Russell Public Relations serves clients nationwide in dozens of industries. Specialty practice areas include aerospace, defense, manufacturing, technology, distance learning, homeland security, emergency and disaster management, and travel.

At RPR, we build a solid foundation of integrated communication programs and services that include creating good relationships. Each is individually designed to best move a product, service or cause forward. We are experts in media relations, crisis communication, strategic planning and consulting and more.

We start by helping to analyze your strengths and challenges. We identify existing audiences — and may uncover new ones. Then we help develop important messages for everyone in the company to own and communicate.

Strategies and tools may include research, social networks, speaking opportunities, media relations, community outreach and much more.

Marketing and other communication strategies and tactics can be incorporated in the public relations program — or blended into existing marketing programs. The key is to integrate communications for longterm success, long-term growth, protecting and enhancing the company's reputation all along the way.

RPR is a service-disabled, veteran-owned, woman-owned small business.
