A major agricultural PR agency and an ag media group have just announced new offices.

gs-moveG&S Business Communications, a global independent public relations and marketing agency, has moved its Raleigh office to the new Bank of America Tower located in the North Hills section.

“After more than doubling our Raleigh presence within three years and expanding our services and capabilities, we sought an environment that would be a more fitting backdrop for our dynamic business culture,” said Kerry Henderson, G&S principal and managing director in Raleigh, N.C.

G&S occupies 25,517 square feet in the new suite of offices, which houses its expanding staff of client service, creative, digital and social media, and business administration professionals. The convenient location, range of cultural activities and growing roster of global organizations relocating to North Hills are advantages that will allow G&S to continue attracting top talent and new business opportunities. The office move was completed on June 21.

Farm Journal MediaAfter 139 years of being based in Philadelphia, Farm Journal is now making its Lenexa, Kansas office near Kansas City as the operational headquarters for the corporation.

“Following the acquisition of the Vance properties, this makes the most sense for our business and our customers. About a third of our 270 employees are based here and probably 75% of our customer base is located within 500 miles of Kansas City,” explains Farm Journal CEO Andy Weber. “In addition, we have more senior management in Kansas City than any other location, headed by Publishing Division President Ron Wall, a Kansas City native.”

Farm Journal remains legally headquartered in Philadelphia and is a Pennsylvania corporation. Weber, Steve Custer, President and COO, and Joe Matthews, CFO, remain in the Philadelphia office as does Farm Journal’s finance department and a total of 15 employees.
