Face of Public Relations
Meet Jennifer abshire – What began 15 years ago around a kitchen table and one client has since blossomed into a distinguished, award-winning public relations firm. With the tagline, “We take the puzzle out of PR,” the Abshire PR brand is readily recognized throughout the region across a plethora of industries including tourism, legal, financial, retail, economic development, real estate, education, government — and the list goes on.
The face behind the brand is none other than one of South’s former “Stars of the South,” Jennifer Abshire. The savvy CEO began her career in the nonprofit world where she was responsible for raising $3 million a year at the age of 25 and later served as executive director of Savannah’s Olympic Committee, which some may remember was an extraordinary moment for our little-big town. Fast-forward a few years and Jennifer had a rolodex money couldn’t buy and loads of experience working with major players across the state, solving problems and making key
When the Olympics were done, Jennifer decided to roll the dice and gamble on herself. Today, she’s grown her team to five dynamic professionals including company president, Susan Hancock, known for her undying enthusiasm and leadership expertise, Nancy Fullbright, the copy queen and VP of media relations, and Kara Ford, a former APR intern who now operates as VP of accounts. Morgan Sawicki, a recent UGA grad and technology guru, just joined the team as an account executive.
Each recruited for different strengths, APR mobilized a firm worthy of the hype. Speaking of mobilize, you won’t find Abshire PR sitting still for long. This PR team prides itself on its ability to work virtually and on the go. Whether that includes getting the work done in a board room or from the car, they are as efficient as breathing. There are two things you can always count on from this crew: quick response and quality of work.
“It’s truly a fast-paced world in which we operate and I think our company has stood the test of time because we live for that energy our profession and clients create for us. We are blessed beyond measure to have worked with so many amazing clients and feel so grateful to get the chance to live, work and play in Savannah. We know the best is yet to come for our region and it’s going to be incredible,” said Abshire.
Incredible is right. For this reason and many others, South is proud to name APR as “The Face of PR.”
