DALLAS – Sept. 29, 2022 –

North Texas-based strategic communications firm Cooksey Communications recently added Collin Yoxall to its team as a senior account executive in its distinguished Public Sector Practice Group. Yoxall’s work at Cooksey focuses on evaluating communication structures and practices, developing and executing media relations strategies, developing and executing high-impact marketing programs, and facilitating stakeholder engagement on behalf of governmental entities, higher education institutions and economic development organizations.

“Collin’s strong background in conducting extensive research for local, state and federal campaigns combined with his recent communications and media relations experience in higher education, along with his past work at Cooksey, will be vital to supporting the growth of our Public Sector Practice,” said Colby Walton, chairman and CEO of Cooksey Communications. “We’re excited to have Collin back on the team after his time in higher education, and we’re confident he will be a valuable asset to our public sector clients.”

Before rejoining Cooksey, Yoxall gained experience conducting research and facilitating communications for all three levels of electoral campaigns. He also developed client service and copywriting skills as a part-time employee for Cooksey in 2019-20 while completing his master’s degree in strategic communications at Texas Christian University (TCU). His experience in public educational institutions includes serving as a communications specialist at The University of Texas at Arlington, and most recently in a marketing and communications role at TCU’s AddRan College of Liberal Arts, where he managed and created content for social media, developed relationships with key local media outlets and assisted in faculty expert development.

In addition to his master’s degree, Yoxall also completed his bachelor’s degree at TCU, where he majored in political science with an international relations emphasis. He is a member of the Fort Worth chapter of the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA).
