As announced in last week’s issue, a veteran public relations firm next week will become the new managing market member and publisher of The Atlanta 100, flagship of The 100 Companies member network. Following the acquisition of SPR Atlanta, The 100 Companies began looking for a new PR firm manager in Atlanta. The first owner Publisher Chris Schroder approached after closing was a longtime friend in the business, Tara Murphy, founder of 360 Media, Inc.
“We were very happy when Tara told us she would be honored to take over as the managing market member of The Atlanta 100,” said Chris. “She runs an extremely successful PR firm with a great mix of clients. Similar to SPR Atlanta, 360 Media includes both hospitality clients and commercial and real estate clients. We’re confident Tara will be an outstanding partner to lead our flagship publication.”
360 Media’s first issue of The Atlanta 100 will publish on April 12. The Atlanta 100 was launched as a weekly eNewsletter, website and social media platform in October 2013 and currently has 30,000 subscribers. There are more than a half million subscribers across The 100 Companies PR publishing network, which stretches from Denali to Dubai.
