SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Dec 14, 2016) - Highwire PR, a modern communications agency designed for innovative companies and a 2016 PR Week agency of the year, today announced the opening of a new office in Boston to be led by Senior Vice President Ross Levanto. The agency also reported significant growth in its New York office.
Highwire's growth and expansion follows success representing innovators across many industries, including enterprise technology, IT security, digital health, consumer tech, financial technology and marketing and advertising tech. In less than a year, Highwire has more than doubled its New York headcount and earlier this year moved into 3,000 square feet of space to accommodate up to 30 team members.
"Our clients benefit from insight contributed by PR talent from multiple geographies, including San Francisco, New York, Chicago, and now, Boston," said Kathleen Gratehouse, Highwire principal. "Highwire has long driven PR programs for companies in the northeast and with our east-coast leadership in place, the Highwire approach is even more attractive to companies across technology sectors."
Previously the Boston Technology Practice Lead at MSLGROUP, Levanto brings to Highwire nearly 20 years of experience in B2B technology PR, including innovative work at the intersection of media relations and content marketing.
"Highwire fills a strong need on the east coast for fresh PR perspective by merging proven Silicon Valley PR tactics with on-the-ground expertise in Boston and New York," said Levanto. "The firm offers a differentiated, proven PR service offering that connects results to metrics that matter for our clients -- and we move at a pace that is needed in today's market."
Boston has long served as a cradle for innovation. Easy access to capital combined with a steady stream of innovations from the area's colleges and universities has resulted in numerous important technology advancements, and an early 2016 Bloomberg ranking of the most innovative states placed Massachusetts first, with California a very close second.
