C2 Strategic Communications Expands Again

LOUISVILLE (Feb. 18, 2019) – After a record year of growth in 2018, C2 Strategic Communications — one of the region’s top PR and marketing firms — is expanding again in 2019, welcoming a new social media strategist to the team.

C2 Strategic’s growth to 14 communications professionals is directly related to an increasing number of clients across Kentucky and the region.

Current clients include RiverLink Tolling System, WellCare Health Plans, Omni Louisville Hotel, PetFirst Pet Insurance, Luckett and Farley, the Louisville Regional Airport Authority and numerous transportation projects in Indiana and Kentucky.

“The more our team grows, the more transformational work we’re able to take on for our clients,” said Chad Carlton, president of C2 Strategic. “We’re excited to continue to be a part of exciting growth and change throughout the region.”
