Tamera Fall, PMP – President/Chief Technology Officer
Tamera Fall founded Fall Communications Inc. in March 1997, when she clearly saw the void of communication and marketing companies with knowledge and expertise in workforce development issues. A deep believer in the role that the workforce community plays in linking unemployed and underemployed job seekers with jobs, she saw a natural “fit” between her communications and technology expertise and workforce professionals seeking to market and deliver their services.
Under Tamera’s leadership and thoughtful guidance, her vision of a “new season in communications” has grown into a well-rounded, full-service marketing, communications and web site services company. With a diverse customer base, Fall Communications’ customers have come to rely on the expertise of staff partnering with them to implement highly creative and substantive marketing, communications and web site development/management strategies.
Prior to starting Fall Communications, Tamera Fall served as Public Information Officer and Special Assistant to the Kansas Deputy Secretary of Administration. She also worked on Capitol Hill as a Press Secretary to Congressman Pat Roberts (now a U.S. Senator), and as the Congressional Relations Director for the American Cotton Shippers Association, where she was responsible for monitoring legislation and educating members of Congress and their staffs about the cotton industry.
An energetic leader, with a commitment to meeting and exceeding expectations for Fall Communications’ family of clients, she is committed to providing quality services at an affordable price.
