Working with PRGN offers big-agency capabilities and reach with the personal service and attention to details of a small agency. Clients benefit from having the hands-on involvement of equity-owning senior counselors on every assignment from strategic development through execution.
Flexibility is the key to working with PRGN. Clients can choose to work with one agency or several. They can decide whether to instruct agencies individually or through a single lead agency.
Looking to provide outstanding global public relations solutions while capitalizing on local agency and team expertise, PRGN was formed in 1992. Each agency adheres to the code of ethics established by the Public Relations Society of America and adopted by PRGN.
