DAVIES EXPANDS TO EAST COAST, ADDS NEW DIRECTOR TO REAL ESTATE PRACTICE Joshua Boisvert, Esq., Hired to Head Real Estate Practice in New Washington, D.C. Office of Award-Winning Public Affairs Agency SANTA BARBARA – (May 29, 2007) – DAVIES, a California-based public affairs firm with specialized practices in Real Estate, Healthcare, and Energy & Natural Resources, today announced the expansion of the agency with the opening of a Washington, D.C. office and the hiring of Joshua Boisvert, Esq. as Director of the Real Estate Practice in that office. The office is located at 325 Pennsylvania Avenue SE. The East Coast expansion comes as part of the record growth the company has seen during the past five years. Since 2002, the firm has climbed into the Top 30 PR firms nationally with a 230% increase in gross revenue and a nationwide client base. This year, the firm was awarded both Agency of the Year and Best Agency to Work For by The Holmes Report. “Our expansion to the East Coast establishes DAVIES as a truly national firm with a business plan for continued growth and development throughout the nation,” said John Davies, chairman and chief executive officer of DAVIES. “This progress into a new part of the country allows us to provide exceptional service and local knowledge to our growing client base, which now extends to 33 states.” Included in this growth is the addition of Joshua Boisvert, Esq. to head the new office in the role of Director. Boisvert is an attorney by training, but has spent the greater part of his career working as an independent grassroots political consultant and direct mail specialist for clients including Wal-Mart through his firm Main Street Strategies. He also has consulted on statewide political campaigns across the country. In 2004, Joshua temporarily stepped away from Main Street Strategies to become a senior associate in a national political consulting firm where he focused on formulating fundraising strategies and developing complex budgets for major political campaigns. The next year, he resurrected Main Street Strategies and began working solely for corporate clients, specializing in grassroots strategies, issues management, crisis communications, and grassroots programs for local land use issues. “Joshua’s political background and knowledge of the marketplace are the perfect compliment to the DAVIES highly targeted grassroots public affairs approach,” Davies added. “We are certain that his relentless pursuit of quality will allow DAVIES to better service current East Coast clients and help develop our business in that area.” DAVIES ranks among the fastest growing agencies in the United States with specialty practice areas in Real Estate, Healthcare, and Energy & Natural Resources. DAVIES utilizes highly-targeted grassroots and communication programs to help their clients successfully manage defining, high stakes issues. With offices in Santa Barbara, Sacramento, Los Angeles and Washington, D.C., DAVIES employs nearly 50 professionals and is ranked among the top public affairs agencies in the United States by O’Dwyers, The Holmes Report, and PR Week.
