|Description||Public Relations Agency|
Access Communications is a full-service public relations agency that transforms ideas into actions. Over the past decade and a half, Access has worked with companies of all sizes, helping startups become category leaders, guiding clients through IPOs, transforming executives into thought leaders, and helping to build billions of dollars of brand equity for clients.
A startup itself in 1991, Access Communications has grown into the nation’s 15th largest public relations firm specializing in technology. In October 2008, Access was acquired by Ketchum, Inc. and now operates as a separate brand. The relationship with Ketchum enables Access to provide “on demand” access to a global network and additional practice area expertise. Today Access employs 82 full-time professionals at offices in San Francisco and New York. Twice since 2004, the San Francisco Business Times and the San Jose/Silicon Valley Business Journal named Access “The Best Place to Work in the Greater San Francisco Bay Area.” In 2006, The Holmes Report placed Access on its nationwide list of the “Best Midsize Agencies to Work For.”
Over the last sixteen years Access has established a breadth and depth of media relationships essential to successfully generate and revive awareness for new and established brands from Apple to Siebel Systems and Google to Disney.
Access is proud to be referred to as a “power boutique,” an agency large and knowledgeable enough to serve Fortune 500 clients, manage international accounts, and offer research and design capabilities, but small and nimble enough to provide hands-on service to companies regardless of their size.
