NEW YORK—KCSA Strategic Communications has acquired TanenPR, a Boston-based firm that specializes in public relations services for business to business, professional services and consumer-focused companies.
KCSA’s new Natick office, located in the Boston metro area, represents an expansion for KCSA, which was founded in 1969 and presently has more than 30 professionals located in the firm’s New York headquarters, providing public relations and investor relations counsel.
Julia Tanen, who founded TanenPR in 2001, will join KCSA as a managing director along with her staff of five professionals. She will oversee KCSA’s expansion in the Boston area and Northeast.
“Over the past several years, KCSA has focused on expanding its financial and professional services offering. The acquisition of TanenPR, which has extensive experience representing a variety of industries and firms, particularly professional services, continues the progress that we are making,” says Jeff Corbin, chief executive at KCSA. “Working with Julia Tanen and her team will also allow us to grow our investor relations practice in the Boston area, which is home to many publicly traded companies in the technology and healthcare industries.”
