How it all began
Our story began in 1997 with little more than an idea and a will to succeed. Jack (pictured above) had just sold his franchise sign company and was looking for a new opportunity - something that was unique and added value.
You see, Jack's will to succeed had very little to do with money and everything to do with family. Jack endured a tumultuous childhood with memories worthy of a Lifetime movie.
And while those memories bring much sadness, they also planted a seed - a seed of hope for the future, and a strong will to never allow such brokenness into his own family.
Now married to his love for 40 years, Jack has 2 grown children.
Cristina, (also pictured above), joined "Dad" over 5 years ago with a mission: to become the On Hold Messaging Dream Team for our clients and to provide the best product and personal service at a fair and competitive price.
We are passionate about helping your business to grow through custom on-hold messaging.
With humble beginnings in Houston, Texas, we now proudly serve thousands of locations across the United States & around the world.
We build relationships that matter. And a track record to prove it.
We have the honor of continuing to serve our very first client (20+ years ago!) along with countless others who have allowed us to serve them for over 10 years.
The reason for our success?
At On Hold Marketing Works, you are not a number - you are person to get to know with a story that matters!
And that's how we do business every day.
