Pioneer Strategies celebrating 20 years in business

LELAND, N.C. – Pioneer Strategies, a public relations and marketing communication firm based in Leland, is celebrating 20 years in business this August. Brunswick County native Frank Williams founded the firm in August 2001 while living in Raleigh, and the firm was incorporated on September 11, 2001. Williams, a 1988 graduate of North Brunswick High School, moved Pioneer Strategies to Brunswick County at the end of 2008.

“It’s hard to believe we’ve been in business 20 years,” said Williams. “I’m grateful to our clients, referring partners, and strategic partners for helping us reach this milestone, and I’m excited about the foundation we have in place to kick off another successful 20 years.”

Pioneer Strategies’ first client was Concept Golf, which was owned by the late John Toepel, Jr., a former PGA Tour player. Since its inception, the firm has worked with hundreds of clients in a variety of industries, including organizations as far away as Georgia and Montana.

In the coming weeks Williams will be releasing a series of short videos reflecting on the firm’s history, philosophy, and plans for the future. Visit to view the videos as they are released and learn more about Pioneer Strategies’ history and expertise, which includes strategic communication planning, public relations counsel, media relations, website development and hosting, social media management, branding, direct mail, copywriting and speechwriting. The agency’s work has been recognized by the Hermes Creative Awards, the Sir Walter Raleigh Awards for Excellence in Communication and the MarCom Creative Awards.
