Power Spotlight: Marsha Middleton ~ M-Squared Public Relations
In 2008, Marsha Middleton formed M-Squared Public Relations, which began as a home-based business. “I love PR and I love my family and launching M-Squared allowed me to enjoy what I do in the comfort of my home while remaining accessible to my children,” she says. “We’ve outgrown the home office, but our new space is close to my home and their school.”
Middleton thrives on the fast-paced world of public relations, and loves the challenge of each new day. “I have the potential to turn everything I experience into a story,” she says. “I love being able to devise and execute new ideas for great client results. It might be cliché to say that I think outside the box, but I do. And I love it.”
Middleton and her team represent clients in the hotel, travel, entertainment, tourism, restaurants and high-end retail industries. Marsha and her team boasts a client roster of brands including Four Seasons Hotel, Food Network winning chef, Ed Harris and Tiffany & Co.
As the mother of two, Middleton divides her time between work and family, but always finds ways to give back to the community that has been so good to her.
