Tigercomm to acquire Florida clean energy PR firm
Vienna marketing firm expects to close its acquisition of Chase Media by November
Vienna-based Tigercomm, a clean energy-focused public relations firm, is acquiring Tampa, Florida-based Chase Media Services LLC, in a deal that is expected to be completed by Nov. 1.
Mike Casey, the Tigercomm founder and president, said the acquisition will help Tigercomm meet growing demand from clean economy sectors.
“This acquisition is a strong fit with our growth trajectory,” he said in a statement. “As a firm specializing in clean energy, we know that many times the U.S. energy market acts more like a collection of 50 state markets. Chase Media spent a decade working in one of those top bellwether markets.”
Chase Media focuses on cleantech and climate change communication, with clients including the Union of Concerned Scientists and Florida Clinicians for Climate Action.
Chase Media founder Melissa Baldwin became a senior vice president for Tigercomm last week.
“I’m excited to put my skills to use to accelerate the transition to a clean economy,” Baldwin said in a statement. “I look forward to helping cleantech firms win with customers, investors and policy makers.”
