Couple Combine 

Thomas and Clarene Mitchell launch TCM Communications LLC

Mequon, WI – With a goal of helping people tell their stories, Thomas and Clarene Mitchell have started their own public relations firm, TCM Communications LLC. They are a husband and wife team who collectively have fifty plus years of communications expertise. Thomas, a 1982 English and Composition graduate of Concordia University, has a long work history with a community newspaper, where he is the editor. Clarene, a 1993 Communications graduate of Cardinal Stritch University, has a wealth of print journalism, public and community relations experience from the nonprofit, government and healthcare sectors. Through their combined efforts with TCM, they are focused on helping their clients elevate their brands.

Clients are already singing their praises! “I so appreciate who you are, what you do and how you do it,” stated Karen A. Bowen, author and life coach (classes and one-on-one sessions). “You inspire me to market myself in a way that allows others to ‘get’ who I am and what I offer.” TCM created a business Facebook page for Bowen and provides her on-going social media coaching.

Providing services with a personal touch, TCM offers social media management, writing, editing, layout and design for publications, and more! Their work is driven by three core values: substance, integrity and timeliness. Together, they fill a diversity void in the local PR landscape by offering cultural intelligence that allow clients to penetrate a market and perspective that is often ignored.

Industry leaders are also applauding this new PR agency, “For entrepreneurs and small business people, thoughtful communications are essential.  That’s where TCM Communications can help,” stated Jeff Fleming, longtime Milwaukee communications professional. “The team at TCM combines experience, attention, and execution in ways that professionalizes brand development and public relations.  They can make a difference in the way key audiences view a company, a product, or an idea.  And, they can assist their clients in ways that lead to lasting success.”

Clarene is the managing partner of TCM. Thomas provides design and layout know-how based on client needs. The establishing of TCM is a natural progression for the couple. They have co-authored articles and held a community-wide event that celebrated strong marriages for five years. Their marriage event garnered significant media exposure, including being featured as a Positively Milwaukee segment (WTMJ 4) in 2015 and covered by Milwaukee Neighborhood News Service multiple years.

TCM is based in Mequon and offers branding services throughout the Greater Milwaukee Area, including Ozaukee, Washington and Waukesha counties. To learn more about TCM Communications’ services, go to their website and Facebook page. They can be contacted at 414-344-8111 and

Each year, Milwaukee Record selects individuals to share their thoughts on what they wish to see happen in Milwaukee in the new years. The feature is called, "Things Milwaukee needs to accomplish in 2018." Clarene was one of a dozen or so people contacted to contribute this year. Others included city leaders, politicians, musicians, artists and general community members. 

Clarene took the opportunity as a way to further conversations she started in the fall regarding an inappropriate fashion photo in Milwaukee Magazine.
