Paul Cataldo, Vice President, Marketing, Checkpoint Systems
" Throughout my career I have worked with several agencies nationwide. George Cohen Communications (GCC) stands above them with a greater level of professionalism, client service, experience and, most important, results. In each case I have engaged GCC, I have seen a marked qualitative and quantitative increase in coverage. George and his team know the business of public relations and what it takes to break through the noise to generate credible and high profile coverage.

Alan Sherman, Director of Marketing, OATSystems
" GCC brings top-level professionalism as a key part of our marketing team, making the "which PR firm should I work with?" decision an easy one . Their depth and breadth of experience in all aspects of public relations are unparalleled, yet his approach is hands-on and client-focused. They bring keen insight and understanding to the table, and consistently deliver impressive results. Especially in these times of tight budgets and limited resources, you need all "A" players. Bring GCC in and gain the competitive edge -- you will not be disappointed. "
Liam Donohue, Chairman, Business Intelligence Advisors
" GCC's solid business PR experience and customer orientation was evident
in the rapid manner in which it responded to a potentially sensitive
editorial inquiry from Barron's. GCC worked with us on key messaging,
prepared us for interviews and managed the editorial relationship to
conclusion. The resulting Barron's cover story on our firm was positive
and conveyed our key messages. The
resulting PR proved to be a very cost-effective investment. "

I recommend them without hesitation. "

Mark Denton, Product Director, Bridgewater Systems
" I like working with senior staffers at GCC because they pick things up really fast, cutting down the time it takes me to brief them and the time taken to review their work. This cannot be underestimated; I have worked with supposed experts who I have taken an hour to brief and I may as well not have bothered! The standard of George Cohen’s writing is very high, and his work is produced on time every time. If he promises this afternoon he means this afternoon, and you can count on him delivering. "
Leigh Ann Empey, VP Product Marketing, Bridgewater Systems
