JPL today announced a new strategic alliance with Abel Communications, adding public relations services to its portfolio of integrated communications capabilities. As part of the agreement, Abel will expand by opening a new Harrisburg office within JPL, offering services including media relations, social media, and content development.
The firms have collaborated for more than a year on integrated programs for mutual clients and view the official partnership as a natural evolution. By working together more closely and fluidly, JPL and Abel can offer clients the full range of brand building services, all under one roof.
“We selected Abel because the firm brings a fresh, progressive approach to PR that combines traditional tactics with social media and content development, leveraging the latest in emerging technologies,” said Bill Kobel, vice president of strategy and integrated programs at JPL. “For clients, we can now deliver fully integrated programs while removing the cost and hassle of dealing with multiple agencies.”
Abel’s capabilities complement JPL’s expertise in branding and marketing, web development, video production, learning solutions, and meetings and events services.
“The opportunity to partner with JPL is very exciting because of the firm’s depth, talent, and strong reputation for outstanding creative work,” said Abel Communications President Greg Abel. “Together we can help clients navigate this fast-changing communications landscape and deliver the right mix of strategy and tactics.”
Specifically, JPL and Abel plan to help clients integrate media relations, content development, and social media programs into their current and future marketing programs. The firms recently began working together to support Conrad Siegel Actuaries, one of the largest employee benefits firms in Pennsylvania.
Added Kobel, “This alliance is great for our companies, but most importantly, it will add tremendous value for our clients. JPL and Abel Communications are both motivated by the same fundamental goals, to move our clients’ brands forward and help them grow.”
