CFM announced today that long-time partner Pat McCormick will leave June 1 to form a new consumer PR firm in partnership with his daughter, Allison McCormick.
"Pat has been and remains a respected colleague and, more important, a valued friend," said CFM President Gary Conkling.
CFM will maintain its public relations practice that includes crisis communications, reputation management and marketing PR. "Our staff of seasoned veterans and talented young professionals," Conkling said, "will continue to help clients integrate social media tools into strategic communications plans and provide communications support for legislative projects and grassroots outreach."
With offices in Portland, Salem and Washington, D.C., CFM also provides clients with state lobbying, federal lobbying and a full range of research services, including panel research.
