Have PR Prowess?

Impact PR is Hiring

You have a choice of where you work. Choose carefully.

At Impact PR & Communications, we have four values that sum us up.
They guide our work ethic and are the basis for decisions about who we work with (and who works with us). We:

• Collaborate and Communicate.

• Put People First.

• Act with Integrity, Always.

• Look Forward, Think Forward.

We like to think we do things differently at our public relations and marketing agency.  A completely virtual agency model (we embraced the remote world long before the pandemic), we have deep roots in the Hudson Valley region and, in addition to New Yorkers, have team members based in Connecticut and New Jersey. We value track records over time in seats, outcomes over rules, kindness over egos, relationships over transactions and think that it’s 100% possible to do work that’s fierce, but to do it with a smile.

Our client roster includes well-known national consumer brands, real estate and construction power players, banks and financial services firms, mission-driven nonprofits and more. We do work we’re proud of – and in ways we feel good about. For instance, Impact PR was awarded the gold Stevie Award for Women in Business as a Top Women-Run Workplace of the Year, a global recognition, and has gotten kudos year after year for its creative PR campaigns
