A new statewide alliance has been formed by communications experts from Memphis to Knoxville to provide blanket geographic coverage for products and issues in Tennessee.

Coordinated by Nashville-based McNeely Pigott & Fox Public Relations, the state’s largest PR firm, charter members of the Tennessee Public Relations Alliance are the Carter Malone Group of Memphis and Moxley Carmichael Public Relations of Knoxville.

“This is a strategic alliance that touches the major population areas of the state and includes talented and experienced principals who have spent their careers in journalism, public service and communications,” said MP&F senior partner Mark McNeely. “We all are friends and have worked on many projects together through the years. This will allow us to leverage local strengths on behalf of clients with statewide or broader needs.”

Each of the independently owned agencies will continue to maintain existing clients and pursue clients needing help from a single agency, but the alliance will offer a unique opportunity to businesses and organizations that need the resources of a cohesive, statewide communications team with strengths in all local markets.

The Carter Malone Group LLC is a full-service public relations, marketing and advertising firm in Memphis. CMG provides creative, dynamic and credible integrated marketing communication strategies. CMG is a minority-owned firm with a diverse client list.

Moxley Carmichael is a full-service public relations company based in Knoxville. The firm’s client list includes leading companies and organizations in East Tennessee and beyond.
