MSR is an award-winning, public engagement firm that represents clients with passion, agility and entrepreneurial spirit—the same fervor applied to their own businesses.

With a fresh approach to each challenge, we go above and beyond to connect start-ups, and publicly traded companies alike, to the global sphere of influence through creative, strategic, and results-driven public relations, social media and digital marketing.

It all comes down to crafting and amplifying our clients’ stories in ways that cut through the noise to directly reach and engage their customers.

Global Businesses

MSR Communications offers a full array of services, including media relations, analyst relations and influencer relations, content marketing, celebrity partnerships, digital marketing, speaking engagements and crisis communications. And, with our own in-house data scientist, each program is custom-crafted and may be measured with analyses that enable all clients to demonstrate value to their organizations.

Over-service is in our DNA.

Founded in 1999 and based in San Francisco with offices in Los Angeles and Portland, MSR clients of all sizes are led by a hands-on, senior-level team comprised of professional PR strategists who have been working together for at least 12 years or more. We offer global reach through our close affiliation with PR Boutiques International, a collaborative network of like-minded, senior-level firms—each of which we know and trust—located around the globe.

MSR’s unique brand of creativity and endless stream of ideas have done so much to get our story told in a competitive field. We value MSR’s strategic counsel and close collaboration, which helps keep PR in sync with our overall business goals as the market and our needs change. Christie Fleming , Sr. Vice President Marketing & Sales at Evolve BioSystems
MSR Communications was our knight in shining armor. We didn’t give the agency a lot to work with, and yet month-over-month, they kept us in the spotlight, driving issues and debates in the media that made us relevant to reporters. With MSR Communications on the PR side, we were able to accomplish what we needed on the business side. I would work with them again in a heartbeat. Bryta Schulz , Former Vice President of Marketing at Janrain
In my international career to date, I have come across only a few PR & Social agencies that are truly world class and global. MSR Communications is at the top of that list. They were an integral part of the AVG and Kentico success. Furthermore, I could not recommend them more highly for whatever challenge or opportunity you may face, anywhere in the world. Rock stars in every sense. James Hart , Former VP of Marketing at Kentico, 2x MSR client
I am impressed by the quantity and quality of coverage MSR has secured for CalExotics. The team’s ability to bring fresh, new ideas to the table and translate them into meaningful narratives has been an exciting ride! MSR’s work has contributed to our tremendous growth in brand recognition. Nichole Grossman , Director of Marketing at CalExotics
I’ve partnered with MSR in my companies 3 times over 20 years...from their infancy in the dotcom days through the established firm they’ve become today! Congratulations to Mary and team for reaching this amazing milestone with consistent excellence all along the way! Glen Vondrick , CEO of CoSo Cloud, 3x MSR client
During the 10 years I partnered with MSR while at The Myers-Briggs Company, Mary and her team dramatically increased awareness and perception of the Myers-Briggs brand through PR and Social Media strategy, communications, and content creation. Ours was a partnership built on trust and a foundation of expertise, collaboration, and friendship -- you never let me down and always delivered incredible results! Leah Walling , Former Director of MarCom, The Myers-Briggs Co., 2x MSR client
I have hired MSR Communications no less than 5 times over the last decade. They are a top-notch firm of wonderful, highly skilled PR professionals. I highly recommend MSR to companies looking for a true communications partner who delivers results every time. Lisa Bergamo , Former Vice President of Corporate Communications at Actiance, 5x MSR client
Congrats to everyone on the MSR team for reaching this 20 year milestone. It takes great people coupled with adaptability to consistently deliver and thrive as you have. Richard Gray , CEO of Brightday
They're experts at launching a new product entry into the marketplace with the right combination of strategic industry positioning and consumer relevance. They excel at creating media awareness. MSR is a valuable partner--organized, professional and highly skilled. Howard Gefen , Former Executive VP of Marketing & Business Development at Obopay
Congrats MSR on 20 years! Your continued success comes as no surprise given the constant care and creativity you put into making sure we were always in the spotlight. Though we were on other side of the world and a mid-sized company, the ongoing feature coverage you generated did much to boost our thought leadership and brand awareness as a true global player. Cheers! Robert Pinkas , VP of Marketing at Kentico
Congratulations to Mary and the rest of the MSR team on this major milestone of 20 years, which I have no doubt was made possible by the sincere passion for PR and personal dedication to your clients that I’ve seen since your earliest days. It's this commitment and the results that you consistently deliver that keeps me coming back. David Hsieh , CEO of Kaptivo, 5x MSR client
