Leinweber Associates is a boutique public relations consulting firm that delivers big agency thinking and execution without the hierarchical big agency structure.
Unlike large or even mid-size p.r. agencies, only senior-level executives work on our clients’ businesses. This minimizes start-up activities and enables us to be “up-and-running” on account work immediately. Most important, we consistently produce national news media placements to help our clients stand out from other companies in their respective industries.
We have a wealth of experience managing successful public relations programs for companies in industries ranging from entertainment to finance. Emerging businesses and new media are among our specialties. Clients in this practice area have included Business Wire, Matrix Partners, Reed Business Information, Cambridge Translation Resources and WheelsTV, among others. Dan Leinweber, president, recently spoke on Leveraging New Media and Traditional Media to Maximize Your Public Relations Effectiveness at the annual conference of the Public Relations Society of America.
