Seasoned Bi-Coastal PR Industry Veteran to Guide Strategy, Sustain Robust Growth Across Five Offices Nationally

NEWBURYPORT, MA – Matter Communications, the third largest PR agency in Boston and one of the fastest growing nationally, today announced the elevation of industry leader Mandy Mladenoff to President.

Matter Founder and CEO Scott Signore cited Mladenoff’s steady leadership skills and keen ability to scale the growth of the company’s technology and consumer business as key drivers for the promotion.

“This is fantastic news for Matter. I’m fortunate to have the pleasure of working so closely with such an insightful business leader and professional communicator,” Signore said. “Mandy is unquestionably the right person to help guide the agency nationally as we prepare for a robust 2017 and beyond.”

Signore will remain at the helm of the company as CEO, driving the strategic push into new markets and expanding service offerings across all lines of business.

For the past five years Mladenoff served as Matter’s general manager, during which time the agency’s revenues grew by 60 percent and the company’s footprint grew from two to five offices nationally.

Prior to joining Matter, Mladenoff spent eleven years working in San Francisco, where she guided the strategy of dozens of Silicon Valley technology companies as managing director of Shift Communications, acquired earlier this year by National Public Relations in Canada.

“Matter has always focused on offering brands something beyond the ‘status quo’,” Mladenoff said. “It’s an exciting time for the company across all offices and business lines — PR, social media, search marketing and our incredible creative services offerings – and I’m honored to help guide the agency and our clients to the next level.”
