Spire Communications Expands with New Account Director

Seasoned PR Pro Jane Bryant to Manage Government Accounts

Fredericksburg, Va., June 9, 2008 – Spire Communications, a strategic integrated marketing, public relations and advertising firm, today announced that it has added Jane Bryant to the firm as account director. In this role, Bryant will leverage her 20 years of experience in public relations, marketing and journalism to develop high-level communications strategy and marketing campaigns to help organizations meet their business goals.

Prior to joining Spire Communications, Bryant directed public relations for business-to-government and business-to-business technology clients where she secured high-profile executive speaker placements, awards and feature articles. Formerly a director of marketing with a NASDAQ Financial 100 firm, Bryant led the marketing and public relations initiatives for the firm’s expansion into 20 additional geographic markets.

“Jane’s proactive approach to uncovering top-tier media opportunities will be an immediate asset for our clients,” said Ivy Eckerman, Spire’s president. “Her tenacity and high energy level, coupled with her creative thinking to find new and better ways to increase a company’s visibility and message, are refreshing. We know that our clients will benefit from her experience and leadership.”

In addition to her marketing and public relations experience, Bryant served as a technology journalist with leading trade publications. Her extensive role with trade dailies, weeklies and monthly publications gives her an insider’s view on media requirements and effective public relations strategies.

“It is such a pleasure to be working with a forward-thinking agency that can offer a total solution to its clients,” said Bryant. “By being able to create an entire PR and marketing package, we can truly increase a company’s image and awareness. I am looking forward to this new opportunity.”

Bryant received a Bachelor of Science degree in journalism from the University of Kansas, Lawrence.
