Recent announcements reflect new, existing state agency partnerships

Chernoff Newman, a top-ranking Southeastern agency and South Carolina’s longest-standing and most prominent integrated marketing communications firm has been selected to provide multi-year services for two South Carolina state agencies.

The South Carolina American Revolution Sestercentennial Commission (SC250) tapped Chernoff Newman to create and implement a statewide integrated campaign commemorating the 250th anniversary of the Revolutionary War. SC250, which was established by the state General Assembly in 2018 under the South Carolina Department of Archives and History, celebrates the state’s efforts in securing America’s independence. “South Carolina played a major role in winning the Revolutionary War, with over 400 battles and skirmishes taking place across every corner of our state,” said SC250 Executive Director Molly Fortune. “This 250-year milestone is the perfect opportunity to educate residents and tourists on South Carolina’s significant role in Revolutionary-era history as well as world history. Chernoff Newman is the right partner to help us tell that story.”

The South Carolina Department of Agriculture (SCDA) announced that Chernoff Newman will continue to provide marketing and advertising solutions for the promotion and expansion of the state’s agricultural industry. Over a 21-year partnership, Chernoff Newman has worked with SCDA to develop some of its most recognizable brands, including Certified SC and Fresh on the Menu. “Agribusiness is South Carolina’s top industry,” said South Carolina Commissioner of Agriculture Hugh Weathers. “Together, SCDA and Chernoff Newman highlight the farmers and producers who make this industry prosper, and the products that put us on the map.”

Carrie McCament, CEO of Chernoff Newman, celebrates these client announcements, both new and existing. “When I joined Chernoff Newman one year ago, it was evident that the firm has a storied track record and is also poised for growth. It is an honor to continue serving our time-honored clients while forging new and beneficial relationships.”
