Mid-Atlantic-based public relations firm Pugh & Tiller PR today announced it has expanded operations to Florida, opening a second space in the Sarasota-Bradenton metropolitan area in order to capitalize on that region’s strong and growing economy.

“Florida’s business-friendly climate, combined with the fact that the state is growing three times faster than the rest of the nation, were major factors in our decision to expand here and a logical next step in our growth,” says Jessica Tiller, Partner, Pugh & Tiller PR.

Headquartered in Annapolis, Maryland, Pugh & Tiller PR specializes in working with small to mid-sized B2B companies in the commercial real estate, healthcare, insurance, employee benefits, professional services, and technology industries.

“With diverse talent from well-known colleges and universities, access to quality infrastructure, and proximity to Tampa, establishing a presence in Florida positions us  not only to better support existing clients, but also to take advantage of  opportunities to grow our portfolio throughout the state,” says Matthew Pugh, Partner, Pugh & Tiller PR.

Pugh & Tiller PR has been providing services to a variety of companies with operations and/or presence in Florida, including Benezon and DreamFinders Homes. The firm has also handled conference and trade show management in the Sunshine State for a significant number of clients.

Pugh & Tiller’s new space is located at 3620 57th Avenue Drive W, Bradenton, Florida.

This announcement comes on the heels of a series of industry awards won by the firm, including the PR News Agency Elite Top 100, Best PR Agency in The Daily Record’s 2021 Reader Rankings, Top Baltimore Firm by Expertise, and partner Jessica Tiller being named an Influential Marylander by The Daily Record, as well as being appointed to the jury panel for the global Titan Business Awards.
