Cooksey Communications, a Dallas/Fort Worth-based strategic communications consulting firm, who works to promote the McCuistion program and the Foundation for Responsible Television, recently celebrated its 15 year anniversary. Founded by President Gail Cooksey in 1994, Cooksey Communications is now ranked the 9th-largest firm in the Dallas/Fort Worth region.
In recognition of the anniversary, Councilman Rick Stopfer of Irving presented a proclamation on behalf of the City of Irving’s Office of the Mayor, which declared Thursday, September 17 as “Cooksey Communications Day.” To celebrate 15 years in business, Cooksey Communications announced that the firm made a donation of $5,000 to the SPCA of Texas, for which Gail Cooksey serves as a member of the board of directors.
“I am thrilled to have achieved this milestone,” said Gail Cooksey. “None of this would be possible without the support of our wonderful and loyal clients and employees. I am grateful to everyone who has made our first 15 years so successful.” Over the last 15 years, Cooksey Communications has served and strengthened the local, regional and statewide business community as the strategic communications partner for hundreds of prestigious companies and organizations.
Niki McCuistion who attended the festivities said, “We are thrilled to have their assistance. Their client roster reads like Who’s Who. Lucky us for all they do, they are generous to a fault. Congratulations Gail and team. We wish you at least another 15 years plus of success.”
