The 2018 megahit heist film Ocean’s 8 was a feast for the eyes. The A-list female cast was dressed in tailored velvet suits, lavish gold gowns, and best of all, several pieces of eye-catching Cartier jewelry, which includes the famed Toussaint necklace, the object of the heist. The jewels featured in the film were the product of a robust partnership between the production and Cartier. And working behind this partnership was Pierce Media & Associates (PMA), a top-rated marketing and public relations consultancy specializing in popular culture.
Pierce Media & Associates is the force behind some of the most-awaited events in business and culture, including the TJ Maxx grand opening of two stores in New York City, the Google Pixel 4 product launch event, and the launch of Bai Supertea at the Batman vs. Superman world premiere.

Thomas E. Pierce and PMA have an exceptional track record in dealing between brands, film studios, and independent filmmakers. PMA has a deep understanding of the value of brand power and its influence on a film in today’s mediaverse.
Pierce Media & Associates has famously collaborated with filmmakers, studios, streamers, and brands in all categories from fashion, luxury, apparel, beauty, technology, and wine and spirits. PMA ensures that they can take full advantage of their partnerships for the benefit of both the brand and the filmmaker.

Thomas E. Pierce is the mastermind behind the consultancy. He founded PMA in July 2015 with the idea of building a diverse portfolio, working with powerful brands on creative marketing initiatives and special projects.
“I have a passion for films, art, wine, and travel and have built my consultancy tapping these pursuits. Brands want opportunities, but they are daunted by the process dealing with the studios and filmmakers—that’s where PMA comes in,” Pierce said.
Thomas boasts a successful track record in integrated marketing tactics, media strategy, brand experiences, influencer engagement strategy, sponsorships in coveted consumer markets, and cross-promotional brand partnerships in TV series and films.
Pierce Media offers a unique cadence, crossing mediums to help brands ultimately drive their culture through culture. Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the consultancy has made several adjustments for its work protocols.

Amid a time of uproar, economic regression, and new trends in marketing, Thomas E. Pierce focuses on the need to advertise, the right story to go with it, and the process of inserting oneself into content, leveraging its power.
