The market for public relations must be better than I thought. I recently posted about MaÃ±ana Marketing moving into Houston. Now I find another article about more PR agencies coming here. I hope this means more jobs, better projects.
Houston gets double-dose of good PR
— reported by the Houston Business Journal
Spurred by the much-ballyhooed rebound of the energy industry, a pair of high-powered advertising and public relations agencies are poised to enter the Houston market.
In the case of New York-based Burson-Marstellar, the firm’s decision to open up shop in Houston actually marks a re-entry into a city that was abandoned by the PR firm in the mid-1980s following the oil bust. Meanwhile, Dallas-based advertising heavyweight The Richards Group is looking to establish an initial foothold here through a possible merger with Houston’s Rives Carlberg LP.
