Prosek’s forthcoming Beantown outpost, which the agency plans to open in February, will be located in Boston’s North End neighborhood and will staff eight employees on a full time basis.

It will be led by vice president Bea Broderick.

“Boston’s high concentration of technology, financial and professional services firms made it a natural place for us to establish a physical presence,” Broderick told O’Dwyer’s. “As a talent rich market, there’s also a tremendous opportunity for us to grow our experienced team and service clients throughout the region.”

New York-based Prosek, which specializes in financial, healthcare and professional services PR, maintains additional offices in London, Los Angeles and Fairfield, CT.
