Nashville PR and Marketing Firm
We’re here to help Nashville’s most promising tech companies reach their potential through strategic PR and marketing communications.
It’s not just Nashvillians who are talking about the fact that we’re a hot city. As Nashville continues to inspire and support technology innovation, we at Ketner Group are prepared to embrace the tech companies that call Nashville home and launch their story throughout the world. We’re unique in that we not only have an obsession with Nashville but we also have a 30-year legacy as one of the most trusted B2B tech PR firms in the country.
The Ketner Group Advantage
We know B2B tech. And we know Nashville.
There’s a reason why Nashville is listed in Forbes Top 20 for both job growth and business: the emerging technology scene and supportive atmosphere are ideal for building game-changing companies. Nashville is a great place for startups and small business owners, with a good deal of support in place for entrepreneurs to accelerate their visions.
The city is also attractive to both national companies looking to launch new regional headquarters, and Nashvillians who are returning to their roots after career stints in Silicon Valley or other tech hubs. With an official presence in Nashville, Ketner Group is committed to being a part of the growth and play a role in telling the compelling stories coming out of these innovative businesses.
But that's not why you should work with us.
As one of three Ketner Group Communications offices nationwide (Austin, New York City), our Nashville office fills a critical need for local B2B tech companies bursting onto the national scene. Armed with local knowledge and a deep network of contacts both here and across the country, we’re prepared to get your brand story heard by your most important audiences. We’ll help you generate brand awareness and stand out against your comeptitors to support your sales initiatives.
The Director of our Nashville office, Kirsty Goodlett (née Hughan), is a former client who has managed in-house marketing efforts, led international campaigns for large agency clients, and helped position innovative product launches as can’t miss breakthroughs. Kirsty is also a bit of a coffee snob; one of her favorite perks of the job is being able to meet Nashvillians for coffee every moment she can. If you’re here in town, she’ll want to say howdy over a good cup of Joe.
But when you work with Ketner, you don’t just work with Kirsty. You’ll have access to our nationwide agency team. Together, we have built messaging platforms and overseen PR and marketing programs that have helped guide startups to acquisition and IPO, ensured consistent positive press for publicly traded clients, and earned the accolades and trust of not only clients but reporters, analysts, event organizers, and both local and national influencers.
PR and Marketing Services
We know every company in every city has different needs and opportunities.
That’s why we offer a robust suite of traditional and digital communications services that enables us to build the program that’s right for you.
Nashville is Ready for Launch
