As Framework Media Strategies (FMS) continues to grow, so too does the number of people who’ve noticed the firm’s continued achievements. For FMS co-founders Peter Kelly and Jeremiah Sullivan though, there is no question who their biggest supporter has bee.
“From day one,” Sullivan says,”Seton Hall University, our alma mater, has been with us every step of the way. The lessons we learned and the connections we made have certainly transcended the classroom. We’re forever grateful for that.”
After learning TheAlternativePress.com was publishing one of the first feature articles on FMS’ growth, in 2011 representatives of the University alerted Kelly and Sullivan of their intention to illustrate the types of gains young alumni were making despite the economic downturn by spotlighting FMS’ early achievements. In September of that year, Kelly and Sullivan’s interview with The AlternativePress.com was featured on the homepage of the University’s website as its main “In Focus” story for several days.
Several weeks later, Seton Hall University’s award-winning student newspaper The Setonian also featured the achievements of Kelly and Sullivan’s budding public relations and marketing firm.
In 2012, FMS and the University again crossed paths. After being recognized for their continued work with the University’s award-winning PR program and its undergraduate students during the annual ROPE in Success event, Kelly and Sullivan were included in a feature that appeared in the Spring-Summer Issue of the University’s Alumni Magazine. Entitled “Start-Ups and Innovators,” the piece highlighted those alumni who’d made great strides in their entrepreneurial endeavors. In October of that year, the University also shared news of Kelly and Sullivan’s inclusion as media relations experts in the newly published “Media Magnetism: How to Attract the Favorable Publicity You Want and Deserve” with their alumni via their blog and monthly newsletter.
Today, FMS’ co-owners continue to remain active in the greater Seton Hall University community. Recently, both Kelly and Sullivan partook in a career panel for undergraduate students and eagerly consult students on the completion of their public relations campaigns when asked.
