ATLANTA Neathawk Dubuque said it recently opened a new office in Roanoke, Va. John Bedor, business development director, will lead the operation.
Bedor said the Roanoke location would serve current clients Virginia Exile-Project Safe Neighborhoods and Mill Mountain Zoo. Currently, Bedor is the sole staff member at the office, and he still handles business development at the agency's headquarters in Richmond, Va.
Agency chief executive officer Roger Neathawk said that the shop's presence in Roanoke would allow it to serve its existing clients while pursuing new business opportunities.
"This is a second operation for us to reach clients in Southwest Virginia, East Tennessee and North Carolina," Bedor said. "It's an ideal location that will grow as we establish a new client base."
Neathawk Dubuque has 18 employees including Bedor at its Richmond office. The agency said it does not yet plan to relocate other staffers to Roanoke.
