COLUMBUS, OHIO (March 12, 2021) -- Fahlgren Mortine has announced an agreement to merge operations with Precision Public Relations of Sacramento as the Ohio-based firm extends its reach across the country.

“We are excited to continue our growth in the West by adding Precision Public Relations to our team,” said Neil Mortine, President and CEO of Fahlgren Mortine. “They are a great cultural and strategic fit for our firm and clients, and we are looking forward to to expanding our presence in the region."

Precision Public Relations, based in Roseville, California, was established in 2005 and represents a variety of food, wine and agricultural accounts throughout the West providing product promotion, media relations, crisis communication and issues management capabilities. Precision is owned by John Segale, a public relations veteran in California's Central Valley, who will join Fahlgren Mortine to manage growth in the western United States. Fahlgren Mortine, which has eight offices in the U.S., recently earned a five-star rating on Forbes magazine’s inaugural list of Best PR Agencies for 2021.

As part of the arrangement, Segale will join Fahlgren Mortine's office in Boise, Idaho, which opened in 2013.

“I have known Neil Mortine and the Fahlgren Mortine agency for many years and I have always admired their culture and success. This is a natural fit for our team and for our clients,” said John Segale. He added, “We are very excited to join their team and continue to grow our business throughout the West.”

"On behalf of our Boise team, I welcome John to Idaho," said John Curtis, managing director of Fahlgren Mortine's Boise office. "The Precision PR team is well-known to several of our clients here in Idaho and the West. This arrangement will benefit all sides."

Precision Public Relations will transition to Fahlgren Mortine on April 1, 2021.
