LANSING –Truscott Rossman is expanding its team with the addition of Mark Meyer, former Lansing State Journal sports editor, as senior writer and account executive and Michigan State University graduate LaToya English as an associate account executive.
Meyer, of East Lansing, was sports editor of the State Journal from March 2007 through June 2011 and previously had been the newspaper’s assistant features editor. He also has been a reporter, editor and page designer at daily newspapers in suburban Chicago, downstate Illinois and Lexington, Ky.
Meyer joined the Truscott Rossman team in October 2011 in a freelance role and has contributed to projects with clients such as Michigan State University Student Services, East Detroit Public Schools and Soave Enterprises.
“Our clients depend on first-class response and results,” said Kelly Rossman-McKinney, CEO and principal of Truscott Rossman. “Mark’s diversity of leadership and hands-on experience will continue to help elevate the performance and depth of our team.”
English, of Dimondale, has interned with Truscott Rossman since August 2011, working with clients including the Coalition Protecting Auto No-Fault, Michigan State University College of Education, and Cirque Du Soleil.
Prior to joining Truscott Rossman, English interned as a public relations assistant for Deb Cherry’s campaign for Genesee County treasurer. She has also done communications work for the Old Town Business & Arts Development Association, serving as promotions director of the First Annual MiFunk Concert and the 16th Annual Lansing JazzFest.
“Our client base is growing rapidly and we want to ensure the seamless delivery of top-notch service,” said John Truscott, president and principal of Truscott Rossman. “LaToya’s diverse background will be instrumental as we continue expanding our services statewide.”
Truscott Rossman represents local, statewide, national and international clients from its main office in Lansing and satellite offices in Grand Rapids and Detroit. The firm offers a full range of communications services, including issues management, crisis communication, litigation communication, media relations, new media, government affairs, ballot initiatives, community relations and grassroots initiatives.
