TALLAHASSEE, FL. (September 12, 2012) – Moore Communications Group announces the promotion of Terrie Ard, APR, CPRC, to President. The move recognizes Ard’s achievements as Senior Vice President of the firm, a position she has served in since 2006.

In her role as President, Ard will continue leading daily operations of the firm, as an instrumental member of the leadership team and providing strategy and counsel for Moore Communications Group clients. The shift also allows for increased collaboration with Founder and CEO Karen B.

In many ways, she has already been fulfilling the role of President. This title recognizes her many contributions and a new chapter for MCG.”

Ard began at Moore Communications Group as a PR assistant in 1995, but quickly proved her abilities as a strategic professional with direct perception and quick insight, offering solutions for everything from small daily issues to major communications crises.
