Metzger Associates has rebranded as Metzger Albee Public Relations, reflecting the role that President Doyle Albee has played in the firm’s success over the past 10 years. The firm also announced that it is relocating its headquarters to a more central Boulder location at 25th and Walnut. Said Founder and CEO John Metzger:
“Doyle started one of the PR industry’s first social media practices when he became a partner, and has since established one of the country’s most experienced digital marketing teams built upon our B2B and tech PR heritage. With our move into new offices, and re-inventing the agency model while we’re at it, the time was right not only to share ownership, but to change our name to Metzger Albee Public Relations.”
