Berg Muirhead and Associates has carved out its niche providing public relations and marketing services to a who's who of Detroit’s organizations and projects. That has only grown over the last year.
Among its current portfolio of clients include the Downtown Detroit Partnership
, Education Achievement Authority of Michigan
, Strategic Staffing Solutions
, The Somerset Collection
and the Grand Hotel
. Its new customers include Detroit Future City
and the Public Lighting Authority of Detroit
"We have a broad range of clients but our sweet spot is in city projects that move the city forward," says Peter Van Dyke, partner at Berg Muirhead and Associates
The 15-year-old firm has added to its staff to help handle this increased workload. It has hired a new account executive and added an independent contractor. The company now has a staff of seven employees, one independent contractor and the occasional intern.
Van Dyke expects his growing staff to help the firm’s current roster of clients adapt to Detroit’s changing landscape. That includes helping them smoothly transition their relationships to city's new mayoral administration, members of city council and the city's emergency manager.
"Our goal is to continue to keep these accounts moving forward," Van Dyke says.
