Centerline Stays Weird With Opening of Austin Branch
Mar 17, 2017
We are thrilled to announce we are opening a second Centerline location in Austin, Texas. The office will be located in Austin’s eclectic North Loop neighborhood and will be fully-staffed with strategic account and creative talent.
Centerline has significant existing client business in Austin and the city offers a plethora of fresh new business opportunities for the agency. Additionally, Austin was specifically chosen due to its similarities to Raleigh in terms of culture and creativity.
The Austin location will open in the next few months and will operate as a fully-staffed extension of the Raleigh headquarters. Main operations will remain in Raleigh, with a newly expanded meeting and collaboration space adjacent to our current location in the Glenwood South district.
“Our focus has and will continue to be serving clients in the most creative and efficient ways possible,” said Charles Long, founder and CEO. “As our clients have grown and adopted a real-time, agile approach to marketing, it made sense for us to open up a second location for stronger, more efficient client service.”
A lifelong northerner, I began my career in agency public relations in Rochester, New York, later moving to New York City, working with a variety of technology and consumer brands from Xerox and IBM to Blackberry and KAYAK. I loved the fast-paced and entrepreneurial environment and learned so much about myself, client and people management, media relations and how to properly mail merge.
Now a relocated northerner and wannabe southerner, I still love the pace, people and spirit of agency life in Raleigh. As Centerline’s Communications Manager, I get to help amplify the amazing content that we produce as an agency and thought leaders through events, media placement, relationships with influencers and social media.
