Peter Van Dyke has been named a full partner at
Berg Muirhead and Associates
and the New Center-based public relations agency announced it has expanded its staff.
Bob Berg and Georgella Muirhead opened the company in 1998 with Van Dyke coming aboard in 2006. It currently employs nine people after hiring two more account executives over the last year.
"It's exciting," Van Dyke says. "It's a great company to be a part of the leadership team."
Berg Muirhead has traditionally supplied public relations and marketing services to a number of the Motor City's biggest names, such as Faygo
and Strategic Staffing Solutions
. It recently expanded its clientele to include retail businesses, like Edible Arrangements and the Somerset Collection, while also doing projects with the state of Michigan.
The increased workload prompted not only the recent hirings but Van Dyke's promotion to partner. He joins Berg and Muirhead who are still active with the company, while Van Dyke serves as the day-to-day manager.
"We found that there was a demand to have three people as figureheads of the company," Van Dyke says.
