I am Merchant Professional Services
Tyler Merchant has been working in the PR and marketing field for over 8 years. Shortly following graduating from the University of Maryland in College Park with a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature, Tyler started his career at the EPS Industry Alliance; a trade association dedicated to the expanded polystyrene (commonly known as Styrofoam) industry. Within a few years, Tyler became the PR Manager for the organization, and was responsible for the challenging duty of positively representing a product that has a widely negative perception, and responding to situations where it was presented as detrimental. This provided valuable experience that allows Tyler to find a positive story where one might not be immediately apparent. While at EPS-IA, Tyler built a social media following from scratch to over 10,000 followers within a year, and was responsible for multiple article placements that presented a more balanced perspective on the use of EPS.
After EPS-IA, Tyler began working for Nevins & Associates, a Baltimore PR and marketing firm, where he worked for two years with prominent Baltimore businesses such as LifeBridge Health, Chimes International, Curio Wellness, and local author and activist Kevin Shird. During his time at Nevins, Tyler forged relationships with many Baltimore media personalities, and he maintains those relationships to facilitate regular media attention for his clients. Throughout his career, Tyler also regularly volunteered his time and expertise for local businesses and organizations, such as the Baltimore Rock Opera Society, and decided that going in to business for himself, with the express mission of promoting local growing businesses and organizations, was the next logical step.
