We are experienced, senior-level PR professionals only, which assures our clients the top quality expertise and results they expect. It also means we can hit the ground running immediately on projects for our clients, which ultimately saves them time and expense.
San Diego, CA (Vocus) January 29, 2009
Founders Denise Herich and Michelle Francis Munroe today announced the launch of Peak3 Communications LLC, a national public relations firm headquartered in San Diego and with offices in Chicago. The firm specializes in strategic planning, messaging and branding, media relations, product promotion, and crisis communications for businesses ranging from startups to the Fortune 500.
"Peak3 Communications is a different kind of PR firm," says Herich. "We are experienced, senior-level PR professionals only, which assures our clients the top quality expertise and results they expect. It also means we can hit the ground running immediately on projects for our clients, which ultimately saves them time and expense."
Prior to co-founding Peak3, Herich was a practice leader at a mid-sized San Diego public relations agency. Before her move to San Diego, Herich was a vice president at the Washington, DC office of Hill & Knowlton, one of the top international PR firms in the world. In her more than 20 years of marketing and public relations experience, Herich has counseled some of America's largest healthcare, technology and consumer goods innovators, directing an impressive array of complex marketing and public relations services for each client.
The founders say that their refusal to apply cookie-cutter PR strategies to their clients' communications challenges helps them to stand out from other firms as well.
"Peak3's goal is to build brands, which requires the ability to bring intelligent strategy, understanding of the marketplace and original thinking to the table prior to the start of a communications campaign," says Munroe. "This means we don't focus solely on securing media coverage for clients that won't positively impact their bottom lines or help build their brands. Peak3 focuses on building awareness through the right outlets - including the media, the community, and other key opinion leaders - in order for our clients to realize their strategic goals."
Prior to co-founding Peak3, Munroe led public and community relations efforts for two top ranked hotels in the Caribbean, served as a spokesperson and a director of communications and government relations within a leading multi-billion dollar healthcare system in Chicago and was as a practice leader at a mid-sized PR firm in San Diego. Munroe also owned and operated her own communications firm, providing senior-level counsel and real-world strategies to a varied group of clients.
Peak3 is further differentiated by its strong and varied experience in multicultural communications and by the founders' ability to understand a target market and communicate in a culturally relevant and meaningful way. Their talents for writing compelling bylined articles, brochures, news copy, executive and annual reports help them to further stand out from the crowd. Examples of multicultural campaigns, as well as downloadable articles published by the founders, can be found on the firm's web site.
Since Peak3's inception, clients such as The Flagship Group (Developer of Punta Brava - home to Tiger Woods' first oceanfront golf course), Sorrento Mesa Printing, Vermillion Properties and SmartDraw.com have relied on the firm's expertise to generate awareness and instill confidence in their brands, even in the current economic climate.
"Peak3 is our PR firm because they deliver results," says Paul Stannard, CEO of
SmartDraw.com, maker of SmartDraw, the software that helps businesses work smarter by communicating visually. "From day one, they were able to add real value to our marketing team. The ideas, enthusiasm, strong writing, and most of all, the results that we derive from the relationship cannot be understated. I'm quite happy they're our firm of record."
