What our customers say

Ready to Elevate Your Performance?


Company Overview

The Media Services Group is an amalgam of companies – some new, some older. One of them dates back to 1972 when Nixon was still president and Pong was the video game rage.

We provide cloud-based software to media companies. Our customers publish books, websites, magazines and newsletters. Many of them put on events, conferences and trade shows.

We are a tech driven company. In fact, our CEO and our President are the primary system architects. We spend a ridiculous amount on development and love [nearly] every moment of it. We do have a small sales and marketing team, but rely mostly on word of mouth to earn new business.

We also employ a diverse [some may say eclectic] bunch of media experts to help you get the most out of our software.

Our software is used by hundreds of companies and thousands of professionals around the world. We have offices in the U.S.A. and in the United Kingdom.

Meet [some of] the team

Jeff Shine


Once known as a tech whiz kid but now too old for that title. Thinks he's hip but we know he watches Downton Abbey.
Dan Pellegrini

Ad Systems

A tech visionary that loves to create cool new stuff. Spends his evenings reading blogs on design and user experience.
Tom Jensen

Book Systems

A one-time CIO at Penton Publishing, Tom left to create his own e-commerce company. We liked it enough to buy it.
Pamela Morales

VP of Operations
Ad Systems

Small in stature but big on organization and process. We hear she arranges her groceries by size and color in her refrigerator.
Benjamin Thomas

VP of Operations
Book Systems

An accomplished hoarder in both the physical and digital realms, Benjamin’s minor super power is being able to find the things he is looking for. Except his DVD of Sunset Boulevard, that thing has been missing for years.
Chris Wolf

Product Manager
Élan Accounting
and Royalties

Loves to read and relax on a beach so not sure why she still lives in the Midwest. After years of commanding that her family treat her like a queen, she now heads up our Accounting and Royalties offerings
Wayne Burrows

Rock Star

Actually makes a system implementation interesting and entertaining. Probably should have been an actor.
Ron Motley


Ron makes our Cloud system work. He enjoys drawing complex diagrams and uses lots of TLA's [Three letter Acronyms].
Hugh Grantley

V.P of Operations

The publishing veteran who manages our UK operation. He is a little too obsessed with Arsenal Football Club.

Andrew Scott

VP of Sales

Worth speaking to just to hear his broadcast-quality voice. With at least a couple of decades in the media business, he is often interesting as well.

Allen Marks
Product Guru
Once a BPA Auditor, but he is much nicer now. Allen really knows a lot about circulation management.

Ted Thomason

Marketing Boss

Perennial winner of our Miss Congeniality award, Ted is typically the first person you will chat with when you contact us. He is the heart and soul of our client and prospect outreach.
Raymond Phelan

Product Manager
Ad Systems

Ray has overseen dozens of implementations and lived to tell the tale. Speaks softly but carries great knowledge.

Jeff's Dog

Jeff's dog. Doesn't do much but we thought it was a cute photo.
