The Warren Group Launches as Next Evolution of Faiss Foley Warren

Las Vegas, Nev. (Sept. 2020) --- Melissa Warren, managing partner of Faiss Foley Warren (FFW) public relations, a firm founded 22 years ago in Las Vegas, announces the firm’s next evolution with the launch of The Warren Group. The Warren Group will house the firm’s practice encompassing public relations, social media, community relations and messaging.  

Warren recently acquired full ownership of the LLC under which both FFW and The Warren Group operate. She will continue to affiliate with her longtime partner, Linda Faiss, on public relations matters, while Helen Foley has launched Foley Public Affairs, a government affairs firm.

Faiss, one of the industry’s most revered and respected public relations practitioners with a decades-long tenure advising some of the community’s most prominent companies and agencies, recently returned to the Reno/Tahoe area to be closer to family as she begins her “retirement.” She is now actively involved in several Reno area organizations, including the Reno chapter of the Nevada International Women’s Forum, Nevada Humanities Board and Nevadans for the Common Good.

Foley, a former Nevada State Senator and longtime government affairs consultant, continues to work with T-Mobile, RTC of Southern Nevada, Delta Dental, Northern Nevada developer Lance Gilman, NV Marriage and Family Therapists, and FirstMed Health and Wellness Centers, a federally qualified health center with three locations valley wide.  

Joining Warren at The Warren Group are former FFW employees McKinzie Cogswell, Sr. Account Executive; Amy E.S. Maier, Sr. Account Executive; Lisa Robinson, Sr. Account Executive; Cherryl Kaopua, Account Executive; Marsha MacEachern Tempesta, Social Media Director; Lokelani Higa, Social Media Manager; and Karen Wofford, Marketing Specialist.

The Warren’s Group client roster includes longtime clients The Howard Hughes Corporation/Summerlin/Downtown Summerlin/Las Vegas Ballpark, Cox Communications, Silver State Health Insurance Exchange/Nevada Health Link, Inspirada, the city of Las Vegas, Downtown Vegas Alliance, DKLV portfolio of high-rise towers including Juhl and One Las Vegas, Touro University Nevada, Plaza Hotel & Casino, and others. The firm also represents a host of nonprofits including Rape Crisis Center, The Shade Tree, Nevada Community Foundation, the Mayor’s Fund for Las Vegas LIFE, Communities In Schools of Nevada, Silver State Equality, Make-A-Wish® Southern Nevada and Delivering with Dignity.
