Today, Rosica Places Strong Emphasis on Digital Media and Technology

Rosica Communications was founded in 1980, the year that CNN first aired, and its evolution since has secured its position amongst the top 125 largest independent PR agencies in the U.S., out of more than 12,000 PR firms nationwide.

Wally Amos (The Famous Amos Cookie Company) was the agency’s first client and Literacy Volunteers of America (LVA) became its second, spawning an agency focus on food and beverage and nonprofit PR. In 1979, agency co-founder John Rosica devised what he called a “cause marketing” initiative by partnering Famous Amos with LVA. Amos, a high school dropout, credited reading with his entrepreneurial success. Soon after, the Rosica agency brought the two organizations together and achieved national awareness for both brands through media events in dozens of markets across the country and other grassroots PR activities. This marketing success story has been taught in university classrooms for more than three decades, cementing Rosica’s pioneering role in cause marketing. In 2012, agency president Chris Rosica published The Business of Cause Marketing, his second book after The Authentic Brand.

Today the independent PR/marketing communications firm serves a wide range of clients in such industries as healthcare, consumer packaged goods, food and beverage, nonprofit, professional services, education, and now, technology, due to its recent joint venture with Feintuch Communications, a New York City-based tech PR firm. Rosica delivers award-winning services that include media relations, thought leadership, social media, search engine optimization (SEO), online advertising (SEM), online reputation management (ORM), media training, investor relations, tradeshow marketing, analyst relations and content marketing to a B2B and B2C clientele. Unlike many PR firms that are losing touch with securing earned media, Rosica demonstrates extraordinary prowess in this area, effectively leveraging it to bolster thought leadership, online reputation, social content and SEO.

In 2008, Chris Rosica cofounded Interact Marketing, an online marketing firm. This solidified the agency’s ability to fuse traditional and digital PR and marketing. Rosica’s expertise in content development and syndication has also magnified client results and the ways they tell their stories and manage perception.
