Erlanger Businessman Wins Award, Donates Money to Local Charity
An Erlanger businessman, Kevin Eberly, owner of Money Mailer of Northern Kentucky, received $5,000 after winning the Money Mailer Franchisee of the Year and President's Club Awards from the company and will donate the money to Rob's Kids, a Florence nonprofit dedicated to helping children who struggle with depression or post-traumatic stress disorder.
The Franchisee of the Year award recognizes Eberly's growth and success in 2014, his commitment to strong local content, and his passion to support his fellow franchisees. Eberly's donation to Rob's Kids is in his name and will help provide funding and sponsorship to psychiatric professionals, along with resources and education to families, with the goal of providing a safe place where children who struggle with depression and post-traumatic stress disorder can find a home away from home.
“It’s a great honor to be included in the company of those who have won this award in the past,” said Eberly, “and I’m thrilled that our efforts have made it possible to earn Money Mailer’s highest achievement – the Franchisee of the Year. Since starting the business in 1998, I have worked with a single goal in mind - to be a valued advertising partner to the businesses in our community, and to do our best to help those businesses grow and succeed. My thanks go out to Money Mailer for helping all our franchise owners to pursue their dreams of building a great business, and in the process help our clients to grow and prosper. Winning this award is a great confirmation that we are doing things right.”
After a successful career in the newspaper industry with the Chicago Tribune and Cincinnati Enquirer, Eberly moved into direct mail advertising, working with ADVO, Inc. for eight years as a Key Account Executive. Drawn by the growth and effectiveness of Direct Mail, he branched out, starting his Money Mailer Franchise in the Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati area in 1998. Since then, his company has helped hundreds of small businesses effectively target their best customers and drive higher sales volumes, while growing their business’ sales and profits.
Eberly’s franchise has continued to grow over the last 16 years and now serves 120,000 homes in Northern KY and Cincinnati each month. Eberly lives with his wife Joan and daughter Abby in Erlanger, Kentucky.
