Mary Elizabeth Davis, a highly regarded leader in creative communications and brand strategy, has been named a partner at MP&F Strategic Communications.

“Mary Elizabeth’s energy and enthusiastic leadership have made a mark on the entire company. She has opened doors for new business opportunities, and she is a tremendous asset to our firm,” said Alice Chapman, MP&F’s managing partner. “My partners and I are excited to have her join our ownership group.”

“To say that I’m honored to take an ownership role in one of the most respected agencies in the Southeast is an understatement,” Davis said. “I am excited to begin this next chapter in my career and to work alongside an incredible group of partners and our talented staff – who I consider to be the best in the communications industry.”

Davis previously spent 10 years working at Southern Living in Birmingham, Ala., where she last served as managing editor. At Southern Living, she was responsible for directing brand operations and overseeing the production of editorial content.
