Beck Media & Marketing, the Santa Monica-based entertainment and technology PR and marketing firm, has established an office in Atlanta, Georgia.
Stephanie Booker, a Georgia native and nine-year veteran of the agency, will lead the new office. Booker joined Beck Media in 2009 at the agency’s West Coast headquarters and has relocated to Atlanta to establish the new outpost in Atlanta’s historic Ponce City Market. Booker will continue to report to company COO Steve Spignese out of Santa Monica. Dianna Bonvino has also relocated from the agency’s New York City office to join the Atlanta office.
The clientele of Beck Media & Marketing includes traditional and digital entertainment studios, broadcast and cable networks, production companies, venture-backed technology firms, nonprofit organizations and special events. Beck Media & Marketing is headquartered in Santa Monica, CA, with additional offices in New York; Austin, Texas; and Atlanta.
The Atlanta office will represent a mix of local clients as well as top national entertainment companies. Booker and Bonvino currently lead PR efforts for two locally-produced, nationally syndicated daytime court shows from Orion Television, Couples Court with the Cutlers and Lauren Lake’s Paternity Court, as well as Tenderfoot TV, the content creation company behind the podcast hits “Up and Vanished” and “Atlanta Monster,” among others. Booker will expand the Beck Media & Marketing team in order to serve the growing marketing and communications needs of the agency’s roster of clients, which includes a mix of category leaders and early-stage innovators at the intersection of entertainment and technology.
“Stephanie has been standout on our team since she joined Beck Media,” said Todd Beck, CEO, Beck Media & Marketing. “With Atlanta’s renaissance as an entertainment and technology hub, establishing a local presence in the market makes tons of sense for our clients, for the agency, and for Stephanie. It’s a win on every level.”
