By Relentless Awareness-733 Views-No Comment

During the last six months since the COVID-19 pandemic uprooted many of our lives, we have taken this time to re-calibrate and reinvest in our ability to serve our clients.

From expanding our public affairs and regulatory practice to investing in media production and capabilities, we recommitted to the “I” in our slogan “Trusted, Innovative, and Non-Stop.” It is no more evident today that it is critically important to be innovative in how we get the message out on behalf of our clients, but how can we support them during these trying times?

That commitment has led us to expand our team to ensure that we can better support you and your business or organization. That being said, we wanted to introduce (or reintroduce you) to some of our team members, in addition to those being promoted.

Brooke Pominville has returned to Relentless as chief of staff. In her new role, she will lead strategic projects by the agency, in addition to representing the partners on a variety of initiatives. Previously, Brooke was a projects and operations manager tasked with a wide array of clients, ranging from municipal government, craft beverage manufacturing, hospitality, and more. Tenacious and meticulous, Relentless benefits from Brooke going the extra mile for the agency’s clients and its future.

Joining the agency first as an administrative manager, Abena is tasked with managing the agency’s internal operations and processes. Outside of her work at Relentless, she is a highly-acclaimed bartender who has won regional and sub-national competitions.


Sam Moskowitz was promoted to director of digital communications.

He is intimately aware of advancing clients’ goals through innovative digital strategy practices and is able to distill myriad points into consumable copy.
