Longtime Fearey Director Jacque Seaman to lead local efforts in the state
Today, The Fearey Group announced its expansion into the state of Montana, including the appointment of Jacque Seaman as director to lead local Montana marketing and communication efforts in Billings.
Seaman brings 10+ years of strategic marketing and communications experience working in New York City and Seattle with local, national and global organizations focused on a variety of issues and sectors including technology, health care, science, arts, environment, sustainability, education and consumer. She will work with the firm’s president and CEO Aaron Blank to grow Fearey’s presence across the state as well as other regional U.S. markets. The firm is on pace to have a record-breaking year, having nearly doubled in size since Blank acquired the firm from its founding partner in 2014.
“Fearey is a West Coast full-service communications agency that has ties to markets all over the world through client relationships and our PR Global Network of 50 independent agencies that we co-founded back in 1991,” said Blank. “Expanding our presence into Montana is a strategic and exciting venture as we see great potential in the state’s fast-growing technology, agriculture, energy and sustainability sectors.”
“Billings is growing quickly and there is a lot of buzz around not only industry, but the arts and culture scene,” said Seaman, who is now based in Billings. “I’m excited to introduce Fearey’s services here and connect with the changemakers and forward-thinking leaders to tell their stories of mission and impact.”
