Kimball Communications, a boutique Philadelphia public relations agency specializing in insurance, real estate, law, trade associations and other niche industry communications, today announces it has officially rebranded as Kimball Hughes Public Relations. The rebrand follows the naming of agency Vice President Rod Hughes as a partner in 2016.
“Since Rod joined our agency five years ago, we have doubled in size, expanded the industry expertise we offer clients and, most importantly, enhanced our reputation as a results-driven public relations agency,” said Gary Kimball, agency president and founder. “This name change reflects not only our new partnership, but also the leading role Rod will play in our future—news I know will be welcomed by everyone who works with us.”
Hughes joined the agency in 2012 after five years leading the communications division of a full-service marketing agency. Kimball founded the agency in 1995 in Easton, Pa., after serving in a series of senior corporate public relations roles. In addition to Kimball and Hughes, the agency’s account managers are all former journalists.
In the first half of 2017, Kimball Hughes Public Relations added eight new clients, including two non-profit charity organizations, a museum, two national legal trade associations, a mutual insurance company, a venture capital firm and a partner and practice group leader at one of Philadelphia’s leading law firms.
The agency will maintain its existing web, email, and postal addresses as well as its social media presences and phone number.
