Wellington, FL - May 21, 2012 - Phelps Media Group, Inc, International is pleased to announce the addition of a new department to their company designed to provide additional services to their existing clients, to expand their local exposure and to create a charitable component to the industry. Maureen Gross, a long-time resident and leader in Palm Beach County, has been selected to spearhead this new department for Phelps Media Group, Inc, International (PMG) and to handle most of the PMG activities in Palm Beach County area that are not related to the equestrian world. Gross brings with her a vast base of local contacts in Palm Beach County, and over 25 years of community service and non-profit experience.
“We are thrilled to have Maureen Gross on board with us at Phelps Media Group,” stated Mason Phelps, Jr., the president of Phelps Media Group. “We here at PMG are a public relations firm primarily focused on promoting events and people in the equestrian world. By having Maureen join our staff, we will be able to expand the reach and focus of our firm. This will add a whole new dimension to our work, and simultaneously offer our clients even more services.”
The new department will include the implementation of event organizing and charitable fundraising services—services that will be available to PMG’s existing clients and to new clients that need these services. Gross explains, “I have worked as a fundraiser in the community for over 25 years. But, in this economy, I know that many non-profits are not able to have a full-time person on staff to fundraise for them. By creating this new aspect to PMG’s client services, we will be able to provide experienced and knowledgeable assistance to an organization that just needs help on a single event.”
Gross’ experience will, also, be utilized to assist with existing events that PMG is already involved with such as---Challenge of the Americas, Equus Foundation (Fete Cheval and Equestrian Idol), International Gay Polo Tournament, World Dressage Masters (social aspects), US Equestrian Team Foundation and many others during the upcoming year.
PMG’s expansion of services and outreach to the local communities in Palm Beach County offers a new opportunity for both PMG, their clients and ultimately, the local community. Phelps concludes, “by adding this new department at PMG, it provides us with the ability to not only maximize our relationship and offerings with our clients, but to also expand our client base and influence in the local community. It is a win/win situation, and we are happy to have Maureen onboard.”
