Since its founding by The PR Maven®, Nancy Marshall, our agency has grown from its early days as a one-woman agency operated out of an A-frame house on the banks of the Carrabassett River near Sugarloaf to one of the most highly regarded and longest-operating PR firms in Maine. Now, the agency has embarked on an exciting new chapter.

Maine Foliage In the beginning, Marshall Communications was focused largely on Nancy’s skills and connections. As the agency matured, Nancy hand-selected a leadership team made up of some of the very best and brightest professional communicators to guide the agency’s growth. To reflect the new leadership, the agency changed its name from “Marshall Communications” to “Marshall Communications” in January 2018. Nancy, as agency founder, team visionary, and number one cheerleader, is highly enthusiastic about the power, enthusiasm and creativity the leadership team is bringing to the table.

Headquartered in Augusta, Marshall Communications also recently expanded into the greater Portland market, adding a location in the Old Port in 2017 to better serve our growing client base.
