Daniel de Grandpre, CEO, DealNews

DealNews began working with Lisa Hagendorf of Centerpiece Public Relations when our Head of PR left suddenly. He'd done both spokesperson work and media placement, a rarity. Lisa is very strategic and understands both PR and brand marketing at a high level. Our small company (100 people) is unabashedly a PR powerhouse, with multiple top-tier placements each week. Lisa was challenged with maintaining our trajectory while we searched for a new hire. Lisa both maintained our key relationships and helped us screen candidates. She also identified and trained current employees as expert spokespeople. The replacement person we hired as head of PR, through Lisa's work, has been a great hire, and with media placements separated from spokesperson work, our company is now operationally superior than before we started with Lisa.
