898 Marketing Acquires Youngstown Marketing, DOYO Live

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – 898 Marketing announced Thursday that it has acquired Youngstown Marketing Co. and DOYO Live.

Both Youngstown Marketing and DOYO Live were formerly owned by Dennis Schiraldi, who will join 898 Marketing in a business development and account service capacity, a news release states.

“We welcome Dennis’ senior leadership and marketing expertise, as well as YMC’s client roster, to our continually growing organization,” said Jeff Ryznar, president of 898 Marketing. “Further, DOYO Live was an attractive component of this acquisition that we fully intend to bring back and continue to build.”

DOYO Live annually held in-person conferences in the Mahoning Valley, bringing digital marketing professionals together for networking and professional development.

“I am excited about this opportunity to join 898 Marketing and have a full team of talent to work with,” Schiraldi said. “Jeff has impressively built a powerhouse of an agency, and I’m looking forward to contributing. I’m fortunate to have the backing of the fully built 898 Marketing machine to deliver world-class marketing services to our clients. The sky is the limit. This is something special.”

898 Marketing, 5721 Shields Road, Suite A, Canfield, was named among Crain’s Cleveland Business’ Best Employers in Ohio earlier this year.
