Edelman today acquiredA&R Partners. This is one of the largest and most successful PR firms in Silicon Valley. It has 115 people and revenues of $15 million. Edelman's Silicon Valley team will be integrated with A&R
As a combined entity we are now the largest technology PR firm in Silicon Valley and one of the largest in the U.S. A&R represents huge tech brands, including Adobe, Palm, Citrix, and Mozilla. (Hey Rafael Ebron - we work together now, buddy!)
This is a really exciting time to be on board with Edelman. When you look at all of our recent moves - me2revolution, Technorati, A&R, etc. - it's clear that we're excited about technology. We're using it to drive conversation and to innovate, but at the same time we're serving as a critical partner to the players in tech industry.
I am really looking forward to meeting the A&R team and their clients. Many of these companies are already blogging so I will be really interested to hear about their experiences and what we can learn from them. Welcome A&R!
