PR Firm Celebrates 60th Anniversary


Martin Flory Group, a family business offering public relations services to marine, outdoor and RV clients, is celebrating its 60th anniversary.

“My dad led the company for its first 20 years, we worked together for the next two decades, and I've had the helm for the past 20 years,” president Laura Martin said in a statement.

The firm was founded by Jerry Martin, who was Johnson Motors’ first sales promotion manager. In its six decades of operating, Martin Flory has helped more than 800 companies and distributed more than 25,000 press releases.

“Though methods have changed drastically since 1962, the media's basic need for good product and company news has not,” general manager Kelly Flory said. “We're thankful for our close relationships with editors and writers worldwide.”
