Phil and Shawn Kelly launched CEM around the same time Kevin Lehmann launched ProSTEP. For many years both companies worked side by side in supporting the Network marketing community with high quality lead generation.
In 2005, when ProSTEP closed its doors, Phil and Cutting Edge Media climbed to the top as the World’s #1 Lead Generation Company. They expanded their operation to Salt Lake City (The World Capital of MLM Companies).
Over the last few years, CEM has expanded its publishing empire to include some of the most recognized names in Home Based Business Magazines:
Under Phil’s leadership this small two man operation became a multi-million dollar success story.
Phil’s original vision was to make CEM the leading provider of marketing, advertising, and lead generation solutions for the home business industry.
there is no doubt in my mind, his vision will live on!!!
Phil R.I.P… We will miss you!
Our hearts go out to Phil’s family and his extended family at Cutting Edge media.
