TS Expands with the Addition of Bria Balliet
As demand for its services continues to grow, Tripepi Smith has expanded its team with the addition of Bria Balliet, the firm’s newest Business Analyst. Bria’s role will include project support and management for several clients, as well as graphic design support, photography and writing. With the addition of Bria, Tripepi Smith now has 12 employees and several contractors rounding out the team.
“I’m thrilled to be starting this journey with Tripepi Smith,” Bria said. “The firm has a solid reputation in the public affairs field, and everyone on the team is incredibly talented and passionate about their work. Also, the firm’s client base is diverse and growing quickly. I feel very fortunate to be a part of this team.”
Bria is an alumna of UC San Diego, where she earned her Bachelor of Arts in Communications and wrote for several on-campus publications. Following college, she worked as an editorial assistant at a publishing firm that produced custom magazines for cities like Newport Beach and private clients such as Preferred Hotels and Resorts. In her most recent role, Bria worked in marketing at the university level, serving as a senior writer and communications specialist for UC Irvine. There, she was responsible for writing and editing content across all of the school’s platforms, as well as event photography and graphic design, a combination of skills that Tripepi Smith president Ryder Todd Smith believes will be an asset to the team.
“Bria brings a skill set that is a great fit for our firm and the needs of our clients,” said Ryder. “Her writing, design and photography experience, as well as her background in marketing and communications, make her a complete storyteller. We are working aggressively to bring on quality talent to match the growth we are experiencing in the market and will have more to announce soon.”
