Meet Your Local Representative!

Lori Davidson
Vice-President

After spending 30+ years gaining sales and marketing experience in a variety of positions (advertising sales included), I stepped out of corporate America. For the past ten years I've helped others grow their businesses as a consultant in the areas of marketing, outreach and best practices. I've also co-launched a successful start-up in the pet industry, creating and offering our own unique sympathy gifts for pet loss. The launch of PetPerennials.com has provided me further insight into the importance of advertising from the "owner's perspective" and the necessity of reaching beyond today's gold standard of email and social media marketing campaigns. Reaching consumers one-on-one via direct mail campaigns has proven to be key in the growth of Pet Perennials.

When the opportunity presented itself to work alongside Mike Molli and place the spotlight on Pittsburgh and Erie's finest companies, I didn't hesitate to embrace the possibilities. I bring to City Publications and our clients a wide range of experience and insight having worked in diverse industries including pharmaceuticals, advertising, industrial safety, salvage management, manufacturing, education, senior care and elder law. Companies large and small have entrusted me to grow their brands at both local and national levels.

I was born and raised in a small NW PA community. Following graduation and a short teaching career in PA I spent twenty years in the Washington, DC area. I've also lived and worked in Philadelphia and have traveled extensively throughout our beautiful country both for business and leisure. Choosing to return to NW PA to raise my two daughters was one of the best decisions I could have made. The support of friends and family and the values of hardworking Pennsylvanians helped instill a valuable core of work ethics and grounded outlook on life they've carried with them into adulthood. I look forward to giving back to the Erie/Pittsburgh communities as we assist you in educating your focused audience about the valuable services and products you offer.

We are looking forward to getting to know you and earning your trust. We believe in the importance of understanding your individual needs as they relate to your current situation and plans for growth. And we hope to become more than an advertising venue, growing relationships that will make us a long-term partner you can count on as an integral part of your team.
