Lambert, Edwards & Associates moved its Metro Detroit office to downtown Detroit two years ago, and now the public relations firm is starting to reap the benefits of the move.
The Grand Rapids-headquartered company has landed six new clients since making the move. Those new customers are mainly in the healthcare, financial, and automotive sectors. Among the new clients is Great Expressions Dental Centers
, an Oakland County-based firm that is expanding south of 8 Mile Road. It wanted a PR firm with a presence in Detroit to help it grow in the Motor City.
"Being there is half of it," says Jeff Lambert, president and managing partner of Lambert, Edwards & Associates
. "It's also what you are doing there."
Lambert, Edwards & Associates is growing in Detroit. The company has hired five people over the last year and currently is looking to fill two more postitions. The firm now employs 50 people, including 15 in its downtown Detroit office.
"We have hired four people in Detroit in the last 90 days," Lambert says.
