Leading Music Industry Publicity Firm Team Clermont Welcomes Veteran Publicist Margo Drgos
(Athens, Georgia) - January 19, 2018 - Team Clermont, a leading music and technology public relations firm welcomes publicist, Margo Drgos, one of the music industry’s most respected public relations experts. The new relationship offers advantages to both parties. For Drgos (pronounced ‘dro´gus’), it will offer the support of Team Clermont’s vast resources, extensive contacts, and administrative infrastructure. Team Clermont in turn will benefit from the experience and varied expertise Drgos has accumulated throughout her many years of public relations, branding and marketing practice. Margo will continue to represent her personal clientele under the company umbrella and Team Clermont will maintain its company structure of “being a home to talented independent publicists worldwide."
“As Team Clermont celebrates our 20th year in operation, we are delighted to welcome Margo as a new colleague and publicity partner,” says Nelson Wells, President and co-founder of Team Clermont. “Margo’s professionalism and devotion to her clients, as well as her reputation as one of the premier publicists in the business, will create an ideal synergy when it comes to creating branding opportunities and public relations strategies that are second to none. Suffice to say, we are all excited that Margo has agreed to join our team as we all move forward toward the future and our next 20 years.”
“I’m thrilled to have a new home that allows me to focus on my areas of expertise and take advantage of the resources, skills, and stellar reputation that Bill, Nelson, and Team Clermont have always had. My first music job was in college radio, which is where Team Clermont began 20 years ago. So to me, Team Clermont’s brand is synonymous with breaking quality independent music,” comments Drgos. “After working as a sole proprietor and independent agent for the past 10+ years, I look forward to building this new relationship with a company that has not only enthusiastically embraced me, but also expressed its eagerness to offer its support of our ongoing endeavors.
Margo founded Zerbert Music & Lifestyle, a publicity, branded content, and consulting firm for both the music and lifestyle sectors in 2012. She built her career working interdependently with industry veterans such as Versa Manos (the first and youngest appointed female executive at A&M London representing artists like The Clash, The Go Go’s, and Tupac Shakur) and Nadine Gelineau (Tool, Brian Jonestown Massacre, The Killers) while building her own eclectic roster of developing music and lifestyle brands.
Recent clients and campaigns include Canada’s largest independent record label Light Organ Records and their garage rock quartet JPNSGRLS, aspiring Midwest songwriters Connor Leimer and Royal Holland, Trip-Rock artist and producer Austin Galante, Best of Kashmir clothing line, and the California National Party, a socio-political grassroots movement that formed in the Bay Area in 2014.
Team Clermont specializes in providing public relations and radio promotion that garners their clients maximum exposure, publicity and branding opportunities. The company emphasizes an individual, one on one focus on their artists, giving added attention to detail while garnering results that advance their clients’ careers. Previous projects have included successful efforts on behalf of such artists as Norah Jones, Sigur Ros, R.E.M., Postal Service, M83, Arctic Monkeys, Boogarins and Sufjan Stevens, as well as most major labels and such leading independent labels as Mute, Domino, and Dead Oceans.
