-- Energy efficiency, automotive, career management and luxury goods brands join the agency --

PHILADELPHIA, September 21, 2011Brownstein Group (BG) announces the addition of several new consumer clients to its public relations and social media portfolio. As more brands seek to harness the power of earned media, real-time interactions and user-generated content, public relations and social media integration has become an essential component to consumer engagement. Combining a strong foundation of media relations professionals with its early investment in social media capabilities, BG is poised to lead the PR and social media strategies for several regional consumer brands.

“Public relations and social media are the fastest-growing disciplines within our agency,” said Marc Brownstein, President and CEO. “In a marketplace where journalists and consumers alike have significant influence on a brand’s reputation, our clients are increasingly turning to us to protect and strengthen their brand’s equity – and integrating public relations and social media is the most effective approach. Embracing both traditional and social media platforms is essential today – and given our proven success in engaging consumers on- and off-line, we have attracted several forward-thinking brands.”

  • TireVan, the largest and fastest-growing tire sales and mobile installation business in the United States, has engaged BG to launch its brand in the Philadelphia market. Through a strategic media relations campaign, BG will help boost consumer awareness and growth of this company, the first of its kind in the local region.
  • Wayne, Pa.-based Kelleher Associates, LLC contracted with the BG public relations team to improve its brand recognition and broaden exposure and awareness of its career and executive coaching services within the regional business and human resources community.
