Global PR agency specializing in franchise and business-to-business expands to new office space in downtown Maryville, Tennessee to accommodate accelerated growth
MARYVILLE, Tenn. – Oct. 20, 2016 – Ripley PR, a global public relations agency specializing in franchise and business-to-business (B2B), has moved into a new office. Located in downtown Maryville, the building is triple the company’s previous office space to accommodate the continued, accelerated growth of the agency.
“The agency’s success in attracting and developing nationally recognized brands has allowed us to expand into our third space in just three years,” said Heather Ripley, founder and CEO of Ripley PR. “The vision for Ripley PR, from the very beginning, has been to offer our clients highly-qualified, senior branding and PR experts. Our ability to deliver on our promises and provide quantifiable and noticeable results to our clients is a tribute to the hard work and dedication of the skilled team we have built.”
The building, located on Ellis Avenue, was renovated with the help of two East Tennessee businesses. Studio Four Design, a leading architecture firm located in Knoxville, worked to develop the initial design, while Maryville-based commercial construction company Leon Williams Contractors worked to build out the space.
“Both Leon Williams Contractors and Studio Four Design made the renovation process a lot easier for me so that I can focus on my business,” said Ripley. “Mike Keller and the team at Studio Four understood exactly what my vision was for the agency and was able to incorporate that into every detail. As for the build out, Jimmy Hawkins and his team at Leon Williams made sure that I was able to run my business instead of having to worry about every little detail that came up during the renovation. They really made the process as easy as possible for me.”
The new facility incorporates interactive training areas, brainstorming spots and multiple conference rooms to accommodate creativity and the expansion needs of the agency. The new space combines high design with functionality, and a nod to mid-century modern through furnishings and the use of color throughout.
