Turner PR Continues to Grow

The Denver Business Journal profiled Turner PR this week, noting that, “While many businesses struggle to survive the recession, Turner PR is doing something surprising: expanding its clients and staff. The Denver company, which also has offices in New York and Los Angeles, has picked up six high-profile clients since November and is looking to hire a new social media specialist.” New clients include Eddie Bauer and Hotel Teatro. I’d point out that much of that growth has followed Turner’s hiring of Jordan Blakesley and BrieAnn Fast, but they are far too modest to want me to do that.
