Coppell, Texas, May 16, 2014 – Woodard Furniture, manufacturer of quality wrought iron, aluminum, and all season wicker outdoor furniture and accessories, has selected home furnishings specialists The Media Matters, Inc. as its public relations agency of record. As such, The Media Matters will develop and implement a comprehensive public relations and communications strategy that bolsters Woodard’s short-and long-term marketing initiatives. Woodard chose the Lexington, NC-based firm because of its balanced offerings in both traditional and new media and its respected relationships with consumer-facing media.

“One of our strategic goals at Woodard is to increase our visibility and positioning with consumers,” stated Bill Herren, creative director. “Consumer acceptance is a conclusive retail support mechanism, and we believe our partnership with The Media Matters will assist in that endeavor. Their expertise in all facets of marketing communications with special emphasis in brand strategy and public relations will be very beneficial to us as we continue to build awareness and grow as an industry leader.” 

“Woodard is a gem—they have a clear vision of where they want to go, they are committed to using the best tools and tactics to get there, and their products are beautifully crafted and executed,” said Kathy D.
