Our Story < back to home

Born in 2007 from a desire to provide unparalleled quality, the KQ founders opened a full-service communications firm focused on offering top-notch public relations, marketing and creative services to nonprofits, small businesses, and faith-based organizations.

In the beginning, we had no idea what was in store for us. We knew there was a need in our community for a firm comprised of genuinely good listeners, who, with integrity and authenticity, could turn goals and ideas into quality services that consistently surpass expectations.

Since our humble beginnings, our client base has grown considerably, and our office has relocated several times to accommodate our expanding business and team. In April 2016, we opened a second location in Atlanta, GA where we were immediately met with clients in search of the type and level of service KQ provides.

KQ has been recognized with awards locally, regionally and nationally. Most recently, KQ President Renee Malone was a finalist for the Memphis Business Journal Small Business Award for Executive of the Year and was recognized in Who’s Who In Black Atlanta. KQ Memphis also received the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) Memphis VOX honors in three categories, including a top honor for our work with Memphis City Beautiful’s Faith in Action event and gold honors for a feature story on Sheffield High School Knights soccer team. Alisha Tillery, our Memphis director, was awarded PR Star of the year. KQ Atlanta received a PRSA Georgia Phoenix award for our work with Atlanta Public Schools.

The 2016 wins follow PRSA Memphis VOX awards in 2015, 2014 and 2010. In 2015, KQ accepted the National School Public Relations Association (NSPRA) award in two categories and three American Graphic Design awards from Graphic Design USA. In 2011, KQ received national recognition with a PRNews Platinum Award for promotions of the Chick-fil-A 5K.

Over the past decade, we have established ourselves as a premier firm, serving individuals and organizations in the business, government, education, nonprofit, healthcare, and faith-based sectors.

Our continued growth serves as a daily reminder of God’s presence in our company. We are honored to serve our communities in Memphis and Atlanta by providing our best to each and every client.

KQ has an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau and is a nationally certified SBE, MBE and DBE.
