Holmes Report

Until the middle of last year, Gallagher Public Relations focused almost exclusively on start-up companies in the telecommunications and Internet infrastructure space. But even though the firm didn’t serve dot-coms directly, their demise had an impact on the volume of start-up business, and in August the firm opted to expand its offering to provide support to more mature companies including public companies and late-stage start-ups that have shipped product, acquired customers, realized revenue, and seek to differentiate themselves among the competition.
 
To do so, Gallagher offers two products: JumpstartPR, a focused, short-term program targeted at early-stage startups that want to create and convey effective positioning messages, as well as established companies seeking to retool their corporate or product messaging in response to market conditions; and the longer-term TurnaroundPR program for public companies that require a bold strategic and tactical approach to a specific market issue or challenge.
 
Clients continue to turn to GPR for its in-depth knowledge of the Internet infrastructure and telecommunications space, its ability to provide both strategic marketing communications value and tactical PR support, and its experience in launching more than 20 companies—five of which have been acquired, seven of which have gone on to successful IPOs (including the first technology IPO of 2001, Riverstone Networks. New clients in 2001 included Inkra Networks, Spinnaker Networks, Vina Technologies, Bandwidth9, Megisto Systems, and Ikanos Communications, and the firm ended the year flat, with 24 employees.
