Press Release Body: The face of PR is about to change. Diane Blackman and Cindy Rakowitz, two of the most innovative, dynamic forces in public relations, are teaming up to create a unique bi-coastal agency focused on dramatically boosting mindshare and market share for their worldwide clients.
Blackman.Rakowitz Public Relations represents a bold new partnership that will build on the duos' strong foundation in public relations, media, corporate communications, crisis and reputation management, branding and marketing to develop breakthrough strategies that not only get noticed, they achieve bottom-line results.
With offices in New York and Los Angeles, B.R can capitalize on its access and relationships to top tier media outlets across all platforms. They know the people who matter--key trendsetters, opinion leaders and decision makers-and have shown they can generate ideas and stories with the interest and power to saturate the media. In the fast-changing world of new media platforms, B.R's rapid response team is highly skilled at crafting messages and delivering them in any medium, including the internet, viral campaigns, prime time TV, newspaper front pages, magazine covers, guerilla marketing and influential blogs. For the firm's global clients, the intense media exposure translates into optimum profitability
"In today's ever-evolving marketplace, you have to react quicker and smarter, leverage every relationship and exhaust every option," says co-founder Cindy Rakowitz, who is equally comfortable in the board room or press room. "B.R will dare to be different, finding fresh approaches that are grounded in our more than 20 years of experience and expertise in this industry."
"We've each earned a reputation for doing whatever it takes for our clients to achieve unprecedented success, whether they are Fortune 500 companies or pioneering start-ups, and we bring that energy and unbridled passion to B.R," notes co-founder Diane Blackman, sought after for her ability to jump start projects and achieve blanket coverage. "This partnership gives us greater flexibility and maneuverability to develop media strategies that significantly raise visibility and value."
Seasoned executives, Blackman and Rakowitz each boast an impressive record of turning unknown products, attractions and companies into blockbusters, building brands that stand out from the clutter and catapulting them to the next level, while generating an enormous buzz for their diverse clients worldwide. Their expertise also extends to all areas of corporate communications, including crisis management, internal communications and public affairs.
As the founder and president of D.L. Blackman & Co., Diane Blackman built a results-driven public relations agency that for over a decade was highly regarded for its innovative approach and strategic counsel in the fields of business, technology and entertainment.
"Diane delivered an unparalleled level of media impressions," says Janine DiGioacchino, General Manager of Madame Tussauds New York, "driving up the brand awareness from 8% domestically to over 60% in year one. The agency's work ethic and character are outstanding, with a fantastic sense of urgency and the ability to treat you as if you are the only client, providing access and availability to me and my team 24 hours a day, 7 days a week."
An award-winning executive with a track record of success in a variety of industries, Cindy Rakowitz has an exceptional reputation in the fields of marketing, communications, public relations, promotions and product development. As a division president for Playboy Enterprises, she was instrumental in promoting global brand partnerships throughout the world.
"Cindy understands the need to manage the media in potentially volatile situations," says Arthur Greenberg, founder of Greenberg & Bass. "With her knowledge of legal principles, she has proven to us time and time again that the disciplines of law and public relations, while seemingly strange bedfellows, can and often must work hand in hand."
