Katherine Hollar Barnard, founder, and managing partner of Firesign | Enlightened Legal Marketing, announced the addition of two business partners today: Firesign Vice President Amy Nouri and Firesign Creative Director Katie McNeil.
Nouri uses the four main elements of modern public relations – paid, earned, shared and owned media – to help Firesign’s clients attract, win and retain business. She leads major accounts and oversees the agency’s content and communications operations.
Fusing her graphic design experience and acumen with her legal training, McNeil develops and creates award-winning website designs and brand identities for Firesign’s legal industry clients. She leads Firesign’s creative team and implements new service offerings.
Launched in February 2017 by Barnard, Firesign is nationally certified as a Women’s Business Enterprise by the Women’s Business Development Center-Midwest, a regional certifying partner of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) – the nation’s largest third-party certifier of businesses owned and operated by women.
Firesign is also one of the nation’s only marketing agencies solely devoted to the legal industry, helping law firms build their brands and bottom lines. The agency’s work has been recognized internationally by the dotCOMM Awards and the MarCom Awards; in its home market, Firesign has won every category in Missouri Lawyers Weekly’s Reader Rankings for four consecutive years.
