Place Public Affairs is launched by Sam Myers, Jr., who was most recently managing director at Rational 360. Myers has also served as a presidential advance associate for the Biden White House as well as in the Obama and Clinton administrations. On the agency side, he has served as president of BCW Global’s Direct Impact unit and vice president, partnerships and development at Huge.

ARInsights, which provides an SaaS platform for managing analyst relations and B2B influencer relations programs, acquires The Wind Communications Agency, an analyst relations services firm and consultancy. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed. With the acquisition, ARInsights expands its ServicePlus AR operational services to address companies’ full spectrum of AR needs. The new services include AR strategy; program execution; AR operations and peer reviews management. All Wind Communications staff will become ARInsights team members under the continued leadership of Patricia and Greg Wind. In addition, to support client needs, ARInsights will continue to work with other partners and agencies in the AR ecosystem. “Wind Communications has been a longtime and valued partner of ours, with a well-deserved reputation for excellence in AR strategy and execution,” said ARInsights CEO Andy Zimmerman. “Bringing their founders Patty and Greg Wind, along with their talented team, to ARInsights is a natural and exciting fit for our business and an important part of ARInsights’ evolution.”


CTP, a Boston-based creative communications agency, opens an office in North Carolina. The expansion is planned to fuel growth in industries where CTP has developed significant branding, advertising and communications expertise, including education, travel & tourism, technology and financial services. The agency has already worked with North Carolina-based clients including Apiture, Red Hat, Pinehurst Resort, Wrightsville Beach and Cameron Art Museum. The office will be led by CTP executive creative director Grant Pace. “The energy and innovation driving the state’s growth perfectly align with CTP’s core strengths,” said Pace.
