Agency Overview

Named "Boutique Agency of the Year" in 2010 among more than 120 agencies reviewed in the annual "PR Agency Report Card," Kohnstamm Communications has built a national reputation as a smart, nimble and strategic PR shop that consistently delivers big results. Kohnstamm is an independent marketing and PR firm comprising industry veterans whose approach is based on providing clients significant ROI, transparency, strategic insight and program satisfaction. The Holmes Report interviewed 80 agencies and 100 clients and industry experts in the production of the PR Agency Report Card.

Partnership with clients truly happens here.
