It seems appropriate that Tucker/Hall is based in Tampa, Florida’s historic Ybor City, one of the state’s most storied, iconic and significant neighborhoods.
For those who don’t know, Ybor City is just north of the Port of Tampa, which has been our area’s connection to the world for more than 500 years. As a strategic communications firm, we are also connected to the world through our clients, various partnerships—including our firm’s membership in Public Relations Organization International (PROI), and our community involvement.
The benefits of international connection and international trade are indisputable. The US Chamber of Commerce states, “America cannot have a growing economy or lift the wages and incomes of our citizens unless we continue to reach beyond our borders and sell products, produce, and services to the 95 percent of the world’s population that lives outside the United States.”
In fact, more than 40 million American jobs depend on international trade, which is critical to the success of various business sectors in the U.S. economy.
Tucker/Hall has worked internationally since the very beginning of the firm. Assignments span the globe, including work in Colombia, Mexico, and other areas of Latin America. These projects have included crisis management work, public affairs and issues management, as well as branding and marketing.
One recent client enlisted Tucker/Hall to make an important worldwide announcement that needed to be coordinated across multiple countries and time zones. We crafted news releases in five languages, coordinated with public relations specialists on the ground in countries around the world, and shared the announcement in all of the markets at the same time. The result was excellent media coverage in the client’s key markets, which included Hong Kong, London, and New York—just to name a few. The client was thrilled and couldn’t believe how smoothly the assignment went and the great results they received.
Mentioned above, Public Relations Organization International was founded in 1970, made up of independently owned PR firms across the globe. Over the years, PROI grew steadily and now has nearly 100 partners, with more than 7,000 employees, in more than 165 cities and 50 countries. Combined revenues of the group are more than $1 billion.
Members of PROI gather virtually and in person all year long to collaborate, share best practices and global insights. This helps each communications firm remain as a market trendsetter and deliver excellent results for their clients.

Tucker/Hall also recognizes that international growth and connection are critical to the future of our home state of Florida. That’s why Tucker/Hall executives volunteer to support various international efforts in our community—whether it’s assisting in attracting international flights at Tampa International Airport or serving as the local chapter President of the International Propeller Club which promotes maritime commerce all around the world.
If your company conducts business anywhere across the globe, Tucker/Hall can help. Whether it’s strategic communications, a crisis matter, issues management, or some sort of digital effort, our firm is well-positioned to help you succeed, no matter where your need is.
