Merryman Communications Celebrates 10th "Merryversary"

Healthcare Agency and its Senior-Level Team Mark Long Track Record Virtually Delivering Marketing and PR Successes

REDONDO BEACH, Calif. – Oct. 14, 2020 – Merryman Communications, the award-winning healthcare marketing communications and public relations agency, is celebrating its 10th "Merryversary." The firm marks its success as an early adopter of the virtual "work from anywhere" model that many other agencies and organizations have adopted this year out of pandemic necessity.

"The Great Recession 10 years ago provided an opportunity to offer a virtual agency model that aligned the interests of the client, the team and the agency," said Betsy Merryman, founder, president and managing partner, Merryman Communications. "I started Merryman Communications with a Win-Win-Win approach in mind: Clients get great expertise and great value, the team gets flexibility to create work/life balance while producing meaningful work, and all of us – clients, team and the agency -- are successful together."

The healthcare agency embraces team members that bring substantial skill sets, regardless of location, assembling teams that have always been inherently socially distanced. Done strategically to leverage the considerable talent available – versus a necessity as exists today – the model has allowed like-minded senior communications professionals to work collaboratively with other talent across a wide range of healthcare industry categories and therapeutic areas.

This Win-Win-Win concept has been captured in Merryman Communications' new tagline – Successful Together – rolled out for the 10th anniversary along with a new logo and brand look and feel.

Over its first decade, the agency has had team members working from 11 states and three countries; won nine awards; managed communications surrounding 37 product launches, four mergers/acquisitions and two IPOs; and executed 200+ press releases. Together, the diverse group has shared annual Merryversaries, celebrating when each joined the team, and personal life milestones including one wedding, five babies and nine kids graduating high school.

Reflecting on some of the biggest changes in the last 10 years, founder Merryman includes the acceptance in working from anywhere. The technology existed 10 years ago to be successful virtually, and in 2020 it has become a standard. Others include the rise of the integrated Paid-Earned-Shared-Owned (PESO) model and ensuring related capabilities, and the emergence of social media as the primary way people get their news and information.
