KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – Ackermann PR has been selected to be part of The Croft Society, a newly-formed coalition of regional public relations firms across the country, announced Cathy Ackermann, founder and CEO of Ackermann PR. The membership is by invitation only, and the organization is currently made up of 20 public relations firms recognized as mid-sized regional agencies who are leaders in their respective markets.
In addition to Ackermann PR, agencies included in The Croft Society include Greentarget in Chicago, IL; Pierpoint Communications, Inc. in Houston, TX; Salter>Mitchell in Tallahassee, FL; Standing Partnership in St. Louis, MO; and Graham & Associates in San Francisco, CA. Other public relations firms represented in the Society hail from cities including New York, Tampa, Denver, Cincinnati, Seattle, and Portland. The Society meets twice a year to discuss topics pertaining to the business side of running a professional services firm and to share best practices.
According to Ackermann, The Croft Society was formed within the past year and grew out of an annual retreat, known as the Sedona Roundtable, for select public relations firms throughout the United States, which was hosted by the late Al Croft, a long time and well respected adviser to national public relations firms. Ackermann was selected by Croft as a founding member of the Sedona Roundtable more than 20 years ago.
“In addition to the opportunity to participate in ongoing collaborative business development ventures with these elite public relations firms, we benefit from years of collective experience in working closely with other firms which are recognized market leaders,” said Ackermann.
Ackermann PR is a full-service marketing and communications firm and is ranked as one of the top 100 PR firms in the country by industry associations and publications. Clients include ORNL Federal Credit Union, Legacy Parks Foundation, Feed Your Faith, KaTom, Clayton Homes, TechLaw Group, Pilot Flying J, Power Systems, Titanic Museum Attraction, Wilderness at the Smokies and Crown Financial Ministries, among others.
