Boston Marketing Partners began as a vehicle to support our partnership agreement with Surkus, an emerging hyper-targeted marketing company expanding into the Boston area in 2018. BMP has grown to become the professional consulting arm for Eric Hyett and Spencer Thurlow. We share a 6-year history of working together on a variety of projects, from event management and "enrichment travel" workshops, to financial due diligence and market-entry strategies. Apart from business, Eric & Spencer are most well known for co-translating "Sonic Peace," the award-winning first book of poetry by contemporary Japanese female poet Kiriu Minashita.
