Saxum, an integrated marketing communications agency offering public relations, advertising and digital services, today announced it has opened an office in Houston and has hired agency veteran Teresa Henderson to serve as senior vice president of client development.
“Opening an office in Houston is a natural expansion to support our large energy practice as well as multiple Texas clients. The city remains entrepreneurial and an exciting place to do business despite shifting energy prices.” said Renzi Stone, Saxum chairman and CEO. “We believe now is the perfect time for companies in all areas of the energy sector to prioritize their strategic communications efforts that may have been delayed during the past couple year’s growth. Teresa’s deep expertise in Texas business will help us capitalize on that client development opportunity.”
Henderson comes to Saxum with more than 30 years of public relations and strategic communications experience. She previously served as senior vice president and general manager of Pierpont Communications in Dallas, where she directed several client relationships focused on entry into the oil and gas energy sector. Prior to that, she served as executive vice president and regional general manager for Edelman in Dallas and Austin.
“We are excited to have Teresa joining Saxum to lead our national business development efforts,” said Saxum President Debbie Schramm. “As an expert in integrated communications, she will be focused on identifying businesses and organizations that could benefit from Saxum’s strategic counsel and services. With her boundless energy, bold ideas and passion for driving results, Teresa will play a key role in the future of Saxum as we move into new markets nationwide.”
Henderson serves on the Leadership Dallas Alumni Board, the SPCA of Texas Board of Directors and is the cofounder of DFW Page 2, a consortium of senior communications strategists in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. She is a past member of the Board of Directors for the Dallas Regional Chamber, and a long-time member and former chair of the Chamber’s communications council.
