For the late Ev Clay, sports was a passion. After graduating from the University of Florida in the early 1930s, he went to work for The Miami Herald and became the youngest sports editor. A lifelong dream had come true.
But while he lived and breathed “printer's ink,” he realized it would take more than that salary to support his young family. With great reluctance, he approached John S. Knight, then publisher of The Miami Herald, about his idea of starting the area's first public relations firm.
In 1940, Everett A. Clay decided to strike out on his own.
His first accounts included Hialeah Race Course, W.D. Pawley's Miami Transit Company, and the Orange Bowl game. He provided external public relations counsel for Miami’s top corporations including specialties in finance, real estate, transportation, public policy issues, health care, and professional services.
The principles of business that Ev Clay established have become the bedrock of the firm. They are: not being the biggest but the best; teamwork, truth, trust, and loyalty; limiting accounts to one per industry; no conflicts of interest; and nurturing creativity.
