The Tennessee Public Relations Alliance, which was formed in 2011 and includes Knoxville’s Moxley Carmichael firm, has added Q Strategies of Chattanooga to the group.

“With this addition, the Alliance is now in each of the state’s major media markets, and we formalize the partnership we have enjoyed for years with one of the Chattanooga area’s most knowledgeable and effective strategists, Tom Griscom,” said Mark McNeely, senior partner of Nashville’s McNeely Pigott & Fox (MP&F) Public Relations of Nashville.

Along with MP&F and Moxley Carmichael, charter members of the Alliance are The Carter Malone Group of Memphis and The Hispanic Marketing Group of Nashville.

The statewide alliance was formed to provide blanket geographic coverage for products and issues in Tennessee. Since its inception, the alliance has worked with BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee on communications efforts related to the Affordable Care Act, as well as several other statewide organizations and issues, including the successful push to allow wine in grocery stores last year.

Each of the independently owned agencies maintains existing clients and pursues clients needing help from a single agency. The Alliance offers previously unavailable opportunities for businesses and organizations seeking help from a cohesive, statewide communications team with strengths in all local markets.

McNeely Pigott & Fox, an award-winning, full-service public relations firm in Nashville, is one of the largest independent public relations firms in the Southeast.

The Carter Malone Group LLC, a full-service public relations, marketing and advertising firm located in Memphis, is a minority-owned company 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, including Pilot Flying J, Covenant Health, U.S. Cellular and Summit Medical Group. It serves clients on a local, regional and national basis.

Hispanic Marketing Group was founded in 2002 and is the leading full-service bilingual and bicultural marketing and communications agency in Middle Tennessee, specializing in relating appropriate and compelling messages to U.S. consumer markets in their own culture and language. The firm is certified as a Minority Business Enterprise and has consumer, corporate, nonprofit and other clients in North America and Latin America.
