by | Jun 6, 2024

CLEVELAND (June 5, 2024)PRConsultants Group (PRCG), an exclusive network of senior-level public relations professionals in the U.S., is proud to announce the addition of three new members, solidifying PRCG’s position as a leader in the industry.

“As agency owners and leaders, what we hear from clients so often is that they are looking for seasoned, veteran PR and marketing pros who maintain the close, working relationships with media, influencers and stakeholders that can really deliver results within a target market,” said Tracie Broom, president of PRCG.

“It can be tough for clients to get that high level of service, experience and relationships from massive PR firms,” Broom added. “Our new members bring decades of excellence and professionalism to the table in key Midwestern markets, delivering strategic insight, innovative solutions and — because these are local, independently owned firms — exceptional value.”

The newest PRConsultants Group members include:
