Ketner Group Communications opens office in Nashville

About Ketner Group Communications

Our clients are changing the way that people work, shop, live and play – and they trust Ketner Group to tell their stories. We represent innovators that are reshaping the world we live in, including high-growth companies in retail, e-commerce, grocery and CPG, advertising and marketing, social media and consumer technology.

While we call Austin home, Ketner Group has offices in New York City and Nashville, and we work with clients throughout the U.S., Canada and the U.K.

Core capabilities include media and analyst relations, content development, social media strategy and implementation, and digital content marketing. Our team is fearless, creative and proud to call ourselves a seamless extension of our clients’ marketing teams.

“When I founded Ketner Group Communications 30 years ago, I set out to create an agency where we surpass client expectations, treat media like valued partners, and put great importance on work/life balance for our team. These core values have held true as we’ve grown into a thriving agency that represents companies throughout the U.S., Canada and Europe.

Our clients are change agents and disruptors, and we are fiercely committed to their success. Whether it’s growth, market recognition or acquisition, we focus on helping our clients realize their goals. We build creative PR and communications programs that are tailored to every client, and we pride ourselves on driving results that prove the value of PR. In return, many of our clients consider us extended members of their marketing team and refer us to their friends and partners — the highest compliment of all.

We work hard, but we know that work isn’t all there is to life. We value every team member, respect everyone’s opinion and work like crazy to make this the best PR agency environment around — one of the reasons we were named a finalist in “Company Culture” for the 2018 Greater Austin Business Awards. Our culture has always been fun, casual and not a lot of red tape. We’re a place where team members can grow professionally, have the satisfaction of doing great work, and find a long-term home.

Welcome to Ketner Group. We’re a bit different by design, and we intend to keep it that way.”
