Pivots to media and advertising; Announces new hires, staff promotions
Charleston, SC— Wesley Donehue, founder and CEO of Push Digital, announces the launch of Laurens Group—a strategic communications firm that offers clients integrated public relations and reputation management services. Laurens Group will deliver a full range of services to meet the unique needs of brands, organizations and companies who are confronted with our current hostile political environment.
“In today’s political environment, organizations with traditional values and hardworking small businesses owners often find themselves fighting to balance adversarial consumer relationships,” said founder of Push Digital and Laurens Group Wesley Donehue. “For our country to flourish, we must stand up against these attacks and fight for our free markets in order to protect American prosperity and support a thriving middle class. I founded Laurens Group to help these companies fight back.”
Laurens Group fights to uphold foundational American values and sustain the country’s great, inclusive legacy. They advise, protect and advocate for clients who are vulnerable to attacks from those aggressively pushing unfair, narrow-minded, anti-business agendas. With the launch of this specialized agency, Push Digital is pivoting to focus on what they’re best known for: delivering award-winning creative and launching innovative media and advertising campaigns for their political, advocacy and brand clients.
To accompany this transition and company launch, Laurens Group and Push Digital are excited to announce several employee promotions and new hires.
“At Push Digital, we have always put a strong focus on fostering talent from within,” said Donehue. “I am proud to announce several in-house staff promotions, as well as Christiana Purves, Tim Kelly, and Marisa Brand as first hires of Laurens Group.”
- Christiana Purves, formerly of the RNC, has been hired as a Vice President with Laurens Group.
- Tim Kelly will serve as an Account Manager for Laurens Group.
- Marisa Brand is transitioning from Push Digital to a new role as Director of Laurens Group.
- Justin Bennett has been promoted to Director of Finance at Push Digital.
- Liana Sarapas has been promoted to Director of Operations at Push Digital.
- Jared Smith has been promoted to Senior Strategist with Push Digital.
- Amanda Thiel has been promoted to Director of Media Buying with Push Digital.
Push Digital and Laurens Group are under contract to purchase a historic building in downtown Charleston, South Carolina. Located just south of Calhoun Street on East Bay Street, this 203-year-old red-roofed office will serve as the companies’ headquarters and will be undergoing renovations in the beginning of 2021 with plans for a late spring grand opening.
Additional information on Laurens Group’s partners and its range of services will be forthcoming.
