Founder & CEO
Tami is the Founding Partner of The McCarthy Group and its precursor, TMG Public Relations. She has been one of the leading creative forces in public relations since founding her own agency in 1996 after stints at Liz Claiborne, Strohl & Company, and Maury Rogoff Public Relations.
Tami’s driven by her passion for working closely with her clients to drive their business success. She believes that the role of a public relations professional is to build compelling and clear stories that demand attention for a client — and to tailor a communications strategy to fit the unique attributes of that story.
This exceptional focus on personal service has fueled TMG’s growth to an award-winning, full-service communications agency, providing public relations, brand positioning, social media outreach and marketing, entertainment production, talent representation and management, and event marketing services to clients in the consumer goods, financial services and media industries. And it has brought Tami significant personal recognition, including being named by Forbes.com as One of the Top 30 Women to follow on Twitter.
Tami lives in Bedford, NY, with her husband Dan and her three children. She has been active in numerous local charitable causes, including the Red Cross Ball, Kids in Crisis Annual Hoedown, among others.
“Every product, person or company has a story. We design and implement the best stories that get you noticed, heard and remembered.”
