The C-360 agency, an integrated communications agency specializing in public relations, marketing, social media and digital strategy and advertising, has received the Veteran-Owned Small Business Enterprise (VSBE) certification from the state of Maryland, Department of Veterans Affairs.
The VSBE certification enables the veteran-owned marketing communications firm to help state contractors meet set-aside goals for state projects that require minority and veteran participation.
C-360 is owned by Michael DeMos, a U.S. Army veteran who served for five years, being promoted to the rank of captain. He graduated from the U.S. Army Chemical and Airborne Schools, where he focused on nuclear, biological and chemical warfare and executed a variety of specialized leadership and staff assignments.
After the Army, DeMos worked in executive sales and management positions for Fortune 100 organizations and later launched a print, mail manufacturing and logistics startup and profitably built the company to more than $20 million in sales and more than 200 employees.
DeMos branched out in 2012 to start Victory-360, LLC, a direct marketing and consulting firm, and in 2019 acquired Clapp Communications and re-branded as the C360 Agency in 2021,
“C-360 understands the needs of state and federal projects and takes pride in developing communication programs, as well as public education and outreach programs, with compelling content to ensure measurable results,” DeMos said. “As a Maryland certified VSBE communications agency, we have a proven track record working successfully with organizations to meet their goals.”
The firm’s services include internal and external planning and outreach; conferences, meetings and tradeshows; market research; multi-media communications; and collateral development.
Maryland’s VSBE Program provides contracting opportunities on state-funded procurements for qualified veteran-owned small businesses. Designated agencies and departments are directed to spend at least 1% of the dollar value of their procurement contracts with certified VSBE firms.
Based in Baltimore and a Capitol Communicator sponsor, the experienced C-360 team offers public relations and crisis communications; media planning and buying, including traditional and digital advertising; SEO (search engine optimization); SEM (paid search and display); website design and development; creative services, including graphic design and copywriting; social media (paid and organic); event planning; photography and videography.
