Griffin & Associates and HK Advertising out of Santa Fe have joined forces to form Sunny505, a public relations and marketing agency. 

Joanie Griffin has been a long-time member of CREW New Mexico and her organization was instrumental in our logo re-design as well as all of our media and advertising. Joanie will continue in her role as CEO under the new agency.

The partnership was formed to be more competitive in bidding projects often awarded to out of state agencies.  The merger has already proven to be a success as six of the last seven projects bid by the newly formed company were awarded to Sunny505. 

The City of Albuquerque is encouraging local businesses to work with each other to boost Albuquerque and New Mexico’s economy.  This merger has enabled both companies to edge out the out-of-state competition.

Joanie is an outstanding example of both leadership in our community and the impact CREW members have in New Mexico.  Sunny505 is, and will continue to be, a positive impact for our state and we are proud to call Joanie Griffin one of our own.  Sunny505 will be a Platinum In-Kind Sponsor for CREW New Mexico in 2019.
