Valley businesswomen Kelly Billings and Mara Prendergast have launched a new marketing firm, Pivotal Marketing Partners, which specializes in the developer, architecture, engineering and construction community by providing strategic marketing collateral development and design as well as complete project pursuit services.

Billings and Prendergast both have been in the construction industry for more than a decade, most recently with The Weitz Company where they worked together for the past 3 years.

“It was just the right time for us in our careers and so far, we are receiving a great response from the industry,” Prendergast says. “We are finding that firms are ready to try a new approach – from strategy to design – and that’s where we can really provide unique perspectives and fresh ideas. That’s where we provide The Missing Piece to their marketing efforts.”

“Mara and I are passionate about delivering our clients the highest quality marketing product,” Billings says. “Our goal is to understand and clearly communicate the strengths and unique differentiators of our clients to support their growth in Arizona through winning project pursuits and developing sophisticated collateral.”

Prendergast, LEED AP, received her BS in Business Marketing from University of Nebraska and was employed with The Weitz Company for more than 3 years with prior marketing positions at HDR and Kiewit.

Billings, LEED AP, received a Bachelors in Business Administration from the University of North Dakota and a Masters in Business Administration from the University of Phoenix. She was with The Weitz Company for 8 years and held prior positions with J.F. Shea Company and ABF Consulting Engineers.
