A Meaningful Month of Giving Thanks

November 2021

It’s been said that gratitude is an attitude. In that case, we have a lot of attitude at Hatcher these days! Last month, we teased two awards we were about to receive. We’re proud — and abundantly grateful — that Hatcher was selected as a finalist for PRNEWS Platinum PR Award for national medium-sized Agency of the Year and as one of Bethesda Magazine’s Top Places to Work. These awards validate our team’s hard work, expertise, curiosity, and inclusive engagement, both with our clients and each other. November has proven to be a very meaningful month of giving thanks for the Hatcher team.

In this edition of Spark, we’re happy to share insights from three leaders at Hatcher who inspire us every day. Robert Johnston confirms that earned media indeed must be earned and offers advice to increase your odds of placement. Also, with the start of the 2022 Maryland General Assembly soon upon us, Michael Mershon articulates our passion for public affairs and improving the lives of our fellow Marylanders. Finally, Maia Alexander describes the firm’s recent growth and the meaningful, intentional changes we’ve made to our recruitment strategy to attract increasingly diverse talent and retain our always-valued team.

Spark will return in 2022. Until then, we wish you joyous holiday celebrations and a prosperous start to the new year.
