You Bring the Passion. We’ll Supply the Opportunities.

Every innovation starts with a big idea, but it is how you tell its story that makes an impact. That’s where we come in. As a global communications agency, we use earned, paid and owned mediums to help our clients create positive results and achieve their business goals.

People first — that’s how we see it, and that’s probably why we have been listed as a top place to work by PR News. The two women who started this company in 1983 still own and run it. Being independent means that we answer only to our clients, employees and our collective conscience. Instead of investing our time and efforts in pleasing shareholders, we invest in the people we know who are bringing innovative ideas to life. When you work here, you will find compelling work, global partnerships, worthwhile professional development, outstanding benefits and the opportunity to make a difference. 

We value those who share our passion and belief in the power of change, discovery and innovation. We invest in our future by creating a fun workplace full of creative, skilled, curious and enthusiastic people. We are seeking brilliant storytellers, stewards of bold ideas and voices of innovation. If that sounds like you, we want you here.
