About Us

Meet the DPO Media Team!

In 1994 Don Oakley founded On Hold Communications, Newfoundland’s first on-hold marketing communications company. Since then, On-Hold Communications has evolved into DPO Media, a suite of direct marketing tools helping small business owners maximize their marketing potential. We have helped and continue to help hundreds of Canadian companies reach new heights.
