Intrepid announced it has been elected as a member of Worldcom, the leading global partnership of public relations firms.

Intrepid was ratified as a full member of the Worldcom Public Relations Group at the organization's Americas Region Meeting. Intrepid fulfills an important need in the intermountain region and increases Worldcom's presence to 143 offices in 115 cities around the world.

"With Utah's growing emergence in the domestic and global marketplace it became increasingly important for Worldcom to have a presence in the Beehive State as well as to better serve local companies needing greater reach," said Todd Lynch, Managing Director Worldcom Public Relations Group. "Intrepid's strategic approach, deep experience and track-record of success makes it a great addition to our partnership of firms."     

Intrepid, which was founded in 1995 and has a staff of 17, provides public relations, content, branding, crisis communication, public involvement and marketing services to a diversity of industries including technology, transportation, healthcare, education, construction and sports and entertainment.

"Worldcom provides us with a unique opportunity to build on our strategic approach by offering a greater depth of specialties and boots on the ground in 115 cities around the world," Intrepid President Chris Thomas said. "This allows us to better serve our existing clients as well as provide a bona fide local agency for Utahcompanies that in the past have looked outside the market."

Intrepid was added to Worldcom's global roster along with four other firms in the United States, Europe, Africaand Latin America.
