ATLANTA (October 5, 2006) — Jackson Spalding, the Atlanta-based image creation, cultivation and communication firm, today announced the addition of Tiffani Thomas, who will join the agency’s Orkin, Chick-fil-A Bowl, Georgia Transmission Corporation and Home Ownership Preservation Foundation teams.
Thomas is the 13th new hire for Jackson Spalding since January, capping off a year of unprecedented growth for the 11-year-old firm
“We are honored to welcome Tiffani to the team. Her experience will reinforce our growing social marketing practice and will add value to some of our long-standing clients,” said Glen Jackson, a principal of the firm. “With each new team member, we expand our capabilities and elevate the level of service we offer our clients.”
Thomas came to Jackson Spalding after working for a global public relations firm where she specialized in media relations for consumer, corporate and healthcare accounts. A Fayetteville, Ga. native, she attended St. John the Evangelist School, where she was named A Better Chance Scholar. This honor took her to Rhode Island’s St. George’s Prep School, an experience she says paved the way for her career in public relations.
Thomas was a Presidential Scholar and member of the Leadership Institute of Hampton University, graduating with honors from the Scripps Howard School of Journalism and Communications. She also completed a Master of Science degree from Ohio University’s E. W. Scripps School of Journalism, where she was a Gerbig Scholar. Thomas recently presented her thesis on the portrayal of minorities in contemporary media to the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communications.
