Granado, who also is a principal, was most recently a freelancing public relations specialist. She previously worked for Fidelity Investments as director of retail communications and regional media relations and has also worked in the public relations division of The Richards Group.

The Dallas shop claims nine clients, including MedSynergies and Chief Oil & Gas. Several of the accounts had previously been at The Gittins Group.
