience in the healthcare, manufacturing and government sectors and is known for strategically leveraging innovative solutions for scalable growth, improving operational and marketing performance, updating technologies, and transforming brands and customer experiences. She stands for doing the right things in the right way and embraces change as a prerequisite for growth.
This Columbus, OH native's interest in marketing grew out of her passion for art and sports. Playing sports taught her leadership, teamwork, drive, strategy and how to succeed. Art developed her imagination, creativity, curiosity and visual communication skills. Marketing played to her strengths as she graduated from Ohio University with a Bachelor of Science in organizational communications and minors in graphic design and art. She continued her studies earning a Master in Sports Administration with an emphasis in facility management and marketing and a Master of Science in Communication with an emphasis in journalism/PR.
Over time, Ms. Meade leverages her experience and voice to build healthier lives, bottom lines and communities. Outside of work, she volunteers as publisher of MOREbratenahl, reporting primarily on local government news and advocates for a better Bratenahl. She learns by asking a lot of questions and one question led her all the way to the Ohio Supreme Court where the court unanimously ruled in her favor. The 2019 decision prohibits public bodies from voting by secret ballot on public business in open meetings. The news made national, state and local headlines which not only impacted her community, but an estimated 12 million Ohioans – now other states may follow suit.
Additionally, Ms. Meade served as a former Scenic Ohio board member, Lakeland Community College Mooreland Mansion board member, Bratenahl Shade Tree Commissioner, ODOT's Scenic Byway Advisory Committee member, is active in the Ohio Coalition for Open Government, Scenic America, Daughters of the American Revolution Moses Cleaveland-Shaker Chapter and volunteers for the National Scenic Byway Foundation and Renee Jones Empowerment Center (anti-human trafficking). She is the recipient of 28 marketing communication awards (state, national and international), one financial award, is a McGraw-Hill published author, and has sold several commissioned and non-commissioned artworks.
