Karen B. Moore, APR, CPRC
Moore Communications Group started with an ‘aha’ moment, a few connections, and one determined female entrepreneur.
More than two decades after Karen Moore started this firm, our ability to connect and make connections with determination, focus and strategy is the hallmark of our team and the success we generate for clients.
Karen founded Moore Consulting Group in 1992, after a long and successful career in academia, where she indulged her passion for history. She was married and raising their newborn son, but she knew the time was right to become an entrepreneur. The “Group” was really just Karen. She didn’t even have an office, a phone, or a computer. As she recalls today: “I just said, ‘I will do this.’”
Did she ever. What Karen lacked in resources, she made up for with her solid reputation and her connections in the community. Within 10 days, she had five clients and one intern to help her manage the work. Fast forward two decades, and the firm is one of the top-ranked and fastest-growing public relations firms in the nation – recognized by O’Dwyer’s, Inc. 5000 and Florida Trend, among others.
Karen’s “Group” now numbers more than two dozen award-winning communications experts who work with clients across the country. Yet one thing hasn’t changed: Our founder’s vision, and her commitment to helping each team member grow professionally as each of us help clients achieve their own goals.
“The values of this firm haven’t changed,” Karen says. “We live by ethical behavior, integrity and great customer service. We take ownership of what our clients do, and we consider them to be a part of the MCG family. This business started as being a family, really. And it still is.”
Further carrying on her leadership ideals, Karen, now a published author, leverages her thought leadership and advocacy expertise to present strategies that transform the perspective of business leaders across all industries in her book Behind the Red Door: Unlock Your Advocacy Influence and Success.
