About crest marketing
we (really!) support nonprofits and good causes
Our clients’ passions for their causes are contagious, so it is easy to be motivated each morning to work on their projects. We don’t seek to be heroes… we seek to make heroes by helping impactful organizations help our communities.
Our success is the result of almost three decades of return clients and referrals. Our purpose is fueled by the thousands of lives we are able to touch through our clients.
We are driven by the fact that our work makes an impact in our community and world.
who we are
Crest Marketing, Inc. is an award-winning, full service, women-run, integrated marketing and communications agency in Torrance, California – 20 miles south of Los Angeles. For over a quarter-century, Crest has been serving nonprofits and do-good organizations nationwide.
Crest is the brainchild of Founder/Creative Director Sue Moylan. On a quest to find independence from the traditional corporate setting, in 1992 Sue left her job with Lexus and began helping local businesses in the South Bay with marketing and printing services. One day, she received a call from a highly respected nonprofit development consultant asking Sue to become her outsourced Creative Director and right hand. As this relationship grew, resulting in more projects and more referrals, Sue quickly found that 90% of her work was serving nonprofits throughout the Los Angeles area.
A little soul searching made it clear that helping change-makers was where Sue found her purpose. After that discovery, the roster of nonprofit clients fighting for good causes grew, and so did the Crest Marketing team serving them.
Sue’s business community involvement includes
Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce (TACC) Executive Board Member (2006-2011)
Co- Publisher of TACC’s Torrance Magazine (2009-2015)
Leadership Torrance Co-Executive Director (2006)
This is not “just a job” for any of us in the Crest family. Our clients’ passions for their worthy causes are contagious and we are thrilled to be a part of their growing processes. Each member of our team is proud to offer their time, energy, and talents to the organizations that make our communities better. We are resourceful and creative in our work and, simply said,
We consider ourselves change-makers.
who we serve & how
We create impact by empowering heroes.
We are motivated everyday by the clients and causes we empower and our opportunity to impact quality of life and communities. We are part of a unique niche in the marketing industry that specializes in serving nonprofits, so we also know that nonprofits work differently than corporate environments. Nonprofits require different styles of communication, they must be held accountable to boards and committees, they need full command of projects that extend year after year… all within the limitations of desperately scarce resources. We are a small business, …so we understand small businesses or budgets.
We also understand communications from start to finish. We do not pass you on to other vendors complicating the process and increasing expenses or forgoing cohesiveness. We create, guide, own, and deliver in everything we do. We take pride in our integrity through every step of making your passions a reality.
