ATLANTA – Cookerly Public Relations today announced its acceptance into the Worldcom Public Relations Group as the Atlanta partner. Worldcom Public Relations Group is the world’s leading partnership of global independently-owned public relations firms, with more offices in more cities and countries than any multinational firm.
Cookerly was officially inducted at the annual Worldcom Americas Region Business Meeting held in Cancun, Mexico on October 8-11.
“As the only PR partnership in the world that requires a stringent, peer-review evaluation for agencies to be accepted, Worldcom is indeed a prestigious organization for independent firms,” said Carol Cookerly, president of Cookerly Public Relations. “Accordingly, we are thrilled to be the Atlanta partner for Worldcom.”
Cookerly will be among more than 125 Worldcom partner firms operating in more than 110 markets on six continents. Worldcom provides partners the ability to quickly and easily engage with each other in efforts that best suit their clients’ needs. Last year, approximately 80 Worldcom partner firms shared business referrals across 90 clients and reported combined revenue of $343 million from a total of 3,286 clients.
Established in 1988, Worldcom was formed so that the strongest, most capable independent public relations firms could serve national and multi-national clients while retaining the flexibility and client-service focus inherent in independent agencies. Through Worldcom, clients have on-demand access to in-depth communications expertise from professional public relations specialists who understand the language, culture and customs of the geographic arenas in which they operate.
