Many of the clients we work with regularly today have been with us since we opened our doors.
Why? Because we take the time to understand our clients’ stories and tell them using whichever medium is best suited to the task: print, video, web, or something else entirely. We’re proud to say that over the past eight years, we’ve learned a thing or two about utilities, pharmaceuticals, economic development, real estate, alternative energy, family dentistry, and a lot more.
That's the long of it. The short of it is this: we do a lot of different things for a lot of kinds of clients.

A consummate tradesman of web development, design, writing and content strategy, Erich has shown immense talent in sculpting online communications since earning his bachelor’s in English from Grand Valley State University in 2009.
Seasoned by his travels abroad and an apostolic faith, Erich is an intentional man. Prior to joining Boileau Communications in 2012, Erich spent two years living in Rabat, Morocco, where he consulted with CultureLink International and as a freelance web developer and designer.

There’s a lot involved in taking a concept from the page to the screen. Luckily we’ve got a guy who knows how to stitch all of those things together to bring that idea to life.
Graduating from Grand Valley State University 2008 with a bachelor’s in Film and Video Production, Vince honed his skills with Grooters Productions before joining Boileau Communications in early 2012, where he lends his expertise in every aspect of video production—from pre-production through post. He sweats every detail, which makes him the perfect guy to put behind the camera when everything’s got to look immaculate.
Think of him this way: If a picture’s worth a thousand words, then at 24 fps, Vince is worth at least 1,440,000 words per minute. Don’t even try to keep up on your QWERTY.

Screened by the Zooey Deschanel-esque bangs are the eyes and the mind of a designer. Kelly sees art in the everyday and uses her skills and talent to turn the everyday into art.
Her bachelor’s in fine arts and minor in advertising and public relations from GVSU pack a one-two punch in creative business communications. With real world experience in manufacturing and in creative services for an art gallery, Kelly is with it and gets it, stylish, smart and fun, and offers a healthy dose of millennial to round out our team.
Before joining Boileau, Maddie created understanding by gathering content and managing an award-winning agronomy blog for an agribusiness client as well as supported a corn seed brand at a Chicago-based communications firm. We were impressed by her persistence and the stick-to-it-iveness needed to continually communicate features about planting, pests, weeds, disease and yields to keep the blog running smooth as silk for two years. We are happy to fold her into our team with that level of interest to learn about new topics and clients, and appreciate the social media skills she brings to business communications.
Boileau recognizes talent when we see it. When Maddie returned to Michigan, we swept her up to assist with growing our agribusiness client support. Maddie’s bachelor’s degree is in environmental studies and agriscience with a concentration in communications from the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources at Michigan State University. Maddie bleeds green and white as true Spartans do and enjoys spending time outdoors.
