MAY52, inc.
Leave the mayhem behind


Passion. Experience. Diligence.

Our company, May52 inc., was started by Tom May in 2012 with a focus on offering medium to small businesses and organizations sound advertising advice and strategy, more specifically in the digital space. 


Thomas E. May

I've worked in media for over 40 years and to paraphrase the opening line from Charles Dicken's Tale of Two Cities, "It is the best of times, it is the worst of times". What do I mean by that? It's the best of times because marketing and advertising opportunities are exploding with the growth of the internet and digital advertising. Businesses have many more measurable and effective methods for their marketing and promotional efforts. However, with all of these choices, mistakes can be made and dollars wasted, which is why I say that it may also be the worst of times for businesses if they can't differentiate the good from the bad when they make advertising decisions.

I bring more than 25 years’ experience in strategic communications and public relations to our company.  I've worked in both the private and public sector, including work for a sitting governor, the Seattle City Council, the Washington State Bar Association and I'm currently  the Director of Public Relations and Strategic Communications for a large health organization. My full time job keeps me busy but when a client needs communications advice, I'm here to help.
