Detailed Description


Walker Sands Communications is a full-service marketing and public relations firm specializing in media relations for technology companies that range in size from startups to enterprise level. With offices in Chicago and San Francisco, Walker Sands was founded in 2001 to provide data-driven marketing support for a wide array of companies with the business mission of providing best-in-class communications counsel and services. In 2013, Walker Sands received recognition from the Inc. 5000 list of fastest growing companies, as well as several other industry-specific awards, such as PRSA Skylines, Hermes and PR Daily, among others.

Walker Sands is the integration of PR, search and social. In a fragmented media landscape, Walker Sands provides a mix of earned, owned and paid media strategies to reach a business’ core audiences. The Walker Sands approach mixes the traditional PR services of media relations and thought leadership, with the social strategies of account management and advertising, and the search tactics of web development and digital asset management.

Walker Sands has led public relations strategy and developed innovative campaigns for a range and public and private firms, including Acquity Group (NYSE: AQ), Alterian (acquired by SDL), Cisco (NASDAQ: CSCO), HarperCollins UK, Seesmart Technologies (acquired by Revolution Lighting), ThreatMetrix, Newark element14, SecureNet, ThinkVine, Center Point Properties, and more.
