Wendy Pearl has relaunched her boutique PR agency Wendy Pearl Public Relations, LLC.
The company reopens with clients Mandy Barnett, the Georgia Music Foundation’s annual “Georgia On My Mind” concert event, and the “I Believe In Nashville” campaign, which is currently focusing on raising funds for tornado victims in Middle Tennessee.
Pearl began WPPR in January 2017 after 17 years as the head of communications for the Country Music Association. In 2018, she shuttered the company to return to Sony Music Nashville as Vice President of Media, where she worked with Old Dominion, Matt Stell, and Ryan Hurd, among others.
“Being an advocate for the artists and causes I believe in has been the foundation of my company,” said Pearl. “A pivotal time for our industry with so many challenges ahead, there are incredible stories that deserve and need to be told. I’m ready to use the experience I’ve gained at major labels, television networks, and CMA to give dimension and context to the creators and music I love.”
Pearl began her career at The Miami Herald, and also guided the label media departments for Sony Music Nashville and Asylum Records, as well as country television network TNN, in addition to her time at the Country Music Association. While at CMA, Pearl and her editorial team won the Award of Excellence from the International Association of Business Communicators for CMA’s quarterly CMA Close Up magazine.
