Lambert Edwards expands in Grand Rapids, aims to add five jobs

One of the reasons Jeff Lambert says his company is ready to renovate the 10,000-square-foot building at 47 Commerce and relocate there is because Lambert, Edwards & Associates is poised for growth – again.

That growth includes the projected addition of two new public relations and investor relations positions in the next six months, and another two by the end of 2011. The company filled a fifth position last month, that of head of financial communications.

"We are interested in both seasoned veterans and young professionals with experience in corporate communications or agency public relations, investor relations or financial communications," says Lambert, president. "Our current needs are for people who have a track record of driving business results, are strategic thinkers, have great instincts and uncompromising integrity. We also need people with a beyond-West-Michigan perspective to serve our national and global clients."

Lambert says LE&A is the largest public relations firm in West Michigan, with dozens of West Michigan clients and 100 others in 20 states and five countries. He adds that with offices in Grand Rapids, Lansing and Detroit, LE&A is Michigan's only statewide PR firm.

"Our tag line is 'The PR firm that can read an income statement' and that really sums up our difference as an agency – we focus on bottom line results and the business impact of public relations and corporate communications," Lambert says. "We posted revenue of $4.3 million in 2008 and are on track to report revenue of over $6 million in 2009 as a result of both organic growth and the acquisition of Detroit-based John Bailey & Associates."
