Sachs Media, Florida’s breakthrough communications agency, today announced that its fast-growing team has again expanded with the addition of three new team members: Taylore Maxey, Chloe Swicegood, and Natalie Hernesman.
“As we’ve navigated many organizations through the pandemic, our roster of clients has continued to grow – and so our roster of communicators has grown with it,” said firm Founder and CEO Ron Sachs. “These newest colleagues add knowledge, skills, and abilities that will make an important difference for all our clients.”
Veteran communicator Taylore Maxey joins Sachs Media’s public relations team as an Account Manager. Prior to joining the Sachs Media team, Maxey was press secretary for the Florida Housing Finance Corporation, where she oversaw communications and marketing campaigns for the state’s affordable housing programs and resources. She also worked in the Legislative and Public Affairs Department at the Florida League of Cities, assisting in the messaging and public affairs efforts on behalf of 412 cities and coordinating the implementation and management of former Governor Jeb Bush’s Governor’s Municipal Mentoring Initiative.
Maxey earned her bachelor’s degree in broadcast journalism and public relations from Troy University in Alabama.
Natalie Hernesman, a 2021 graduate of the University of South Florida, will serve as an Account Coordinator at Sachs Media. Hernesman earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from USF’s Zimmerman School of Advertising and Mass Communication, with a concentration on journalism and News Editorials.
Hernesman worked as a reporter for USF NewZRoom, where she took part in uncovering newsworthy content across the Tampa Bay area, including political reporting during the 2020 elections. She also worked as a web editor and social media producer for Florida Focus on NPR affiliate WEDQ.
Chloe Swicegood will be serving Sachs Media as an Account Coordinator. Before joining the Sachs Media team, she earned her Bachelor of Arts degree, with honors, in English, with a concentration on editing, writing, and media, and with a minor in political science. During an internship while pursuing her degree, Swicegood worked for a Florida-based nonprofit, where she helped veterans obtain career opportunities in the STEM fields.
“These three communicators are a tremendous addition to our team and will help serve our diverse clientele,” said Sachs Media President and Partner Michelle Ubben. “With their diverse backgrounds, they’ll bring unique and individualized perspectives to our agency.”
