Jonathan Bloom, the agency's CEO, said, "McGrath/Power maintains a broad base of client companies, each with varying levels of investor relations needs.

This has got to be the personnel announcement of the decade. I mean... DON KING IS A CULTURAL ICON!!
According to Wikipedia: "Don King is well-known for his eccentric behavior and outlandish style. His catchphrase is 'Only in America!'. He has a rather unusual hairstyle, and is fond of wearing loud, brightly colored clothing and lots of jewelry. King is famous for his grandiloquence and malapropisms, a trait captured well on The Simpsons where a King doppelganger protested the IRS's 'egregious miscarriagement of taxitude.'"
