BOSTON, MA and CHICAGO, IL and SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - October 5, 2009) - Tier One Partners, LLC, a full-service public relations agency that offers "all senior talent, all the time," today announced the addition of three new clients to its roster: Continuum, a global innovation and design consultancy; Great Books Foundation, an independent non-profit educational organization that empowers readers to become more reflective and engaged thinkers; and Koko FitClub, a technology company that is reinventing the fitness franchise business.

"Continuum is experiencing tremendous growth both domestically and abroad and we were looking for a communications partner that would help us strategically navigate through this next phase of our development while continuing to build our brand," said Amy Quigley, vice president of marketing at Continuum. "Tier One's 'All senior talent, all the time,' model made them the clear choice as our PR partner.
