About Us

Chartwell Agency was founded in 2002 as PR Etc. by owner and President, Rebecca Epperson.  PR Etc. was started as a boutique public relations firm in a spare bedroom of her home on Chartwell Drive (thus Chartwell Agency).  In September of 2014, PR Etc. officially became Chartwell Agency. Today, Chartwell Agency represents a team of professionals with a diverse wealth of backgrounds and experiences upon which we draw for our clients. “Chartwell” honors our roots, and “Agency” describes the team approach we leverage to make the magic happen!

Chartwell Agency has grown during the past 15 years from a public relations firm to an integrated communications agency with a breadth and depth of experience across five lines of business including strategic facilitation and training, marketing, public relations, social media and events. To be effective in today’s information-saturated market, our clients need us to create and implement strategies across multiple channels – media, marketing collateral, websites, outreach efforts, social media and more. We believe that no two clients are the same, so we create integrated, customized and effective communications strategies as unique as each of our projects.
