AUSTIN, TX — The Mach 1 Group (Mach 1), an award-winning, nationally-recognized public relations firm, has announced the addition of a new Account Executive, Haley Hutcherson — a talented policy specialist with expertise in legislative affairs, communications and new media.

“Following our most successful Texas Legislative Session to date, the Mach 1 Group is expanding our team with the addition of another experienced policy and communications specialist,” said Mach 1 Founder and CEO, Katherine McLane. “An important part of what makes Mach 1 unique is our ability to offer policy public relations services — a specialty that has helped dozens of organizations achieve their legislative and regulatory goals. Stepping right out of the Pink Dome, Haley brings a wealth of knowledge concerning the intricacies of state government and public opinion — helping Mach 1 to continue to offer the very best in communications counsel in Texas.”

As a legislative staffer for former Speaker of the Texas House of Representatives Tom Craddick (R-Midland), Hutcherson developed strong relationships with lobbyists and industry professionals and played an instrumental role in creating impactful press releases, newsletters and creative social media content.

Hutcherson now joins a veteran public relations team that has an impeccable record for designing and executing effective advocacy campaigns in Texas. Leading up to and during the 88th Texas Legislative Regular Session, Mach 1 facilitated over 310 in-state and 370 out-of-state and/or national media hits directly related to client causes. The firm successfully placed nearly 20 high-impact, in-depth editorial pieces in some of the best performing daily newspapers in the nation, including the Austin American-Statesman, San Antonio Express-News and the Dallas Morning News. These earned media hits equate to over $60 million in publicity value.
