We’re excited to watch our content and reach flourish under their guidance.”

“We’re thrilled to be activating what is an extensive brief from Bernhard and Company,” commented Sam Elder, Director at GMS. “Through our recent discussions with them, myself and the wider team at GMS have been hugely impressed by the company’s commitment to providing exceptional products and services, but also their vow to continuously improve when it comes to sustainability, conservation and its relationship to golf course and turf maintenance.
“As undisputed pioneers and leaders in their field, we feel they’re a great fit with our other clients and we’re eager to bring their stories to life alongside their experienced team.”
The partnership, effective January 1, 2021, sees GMS take on the role of global marketing agency for Bernhard and Company, with an emphasis on PR and content production services.
