Agency Statement:

Public Communications Inc. provides strategic counsel to clients, whether we're dealing with the most serious and complex issue, a national awareness campaign or the splashiest of events - and we've been doing so for more than 50 years.

Our job is to safeguard reputations and recommend the right way for clients to communicate so what they have to say is heard and influences their audiences. We are an integrated communications firm, large enough to provide all the communications services a client might require but small enough that the firm's officers are directly involved, hands-on, in each client's program.

PCI is a founding partner of the WORLDCOM Public Relations Group, the world's leading partnership of independently owned public relations counseling firms with more offices in more cities and countries than any multinational firm.

We have a strong concentration of business in healthcare, conservation/environment, education, culture and destinations, and business clients from tech to non-profits, entrepreneurs to advocacy groups.

Our clients trust us and stay with us. Our business has grown primarily through referrals and word of mouth. Most of our clients have been with us five years or more; 15 and 20+ year relationships are common (and valued).

Our size and the depth of our staff enable us to manage the most sophisticated assignments while allowing us to move quickly, be flexible and change course when it makes sense.

Jill Allread, CEO; Pamela Oettel, CFO & COO; Craig Pugh, pres.; Mary Erangey, Wendi Koziol, Amy Ritter Cowen, Leigh Wagner, sr. VPs; Ruth Mugalian, Beth Schlesinger, Sara Conley, Sharon Dewar, VPs
