The Andrews Agency, a full service public relations, marketing and event management firm, has named Jena Locke Thomas as president and partner. Founding partner Susan Andrews Thompson will remain involved in the agency’s operations as chief executive officer.

Formerly vice president at The Andrews Agency, Thomas’ work includes public relations and strategic marketing efforts for restaurant, development and non-profit clients. Prior to joining The Andrews Agency in 2013, Thomas spent more than four years as a consultant at Hall Strategies with expertise in media relations, special events and social media. Thomas is a Belmont University graduate with a degree in public relations, and she supplemented her courses with internships at the Onion in Los Angeles and Katcher Vaughn & Bailey Public Relations.

"Throughout the 27-year history of The Andrews Agency, our philosophy as an agency has been to under commit and over deliver, and Jena embodies that principle," said Susan Andrews Thompson. "I’m thrilled for Jena to join me as a partner with her tremendous knowledge and know-how, as our team continues to do great work for the clients we serve."

Outside the office, Thomas serves on Belmont University’s Public Relations Department Advisory Board and YWCA of Nashville and Middle Tennessee Junior Board Committee, and she is a founding member of both the Nashville Public Library Foundation’s Next Chapter Society and the Friends of the Food Bank Steering Committee for Second Harvest Food Bank. In 2015, she was named as one of Nashville’s Top 30 Under 30 for her professional and philanthropic accomplishments and was recently a finalist for the Nashville Emerging Leaders Award in the Public Relations category.

The Andrews Agency serves a wide-roster of clients throughout the State of Tennessee, including food and beverage clients such as Dunkin’ Donuts, Chef’s Market and Five Points Pizza, luxury brands including Woodhouse Day Spa and The Lipman Group | Sotheby’s International Realty, signature events including Chukkers for Charity, Tennessee Beer and Wine Festival and Nashville Home + Remodeling Expo, development organizations and builders including Tennessee Economic Partnership, Messer Construction and The Jones Company, non-profit organizations such as Nashville Shakespeare Festival and CASA of Williamson County, and heritage tourism attractions such as Battle of Franklin Trust, The Lotz House and James K. Polk Ancestral Home.
