Trimmel Gomes hangs out his own shingle, launches Gomes Media Strategies

in Uncategorized by

Trimmel Gomes says he has one simple goal for his new company: help people tell their stories in a rapidly evolving media landscape.  

Gomes Media Strategies – described as a new innovative enterprise by the veteran communicator — will support companies and organizations in all things news, through the convergence of conventional, social and hybrid media.

“With stories breaking on non-traditional media like Twitter, Facebook and even YouTube,” Gomes explains in a release, “the sooner we embrace how we share news and information, the sooner we’ll all be ready for the media innovations of the future.”

“More than a decade in news and reporting, including managing the oldest public radio network in the United States, means clients will benefit from the type of experience that really matters,” he added.

Providing clients a comprehensive first-hand news experience, Gomes Media Strategies will aim to offer an ideal combination of skills behind the independent marketing, education and social media agency.

As a former award-winning statewide news director of Florida Public Radio, Gomes also performed a variety of roles at National Public Radio, PBS and the New York Times. His most recent position was that of public affairs and news executive for the Tallahassee-based Sachs Media Group.

“Trimmel Gomes has established himself as a leader in understanding the variety of ways people communicate in the modern world, and Gomes Media Strategies will put that expertise to work for its clients,” said Ron Sachs, President and CEO of Sachs Media Group. “We expect to collaborate with Trimmel on many projects.”

Not content with keeping still, the newly-launched Gomes Media Strategies has already began cultivating the marketing and social media strategies for companies such as Fort Lauderdale-based CTI Group Worldwide Services, a global maritime employment agency with offices in China, Thailand, Burma, Vietnam, the Philippines and Indonesia.
