CHICAGO -- March 19, 2013

Mac Strategies Group, a fifteen-time award winning public affairs and public
relations firm with offices in Chicago and Springfield, is pleased to announce
the addition of Matt Butterfield as Vice President of Public and Media
Relations. The addition of Butterfield follows the January announcement of
Mayor Rahm Emanuel's former political strategist Tom Bowen as Senior Advisor
to the firm; Mac Strategies Group is quickly becoming one of Chicago’s top
public affairs firms.

Butterfield previously spent fifteen years managing the news assignment desk
at Fox Chicago. He was the recipient of journalism’s prestigious Peabody Award
in 2010 for his work at Fox and has been awarded two regional Emmy awards for
comprehensive coverage of major news events. Most recently, Butterfield served
as Communications Director for Illinois State Treasurer Dan Rutherford
demonstrating success building a highly recognizable brand for an often
overlooked constitutional office.

“We see great opportunity for growth in our agency with Matt now on board. His
knowledge of strategic, successful media campaigns will play an important role
in meeting the objectives of our clients,” said Ryan McLaughlin, President of
Mac Strategies Group. “He will develop messaging plans and strategies to gain
exposure and media coverage for our clients. Matt has spent many years
building relationships and trust with Illinois’ various media outlets – his
familiarity and expertise of the news process will prove to be extremely
beneficial for those we serve.”

“It’s exciting for me to see the number of clients adding value to their
organizations because of their relationship with the Mac Strategies Group,”
said Butterfield. “My passion is uncovering stories that are interesting to
tell and then finding an audience who will pay attention. My plan is to listen
carefully to the strategic goals of clients, determine what is thought
provoking about their story, help shape their message and execute effective
media campaigns.”

Mac Strategies Group was founded in 2008 by veteran political and
communications operative Ryan McLaughlin and has emerged as one of the most
successful Chicago-based firms in executing public relations and public
affairs campaigns for clients at the state and federal levels. Mac Strategies
Group represents a myriad of clients including the Illinois Retail Merchants
Association (IRMA), Illinois Manufacturers’ Association (IMA), Satellite
Broadcasting and Communications Association (SBCA), Wrigleyville Rooftops
Association, Chemical Industry Council of Illinois (CICI), Pharmacy Choice and
Access Now (PCAN) and the Unlock Our Jobs coalition. The firm has also waged
prominent campaigns on behalf of the Illinois Coalition to Abolish the Death
Penalty (ICADP), Sears Holdings Corporation, and 7-Eleven among others.
