Mid-Atlantic-based public relations firm Weiss PR, Inc. experienced a nearly 20% year-over-year growth in revenues in 2015. This was on top of a 37% growth the previous year.
“We continue to capitalize on technology companies that need to cut through industry noise and raise awareness of their solutions through effective media and influencer relations and social media management,” said Ray Weiss, president and co-founder of Weiss PR. “In addition, we’ve been able to expand our work with clients headquartered in New Zealand, where existing relationships have led to new engagements with companies seeking to break into the U.S. market.”
Building on its relationship with New Zealand-based client Wynyard Group, Weiss PR became the agency of record for New Zealand’s Promapp Solutions, a process management software company, and provided media training for Gallagher Group, which develops animal management, security, fuel systems, and contract manufacturing solutions.
The firm also was selected to handle public relations for American Technology Services, a leading provider of comprehensive IT and web design and development services, based in Fairfax, VA.
Beyond its new technology clients, Weiss PR was named to provide media relations and social media support for AgentHero, a national network of professional real estate agents, all of whom are veterans or military spouses; and Talos Solutions, which provides customized technical, engineering, and scientific staffing augmentation to companies around the world. The firm also handled projects for a number of companies – including Transdev and Patient First – during the past year.
Adding to its architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) practice, Weiss PR handled ongoing project work for Stormwater Maintenance & Consulting and expanded the existing scope of work for the nationally renowned traffic engineering and transportation planning firm, The Traffic Group.
The firm also expanded its marketing services with strategic partner, O’Dell Graphic Solutions, as client demand for web design, SEO, graphics, and advertising grew.
Over the past few years, Weiss PR has earned a place on the Baltimore Business Journal’s list of Fastest Growing Private Companies, as well as a Top 20 ranking of PR firms in the D.C. region by PR trade publication O’Dwyer’s. The firm has also won several PR World Awards for its media relations and social media campaigns.
