Southern States Management Group is a New Orleans based marketing firm that specializes in managing In-Store Marketing programs for our clients’ products and services. Our client base has expanded from marketing sports and entertainment venues, to working with leaders in satellite television and consumer electronics. With the enormous success of our In-Store Marketing programs, Southern States has developed a major presence in some of the country's largest chain retailers.
Founded in 2005, Southern States Management Group was created to acquire and retain customers in a personalized manner for all types of companies. In 2009 we relocated our offices to New Orleans to act as headquarters for our regional campaigns. Today, we lead this area in outsourced marketing and in-store marketing campaigns.
Our company seeks candidates with entrepreneurial spirit who are excited to start with our company at the entry level and grow into an upper level management position. Over the course of the last year we have expanded our client portfolio and grown into new markets. Our goal is for select candidates to complete our training program and ultimately oversee new programs, markets, and locations.
Southern States Management follows a philosophy of 100% promotion from within. Various companies boast this, but Southern States Management actually follows it. Every person in our organization starts off at the same position regardless of degrees or experience. Our philosophy is “If you haven’t done it, you can’t teach it.” Associates are promoted through our program based on three factors: work ethic, ability to manage people and clients, and aptitude for learning. All of these factors are controlled by the person. There is no seniority, politics or hierarchy. We have a very cohesive team environment that we take great pride in.
Our training program is designed for individuals to begin their careers at the entry level stages. We develop individuals from entry level stages of marketing and client relations to ultimately develop their management skills. These individuals will then manage and oversee a new market.
Loyalty is the backbone of the Southern States Management Group culture. With a history of continued growth, not cutbacks, we believe that to be the best in the business, we must find and develop talent and loyalty from the ground up. Responsibilities are earned through performance, not seniority. We believe that good business depends upon people of varying backgrounds, resources, and skills, while allowing those people the opportunity for management and success. Our personnel standards revolve around an individual’s character, personality, and drive; not solely education and experience.
