Kimball Communications (www.kimballpr.com) today announced it has added Mark Ladley to its team of public relations professionals. Ladley joins the agency as public relations manager and is responsible for managing client accounts, including strategic planning, media relations, social media advising and crisis consulting.
Prior to joining Kimball Communications, Ladley honed his PR expertise in travel and tourism, as well as political communications, at boutique agencies and in state politics.

Prior to that, Ladley was communications director for Pa. Rep. Brendan Boyle, developing messaging and public relations strategies that led to significant media placements and high-profile press conferences. He began his career in communications working for esteemed pollster and political pundit, Frank Luntz.
“As we continue to grow our agency, Mark’s experience in B2B and travel and tourism PR is a complementary and welcome addition to the work we do,” says Gary Kimball, president of Kimball Communications. “I’m looking forward to the positive results he’ll produce for our clients, both current and future.”
A resident of Lansdale, Pa. in Montgomery County, Ladley is deeply involved in his local community, serving as a member of the Lansdale Communications Commission, the Philadelphia Public Relations Association and The Penn Club. He earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in politics from The Citadel and the University of Glasgow, respectively.
Ladley is the most recent addition to the Kimball Communications team since the agency’s move to the Philadelphia region earlier this year. The agency is currently celebrating its 20th year in business.
