Julie Mullen and Elizabeth Kelley Grace
Co-founders of The Buzz Agency
In 2009 amid the great recession, Julie Mullen and Elizabeth Kelley Grace were working from their dining room tables on their own public relations consulting practices when they decided to combine forces. The duo can remember going into the bank to open a business account together with just 500 dollars to invest.
Now with 13 years under their belts, the co-founders of The Buzz Agency run the largest public relations firm in Palm Beach County, according to the South Florida Business Journal’s 2022 “Book of Lists.”
One of the agency’s key attributes is that even as they’ve scaled to include seven team members, Mullen and Grace continue to oversee management of clients directly. “Liz and I are so hands-on with every client,” Mullen says. “We truly love what we do, and know our clients appreciate having the co-founders involved in servicing their PR needs.”
What brings Mullen and Grace joy is working one-on-one with their consumer-facing and business-to-business clients, providing media relations and community outreach for nonprofits and corporate clients. “Nothing makes me more excited than seeing positive news coverage about our clients,” Grace says. “We love being a part of moving the needle for them.”
