If you’ve been following along on our Instagram stories, you know we’re on the move! March is expanding its New England footprint to the Empire State of the South. That’s right: We’ve planted ourselves among the peaches and peanuts of Atlanta. You may know the ATL as the home of The Coca-Cola Company, CNN and one of the largest aquariums in the world. Did you know that this capital city also is one of the fastest-growing, high-tech urban centers in the nation?

Inspired by the region’s digital innovation and tech industry growth, we can’t think of a better place to take our Innovation Inside Out. As I begin to build the March Communications network here, I especially am attracted to the city’s energy. Atlantans are warm and welcoming – and they are talented, hardworking and on-the-move. There’s much to learn and do here, and I can’t wait to bring you along for the ride.

If you’re an Atlanta-based B2B or consumer tech company looking for new PR and communications partners, show us that Southern hospitality and reach out. We’re ready to innovate together!

Meanwhile, if you’re curious to learn more about what powers this top tech hub and business powerhouse, read on. We know you’ll be as moved as we are.
