SEATTLE, July 16—Weber Shandwick veterans Krista Foxwell, Rebecca Haas and Jennifer Karkar have launched Revolution Public Relations, a new technology-oriented public relations firm with offices in Seattle and Portland. The new firm launches with two new clients: Qpass, a leading provider of solutions for wireless carries and ZAAZ, a leading Web design and technology consultancy.
 
According to the partners, Revolution “is dedicated to delivering the highest level of client service and customer satisfaction to companies in all stages of development.” The firm will develop that return value to the bottom line and support an organization’s business goals.
“We saw a real need for creative, value-added and cost-effective public relations counsel in the Pacific Northwest for companies of all sizes and in many industries, specifically high-technology,” said Karkar. “We are extremely excited to work with Qpass and ZAAZ, pioneers in their respective industries.”
 
Karkar spent four years in the Portland office of The Weber Group, and worked on clients including Netegrity and CIGNA. Foxwell worked at Waggener Edstrom and MedicaLogic before joining Weber Shandwick and handling clients such as ProSight and NetIQ. Haas, another veteran of the Portland market, managed the Digimarc and Noetics accounts.
 
“Teaming with public relations professionals that are dedicated to driving smart, strategic campaigns at any budget is exactly what we were looking for in our agency,” said Norman Guadagno, vice-president, marketing and product strategy at Qpass. “The energy and enthusiasm for out-of-the-box thinking put Revolution above the field of competitors.”
