Atlanta means business. Home to the headquarters of more than 20 local Fortune 1,000 companies, and supporting offices of more than 700 of the Fortune 1,000, ours is a city boasting an array of companies in diverse industries and specialties. This synergistic variety keeps our city economically sound, vibrant and exciting.
Many industry leaders operate out of Atlanta. And with good reason. In addition to being a great place to do business, Atlanta also boasts a rich heritage in literature, a history of social revolution, and is world-renowned as a host of major national and international events, including two Super Bowls, four World Series, the Centennial Olympic Games, and major industry summits and conferences.
As one of the city's largest public relations agencies, in fact one of the largest agencies in the Southeast, we're proud to call Atlanta home. Here we use our deep industry knowledge, strategic thinking, collaborative approach and state-of-the-art technologies to deliver world-class communications services.
Since we opened our doors in 1985, we've achieved an impressive track record of results. But beyond the numbers, the processes and the awards, it's really our people who make Ketchum Atlanta special. Our outstanding staff of marketing and corporate communication professionals are among the most talented in the industry, ready and able to provide a range of communications services, from strategic counsel to on-the-ground tactical support. We are passionate about our business and the business of our clients, and we continue to change and grow to make sure we're always offering that something extra, that something new.
During our 20-plus years in business, Ketchum Atlanta has evolved to meet the changing business landscape of Atlanta. We began as a small public relations agency in Atlanta, and as the city has grown, so, too, have our practices and capabilities. For example, as technology became an integral part of Atlanta's business landscape, Ketchum Atlanta grew its technology expertise and practice to become the Southeast's leader. Similarly, as healthcare and biotechnology have emerged as key industries, our healthcare practice has expanded to provide strategic communications counsel to leaders in that industry. And as Atlanta grew to become a major corporate hub, Ketchum Atlanta responded by offering corporate reputation management and crisis management services.
As a city with a rich heritage of cultural and business diversity, Atlanta exemplifies best practices. With something for everyone, it is a city that Ketchum Atlanta is proud to call home.
