Stratacomm, an independently-owned communications agency, announced an internal restructuring and series of new hires that strengthen its integrated communications offerings. The agency’s evolution supports recent client growth, augmenting Stratacomm’s traditional strength in public relations, marketing, digital outreach and issues advocacy with a deeper bench covering the full spectrum of creative services and paid advertising.

“Stratacomm is committed to evaluating and adding new capabilities and talent in this dynamic communications environment,” said Bill Buff, managing partner, Stratacomm LLC. “This evolution allows us to better deliver the range of services that today’s brands, causes and advocates require from their communications partners, for both short-term campaigns as well as multiyear efforts.”

Stratacomm announced the following new hires and personnel promotions:

  • Kristin Calandro Tyll is promoted to managing director in Detroit. Bringing 16 years of experience working with Stratacomm clients, Tyll, a Stratacomm partner and senior vice president, now also oversees the day-to-day operations of the agency’s Michigan office.

In addition to servicing clients, Hegarty is focused on enhancing visibility for Stratacomm’s full-service integrated marketing offerings, including the agency’s newly expanded paid marketing capabilities.
  • Eddie Prentiss joins Stratacomm as executive creative director. Much of Prentiss’ career focused on engaging millennials as he created campaigns and led creative teams for major brands including Target, K2, Pepsi and Jim Beam. Prentiss, a former captain in the U.S. Army Reserves, will lead Stratacomm’s growing creative studio overseeing all content and creative strategies, including design, branding, copywriting and web development.
