About VMR PR
VMR PR is a PR consulting company that helps businesses use media relations and media strategies to achieve their communications goals. Our activities begin and end with listening to each client, hearing not only its goals, but its unique story -- of success, striving, innovation, quirks, corporate culture, case histories or any of a dozen other attributes. We leave cookie cutters in the kitchen. Our activities are based on telling the right story at the right time to the right audience in the right way.
Located in two offices, including New York City (the media capital of the world) VMR PR has worked with startups to Fortune 500 companies, mostly but not exclusively in business to business PR, in many industries.
