“Opening an office in Atlanta is a natural next step for Hemsworth,” said Founder and President Samantha Jacobs. “Tourism is a significant driver of the State of Georgia’s economy, which continues to thrive. Atlanta is also a gateway to other expanding markets across the region, and we see outstanding opportunities for growth ahead.”
Georgia native and Atlanta-based lifestyle PR professional Kathryn Thompson has been hired, effective immediately. Hemsworth’s leadership team is currently interviewing candidates for additional positions, who will join Thompson in the agency’s new Buckhead location this November.
“Hemsworth comprises talent from the largest PR and communications companies around the world and while we provide our clients with a truly global perspective, and the international media relationships that come with that, we do so in a distinctively personal, caring way,” said Jacobs. “Our team has outstanding tourism and hospitality industry acumen, unbridled passion for what we do, and we are excited about what is on the horizon.”
Hemsworth currently represents several clients across the State of Georgia, including Amicalola Falls State Park & Lodge, Brasstown Valley Resort & Spa, George T. Bagby State Park & Lodge, Lake Blackshear Resort & Golf Club, Little Ocmulgee State Park & Lodge and Unicoi State Park & Lodge. All are managed by Coral Hospitality. Hemsworth is also the global agency-of-record for Margaritaville, which has an office in Atlanta, and is in discussions with multiple other travel and hospitality players in the market.
