Reed Public Relations, a Nashville-based public relations and marketing agency, is moving to the vibrant and fast-growing Wedgewood-Houston neighborhood in early 2020. The new office space is located at 517 Hagan Street within a development recently completed by Carter Group, LLC.
“Our office space needs have evolved as our team and services have grown,” said Lauren Reed, president and founder of REED. “We’ve dreamed of a larger space that offers more functionality for our employees and better reflects the agency we have become and the work we are doing.”
The new space, which is currently under construction, will feature multiple offices in addition to shared workspaces and collaborative areas, a state-of-the-art kitchen and entertainment area leading to an outdoor patio, a podcasting studio and a Zoom Room, allowing the team to interact seamlessly with clients and partners around the globe.
“Hagan Partnership is very excited to add another quality business in the evolving WeHo neighborhood,” said T. McGriff Irby, managing partner of Carter Group, LLC. “REED is a great fit for our new building.”
Additionally, REED has recently made two new hires. Brooke Semke has joined the team as an account coordinator. Semke is a graduate of the University of Missouri in Columbia with a degree in convergence journalism. Her experience includes digital, social media and graphic design roles with St. Louis Magazine and Kendra Scott.
REED has also added Allison Maloney as marketing and office coordinator. Maloney has a bachelor of science in journalism and was a reporter with Gannett and assistant managing editor at Home Page Media Group before settling into a focus on marketing and public relations. She most recently served as a marketing and PR coordinator at Gaylord Opryland Resort.
Rachel Davis has been promoted from senior account manager to account supervisor. She has been an integral part of the team and growing account relationships since joining REED as an account manager in 2017. Davis also helps oversee the agency’s Be The Good program, which provides scholarships for individuals to do volunteer work around the world.
Macey Cleary has been promoted to senior account manager, where she runs point on multiple accounts and serves as a mentor to REED account managers and coordinators. Cleary first joined REED in 2016 as an account coordinator.
Along with the office move and new personnel, REED has launched a new website featuring its recent brand refresh.
