Some may not think that a century-old company could still be on the cutting edge of its industry. They don’t know Berry.

The Berry Company started over 100 years ago as a yellow page directory company, and today has expanded to include print and digital advertising with a sole focus on connecting local buyers and sellers. Combining a high-caliber digital advertising consultant team and marketing performance advisors, Berry helps small to medium-sized businesses grow in Hawaii.

That’s because, says John Lamert, Regional Director for Hawaii, they are in the business of building connections. “First and foremost we are a sales and marketing organization. Our number one priority is making sure that we build long lasting relationships with our customers through a great experience and solid return on investment,” he says. “At one point all you needed was an ad in the yellow pages, but in today’s world you have to do a lot more than that. And that’s where Berry can help. We provide the tools necessary to connect buyers and sellers.”

Fostering growth for kama‘aina businesses starts by focusing on finding and keeping the best team members to provide top service to Hawai‘i. The Berry Company provides competitive benefits with additional floating holidays and a matching 401k plan. “We work hard and have high expectations but we treat each other with respect and make it a fun place to work,” Lambert says. “We look for long-term employees who are committed to learning and adapting and who continually challenge themselves to perform better tomorrow than today. If you do that, we’ll have a long future together.”

In addition to cutting edge digital marketing and advertising products, The Berry Company is leading the way in several green programs. There has been great success locally with the Think Yellow, Go Green initiative, which keeps old directories out of landfills by recycling them. The company has diverted 600 tons of outdated directories from entering our landfills over the past six years. Additionally The Berry Company is committed to our island communities and stays actively involved in local outreach and volunteer opportunities.
