Introducing Thema Reed: Our Newest Marketing Manager

team-themaThe Saffire Team is so excited to welcome our newest team member Thema Reed to the fold! Thema (pronounced Tay-mah—she says like “Taylor” but with “ma” at the end!) is dedicated to connecting with the Saffire family and sharing all the fun and helpful things Saffire has to offer.

Thema is the third person to join the Saffire team from Albuquerque, New Mexico (shout out to Jessica C. and Austin!).  She is taking on the role of Marketing Manager and joins Saffire with 3 years of communications and digital marketing experience working on social media, content marketing, PR and communication strategy for nonprofits. Before that, she was a Journalism major at Howard University, where she interned in many D.C. newsrooms, including CNN, C-SPAN and WUSA. Thema will be working her writing and editing magic all over Saffire’s marketing efforts!

When she’s not writing all the things, Thema enjoys exploring Austin with her husband and two big fur babies, doing yoga outside and eating lots of tacos.

To learn more about Saffire, Thema or just to say “hey,” feel free to email Thema directly at or connect with her on Linkedin at We hope you can meet her in person at a conference or future Saffire Summit!

Welcome, Thema!


7Saddle on up! The Red Bluff Round-Up has joined the Saffire family and we couldn’t be any more excited! We look forward to working with such an energetic event.

The Round-Up includes a week of events throughout the community including a bowling tournament, foot race, pancake breakfast, street dance, antique shows, Chamber mixer, golf tournament, chili cook-off, parade, dances and much more. The event is a major income booster to the community filling hotels, restaurants and gasoline stations! Being a major PRCA spring rodeo, its timing is ideal for securing top stock contractors as well and world class contestants hungry for season points.

Stay tuned for a new website that’ll surely be “Best In Show”!


Untitled design (3)We are ecstatic to have the Eastern States Exposition join the Saffire family!

Eastern States Exposition: The home of The Big E has presented the finest livestock, the most innovative commercial, industrial and artistic developments, and the highest caliber of varied entertainment to the people of the Northeastern United States for more than eight decades. More than one million people now attend the 17-day Big E, an annual autumn extravaganza of entertainment, exhibits and agriculture – the culmination of a visionary idea first expressed by Joshua L. Brooks at the beginning of the 20th century.

We can’t wait to unveil this great web design! Stay tuned!!



The Alabama Cattlemen’s Association has joined the Saffire family! We could not be any more excited to work with such a historical organization!

The start of the Alabama Cattlemen’s Association began with Luther Fuller, a farm products agent for the Tennessee Coal, Iron, and Railway Company (T.C.I.) based out of Birmingham, Alabama. In ACA’s first year, the statewide membership included only 40 members. Over the years, strong and dedicated leaders helped ACA to grow its ranks to a high point of 18,620 members in 1974. Because ACA’s strength lies in its network of county chapters and volunteer leaders, ACA is sure to continue as a voice for cattlemen in Alabama for years to come.

We will be rolling out the new ACA website and design soon, so stay tuned!!
