Former editor starts local PR firm
Tapping skills as a local journalist and public relations official, Doug Mell is starting up his own public relations firm.
The company, Mell Communications, will write news releases for area businesses and groups, as well as train members on how to work with media. Other writing services and crisis communication services also will be part of the firm’s work, according to a news release announcing the new company.
“It’s more important than ever that businesses and groups have the ability to tell their stories to the public,” Mell said in the news release.
Formerly the editor of the Leader-Telegram for 16 years, Mell then went to work for UW-Stout and has been the university’s executive director of communications for 14 years.
