Leading Emerging Markets PR Firm Announces Kyle Porter as Chief Executive Officer
Porter Previously Served as Firm’s President, Looks to Rapidly Expand Growth of Agency That Branded the Top Names in Cannabis and Helped Legalize Global Markets for CBD
San Diego, CA - (NewMediaWire) - October 21, 2020 - CMW Media (“CMW” or the “Company”), a public relations and creative agency specializing in emerging markets, announced today the appointment of Kyle Porter as its Chief Executive Officer. The strategic move is intended to further ignite the rapid growth of an award-winning firm that has educated millions of news viewers on emerging markets including the science of cannabinoid therapeutics, and spearheaded public relations and digital communications campaigns that have opened large global markets.
Porter previously served as the Company’s President since 2017, where he oversaw a 245% growth in the Company’s revenue as well as a restructuring that added a Digital Marketing division to the agency. He brings extensive strategic leadership experience from previous agencies specializing in marketing and public relations to his expanded role.
“After helping pioneer several industries including the hemp-based cannabidiol (CBD) industry in multiple countries, this agency has a story like I’ve never seen,” Porter said. “I want to thank Andrew Hard for entrusting me with the lead executive role and our founding investors for all that they have done in order to position CMW Media’s success. Without them, I would not have the strong foundation on which to further grow this enterprise. Furthermore, I would like to thank our countless clients who have entrusted us with their hard-earned dollars to bring cohesive messaging to national audiences. We will continue to deliver for our partners every time.”
A graduate of Northern Arizona University, Porter has been an active member of the marketing industry for over a decade and has been featured in top global news media outlets such as CNN Money, Bloomberg and Forbes.
