CLEVELAND, Ohio, May 16, 2019 (OTCQX: MACE) – Muse, a brand strategy and content marketing firm, has been named agency of record for Mace® Brand, the consumer arm of Mace Security International, Inc. and a global leader in personal safety products. The collaboration marks an exciting new chapter as the company reinvigorates its brand and marketing strategies.

As a female-led marketing firm, Muse offers special insight into the challenges that many women face in feeling safe, particularly in unfamiliar or scary situations. Nevertheless, the firm recognizes that Mace® Brand is right for all people in many different scenarios.

“Mace® Brand is committed to not only manufacturing the highest-quality products but to spark a broader movement of personal protection,” said Jackie Bebenroth, principal and founder of Muse. “We’re excited to work with Mace leadership to create inspiring and educational content that empowers people to lead safer, more confident lives.
