Amy Atkinson Communications adds familiar face as partner

Well, that officially makes it a family business.

Brannan Atkinson has joined Amy Atkinson Communications, the year-old firm founded by his wife, as a partner and will concentrate on online marketing, content marketing, analytics and copywriting. From 1999 to 2011, Brannan Atkinson was at Atkinson Public Relations, which had been founded by his mother. He ran that firm from 2009 until it dissolved in 2011 and has since been chief marketing officer at Raven Internet Marketing Tools and consulted with LogoGarden.

“Separately, we’ve had many unique work experiences but we’ve both spent significant time with traditional media relations as well as digital marketing,” said Amy Atkinson, who struck out on her own after leaving Gaylord Entertainment following that company’s asset sale to Marriott International. “Together, our combined experiences and talents will help us offer clients the best integrated marketing to meet their business goals. Plus, it’s just nice to work with someone you respect and trust more than anyone else you know.”
