Legal marketing agency reinforces industry expertise with depth
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (August 15, 2017) — Trozzolo Communications Group is pleased to announce that Proventus Consulting has become a Trozzolo company, enabling the two groups to combine their shared interests, expertise and resources to position Proventus as the legal industry’s leading marketing and public relations consultancy.
“This is an integral part of our long-term business plan,” said Angelo Trozzolo, president and CEO of Trozzolo. "In addition to our focus on Kansas City and Midwest-based organizations, our agency is emerging as a valuable resource to clients within multiple national verticals. We have had tremendous success in the health care vertical with Prairie Dog, and the addition of Proventus gives us similar footing in the legal category. We are pleased to welcome to our team one of the strongest PR and marketing groups in the legal industry. It's the perfect fit for what we continue to build at Trozzolo.”
In 2003, Trozzolo merged with public relations firm Blades & Associates to form one of the region’s first fully integrated marketing agencies. In 2008, the agency added Corporate Communications Group to strengthen its strategic consulting and crisis communication practices. That same year, Trozzolo acquired Prairie Dog, a national hospital marketing firm. And in 2015, Kuhn & Wittenborn Advertising merged its operations into Trozzolo.
In acquiring Proventus Consulting, Trozzolo Communications welcomes a five-year-old legal marketing and PR group that has been recognized by The National Law Journal as the No. 1 Public Relations Firm for Law Firms in its inaugural Best of the Midwest rankings in 2016. Led by Burton Taylor, Proventus will continue operating under the same model that has proven valuable to the legal community since its inception. Taylor will continue to serve as president of Proventus and will join the Trozzolo executive team.
“As a Trozzolo company, Proventus Consulting is excited to serve clients in the same manner and with the same passion – in fact, the Proventus name will not change nor will our mission to serve as the industry’s leading legal marketing and PR agency,” said Burton Taylor, president of Proventus Consulting. “That said, we now have the experience, support and strength offered by Trozzolo, which is an agency we have long looked to as an industry leader. We admire the company for its success in growing a family-owned business into a 65-member team that serves clients across the nation.”
“We are excited about this partnership for many reasons, ranging from the similarities in our culture to our commitment to achieving successes for clients,” Taylor added. “If we had to identify a single reason for partnering, it would be our shared passion for developing strategies that bring out the absolute best in our clients as we help them grow their business.”
Proventus’ team will move to Trozzolo’s Gee Whiz Factory in downtown Kansas City, Missouri, and retain its Denver, Colorado, presence.
