Advertising executive Therese Hessler, most recently the Vice President of Media at The Leffler Agency, is launching TMH Agency, an advertising, media and public relations agency specializing in branding and creating direct response campaigns for both local and national clients.
The agency’s portfolio of services includes advertising, competitive media buying, public relations, digital and social media, SEO, graphic design, and TV and radio production.
The Baltimore-based agency claims it will differentiate itself from competitors through understanding the clients' bottom line and specific business goals as a first step before providing strategic and comprehensive media strategies.
"Along with having the local feel but skillset of a national agency, TMH Agency will stand out based on my dedication and love for what I do," says Therese Hessler, Founder, TMH Agency. "If you asked around with the markets I've worked in, people would tell you that the dedication I put into my work is above most. I don't mind rolling up my sleeves and getting the job done...whether that's on a weekend or late evenings or early mornings."
The agency commences with four full-time employees, and will work with freelance specialists based on project need. Hessler has worked in advertising for over eight years, specializing in media buying, public relations and digital advertising.
The other three full-timers are digital media expert, Ashley Winters, graphic designer and TV and radio production manager, Matt Heck and public relations expert, Anna Dorato. "I wanted my agency to have a boutique type feel so we can provide the hands on approach of a local agency but we have the skill set to hand clients and make recommendations like a national agency," says Hessler.
TMH is currently working with Antwerpen Motors, which has eight dealerships in the Baltimore-Washington area.
