Media Place Partners Media Experts

Before Media Place Partners came together as a media services firm in 2005, our team members were recognized as some of West Michigan’s advertising community’s most respected and savvy media planning and buying experts. Today, with our media team's collective experience, growing client bases, and fire in our bellies, Media Place Partners is West Michigan’s only media services firm. When you work with the Media Place Partners team, here's what you can expect from our media planning and buying experts:

  • Inventive media strategy
  • Creative media planning, evaluation, and ad placement
  • Transparent business practices
  • Top-notch communication
  • Responsive account service
  • Insightful market knowledge
  • Skillful and effective negotiation

Best of all, though, is we can promise you that our experts will leverage and facilitate competition in the media marketplace. Here's a less fancy way of saying that: Media Place Partners knows how the media biz works inside and out, which means we'll get you the most bang for your advertising buck.


In Your Backyard or Across the Country

Media Place Partners is based in Grand Rapids, Michigan, but don't think we're only familiar with the West Michigan marketplace. Sure, we know our way around our home state like nobody's business. But we also handle and leverage millions of media dollars in more than 20 markets across the United States and in Canada. We'll work with you directly or in partnership with creative agencies.

Dave Kettler

Chief Operating Officer

It doesn't matter how long he's been in the media business - and it's been awhile now - Dave Kettler still gets a thrill when he sees a client's ad make an appearance out in the real world.

Before Dave created Media Place Partners, he worked in cable, broadcasting, radio, and advertising. But 10 years ago, Dave noticed a hole in the Grand Rapids media planning and buying marketplace, and he knew he had to open up shop. Dave created Media Place Partners in 2005, which became West Michigan's first media services firm.

When Dave isn't planning and buying media or taking care of his clients, Dave hangs out with his wife and family, cheers his kids on in all manner of sports and activities, gives back to the community, and enjoys all things German.
