Columbia, SC – October 1, 2013 – Push Digital founder and CEO Wesley Donehue today announced the launch of Push Advocacy, a sister company of Push Digital that will focus on public and government affairs.

“Push Digital has established a brand as a national leader in digital campaigns, having rapidly grown its footprint from the Southeast to coast to coast,” Rentiers said. “Our goal is to deliver results in the advocacy arena that Push has become known for in the digital arena by blending our team’s expertise in government, politics and digital campaigns at all levels of government. The Push Advocacy team is unmatched in its experience in taking our clients’ issues from idea to reality.”

This division of our business is poised to grow rapidly, and will have the capacity to work hand in hand with our digital team on a number of projects. It’s a natural fit, and is one of a number of business expansions we plan to announce over the course of the next year.
