The Company

Y&R PR is born out of the iconic communications agency Y&R – and part of the renowned brand builder BCW (Burson Cohn & Wolfe). We were founded in 2013 to bring unparalleled strategic thinking and flawless execution to a Fortune 50 company and its multiple brands around the world. Since then we have built much of our success on reinventing the traditional client-agency relationship. We were recently nominated for 2018 Best Small Agency of the Year by PR Week.

For decades the public relations industry has been known for developing standardized models and proprietary tools to develop big ideas and bring them to the masses. At Y&R PR, we have reinvented the impact PR can have on our clients’ business. Our people are encouraged to think off the beaten path, yet always carry a GPS. While we still adhere to established strategic approaches, we pressure test the traditional tenets of PR campaigns to get the best results. We don’t just create unique ideas; we create unique ways to deliver them. At the end of the day we understand that in today’s environment, it’s not just about making a dollar, it’s about making it count. For all these reasons, Y&R PR is truly unique – so prepare to be refreshed!
