I Know How To Connect Small Businesses

Kris Pepper

With 20 years of foundational experience as the Public Relations Director at a YMCA, I know how to manage entire marketing and communications projects from start to finish.

Organizations keep costs down with a lean staff; I have the depth of experience in managing projects from initial idea, to final draft, to finished product—and have overseen the entire process. This has provided the hands-on knowledge and excellent business contacts to successfully complete any project.

My long career in the non-profit business segment has provided me with a keen awareness of local organizations and their missions, and it is my passion to connect them with other businesses and organizations to enhance collaboration while providing a benefit for the community!

Finish Line Marketing partners with its clients to share their story, communicate their message, and amplify their visibility through creative and engaging content writing, innovative marketing strategies, networking opportunities, and community involvement. 


Serving as a company’s marketing advocate, Finish Line is an ally that can assume time-consuming tasks such as composing web content, articles, blogs, and newsletters. We execute events, plan strategic promotional campaigns, and craft advertising messages, flyers, and informational brochures without the added cost of a graphic designer. We can also compose and manage your email blasts and social media posts.

With Finish Line managing the “behind-the-scenes” marketing and communications projects, our clients are empowered to do what they do best—run their businesses!

I’m the Editor of two sister magazines, Northwest Bergen Lifestyle and Pascack Lifestyle, which are focused in Bergen County, New Jersey. Check out the magazine link for great stories and samples of my writing skills.

I have a strong belief in the power of connecting non-profit organizations with the business community, and I enjoy volunteering my time to support local charitable organizations, and I currently serve on the Board of Directors for Hope Christian Services in Wyckoff, New Jersey.
