Scooter Media, a Covington-based public relations agency, and Spotted Yeti Media, a smart video agency based in Covington, Ky., today announced they have secured new office space at 823 Scott Street in Covington in order to meet growing demand and expansion of services for both firms.
Spotted Yeti Founder and President Molly Berrens purchased the building in partnership with Scooter Media Founder and President Shannan Boyer. The move reunites the former neighbors; the two companies occupied space together from 2013-2016 in Covington before growth of their respective companies led to the need for separate, larger office spaces. The two will move their agencies into the Scott Street building as the main tenants.
This is the latest news in a year of growth for both businesses. Under Boyer’s leadership, Scooter Media has been named Small/Mid-Sized PR Agency of the Year for the past three years by the Cincinnati chapter of the Public Relations Society of America. Now at nine employees, the agency has plans to add two additional employees once they have relocated to the new space. With the move, the agency will also expand its offerings to include graphic design, in addition to public relations, social media and content services for clients.
Scooter Media’s office will be on the building’s second floor, which also features 3,500 square feet of space. In addition to Scooter Media’s offices, the larger space will enable Boyer to sublease a portion of the second floor or further expand her agency the future.
Spotted Yeti has also experienced employee growth – currently at five full time employees – and added services and capabilities to meet client needs, including a new Smart Video strategy service. In the summer, the company was selected as a BLINK projection mapping artist. Their work, “HUEmanity,” was projected on the side of the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center.
Spotted Yeti’s new office will be on the building’s first floor, which includes 3,500 square feet of space to house a video production studio in order to expand their service offerings. New edit suites and creative spaces will be more conducive to the team’s workflow and productivity.
“Both Shannan and I are committed to Covington and had been looking for property to meet our growing needs. This opportunity presented itself and it was a no-brainer. Our companies complement each other in values and services,” Berrens said.
“We are two female entrepreneurs in the media industry, and we’ve been fortunate enough to grow our own businesses while supporting one another from the start,” Boyer said. “We both knew we needed more space for our firms and we feel lucky to have found a place that can work for both of us while allowing us to stay in Covington.”
“Plus, we’ve already shared office space before, so we know we’re good roommates,” Berrens added.
“Seeing Scooter Media and Spotted Yeti grow their creative businesses in the Cov has been great, but seeing these two women-led companies collaborate to cohabitate and invest in a building here is an inspiring continued commitment to our community,” said Tom West, Covington’s Economic Development Director.
Both agencies expect to move into their office spaces in early spring after renovations and build-outs are complete on each floor.
