Marine PR group has new North Carolina office


Laura Burgess Marketing, public relations and marketing communications for the boating and recreational fishing markets, among others, relocated its headquarters to downtown New Bern, N.C.

Founded in the fall of 2003 in Portsmouth, N.H., the company relocated to New Bern in July 2010. After 11 years of operating in home offices, the company has expanded to a 1,500-square-foot-downtown office.

The new address, effective immediately, is 245 Craven St., New Bern, N.C. 28562.

“When I started this company 11 years ago I had a vision of how I wanted it to grow and the direction I wanted it to take,” company president and founder Laura Burgess said in a statement. “It has been an amazing ride to watch my company mature, bring on new employees and expand into this new location. This downtown location will be a great benefit to our company and is just another step in the right direction. We welcome our clients and the business community to come visit our new office.”

Although the physical address of Laura Burgess Marketing changed, the phone number (252-288-5805), fax number (252-288-5806) and mailing address remain the same.
