Agency Updates: RP3, Messner Media Group and Precision

by | Jul 1, 2024

RP3 Agency is celebrating its 15th anniversary. According to Beth Johnson, founder, “today isn’t just about celebrations or successes. It’s about gratitude. This milestone would not have been possible without the support of so many people who helped build the vibrant, thriving agency we are today. Some of you will remember that RP3 was born from the remnants of another agency, which closed abruptly and left employees jobless on June 12, 2009. Without paychecks, our employees came together to support the clients who still needed us and, in the process, we created RP3. A huge thank you to the founding crew—Founding partners Jim Lansbury and Scott Gold, plus Tiffany S. (aka Lucy), Kristi Kelly, Richard G. Redman, John Heenan and Jacqui Hannigan. Your talents and drive were bigger than the challenges we faced as a start-up business amidst a dreadful economy.”

Messner Media Group LLC, adds Karen Tobin as account director. This announcement comes as the woman-owned firm celebrates its two-year anniversary.  Tobin brings over 15 years of experience in project management, communications and design. She has a proven track record of managing high-stakes projects for federal agencies and Fortune 500 companies. Tobin’s diverse background spans roles in government contracting, defense, technology and commercial sectors, making her an exceptional addition to the team. In her previous roles, Tobin successfully led high-profile projects for the Defense Media Activity (DMA) within the U.S. Department of Defense, U.S. Treasury Department and Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA). In the commercial realm, she brought worldwide recognition to a Washington, D.C.-area tech startup and guided product rebranding efforts for major corporations.

Tim Mulvey, a Capitol Hill communications veteran, and Melissa Miller, who recently led policy communications at Ford, have joined Precision as senior vice presidents. Mulvey most recently served as communications director for the House Select Committee investigating the January 6th attack on the US Capitol. Prior to that, he spent nearly seven years as the Democratic communications director for the House Committee onForeign Affairs, where he managed communications on international relations, national security, and oversight activities involving the State Department and other foreign-affairs agencies. Miller comes to Precision from Ford, where she played a key role in maintaining and enhancing the company’s reputation while promoting its policy agenda, particularly during its transition to electric vehicles. Before her tenure at Ford, Miller had a decade of experience on the campaign trail, including roles as deputy communications director at the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) and press secretary at the Democratic Governors Association (DGA).
