About Sundin Associates

For over 40 years Sundin Associates has been dedicated to providing a commonsense approach to marketing to clients. In that time we’ve adapted, applying our “figure-it-out” mentality to an expanding suite of services, learning what works and what doesn’t.

Where our journey began

With the opening of Steve the Bike Guy in 2015, we began to apply our “can do” spirit to a new industry. We have learned with first-hand experience the challenges faced by small businesses and bike shops, as well as the opportunities for branding and community building.

Since those first projects, we’ve had the opportunity to support a variety of athletic endeavors.

We look forward to learning how we can help get your project moving in the right direction.
