MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - In this installment of My Empire, a series where WMC5 profiles Mid-South women and their secrets to success, we introduce you to a woman who has made a career off solving crises and working in the shadows.
Meet Rene Malone.
Her role may seem suited for the TV show "Scandal," because if you're in a real scandal, she's the one to call.
"It's a passion more than a profession," Malone said.
Malone is one of the two co-founders behind Kingdom Quality Communications, a public relations, marketing, communications, and creative services firm.
Her clients range from school districts to small businesses to individuals in the public eye, and she said her job can be a real adrenaline rush.
"You get a call something's happened with one of your clients. The client needs help right away. They're saying they've got Channel 5 on the phone right now. 'They're asking me questions. What should I do?' You are the solution person and you have to figure out what they need to do," she explained.
