Redefining brands since 2001, the public relations and marketing agency expands its national footprint with second office location.
SACRAMENTO, CA – Merlot Marketing—a national, full-service marketing agency headquartered in Northern California—today announced its expansion of operations near Reno, Nevada. The second office location will allow the agency to expand its footprint and recruit new talent to support a diverse and growing client base.
“For nearly two decades, Merlot Marketing has served clients nationwide, helping to redesign brands and redefine strategies that make an impact,” said Debi Hammond, founder and CEO of Merlot Marketing. “While Sacramento will always be our home, this new location allows our growing agency the opportunity to expand our talent pipeline, tap into the explosive business growth in Northern Nevada and continue to be proactive in our pursuit to best serve our clients.”
From 2017 to 2018, Merlot has grown its business portfolio by 60 percent in Sacramento alone. The Sacramento office currently employs a team of 10 with a Strategic Alliance Network of 25, and plans to bring on additional staff and hire three new team members in the Nevada office this year.
“The Nevada expansion just made sense for Merlot. We wanted a location near Sacramento to enable cultural cross pollination between the two offices, and Nevada’s business-friendly climate makes it a natural choice,” said Hammond. “Smart growth has always been a part of our business strategy, and we’re excited about our new presence in this important market as we continue to expand Merlot’s footprint nationally.”
Merlot’s new office space is located at 1453 Highway 395, Ste. 3, Gardnerville, NV 89410. Hammond will oversee the launch of Merlot’s Nevada office, while continuing to spend time in both offices. Brenda Forman, Vice President and Managing Director, will continue to lead the team in the Sacramento office.
“Our leadership team has always worked closely together, sharing the same commitment and passion to find solutions for our clients that are unmatched in the industry,” said Hammond. “As we expand, this will remain the number one priority for our team, our clients and prospective clients.”
