“We are excited to have Brendan join our rapidly growing team,” said Ash Anand, CEO and president of Lotus Group. “We are at a time in our history when telling the Lotus story is crucial, and Brendan is a master storyteller and creative talent. His knowledge of digital marketing, content strategy and public relations will inform Lotus’ ambitious 2019 goals for business growth and expanding our public presence.”
Since Lotus Group owns such a wide range of businesses, Manley will be dividing his time between a diverse slate of campaigns. One core focus will be B2B solutions and services provider Lotus Analytics, which is launching several new products this year, fueling strong momentum behind Lotus’ arsenal of professional managed solutions. The company’s new mobile task management app, Lotus Real-Time, is one of those key products, enabling businesses to manage employees and stores from a distance, yet with constant contact and communication.
Lotus Group also just opened its Mexican restaurant, Ocho Cinco Cantina, at 85 Hudson Street in Warrensburg, alongside Ashes Pub, its sister business, and promoting the new restaurant is another of Manley’s key objectives. He will also oversee marketing of Lotus-owned local businesses The Grist Mill -- an iconic Warrensburg fine-dining venue -- as well as Lotus Auto Xperts repair shop, Warrensburg NAPA Auto Parts and Small Tales early childcare.
