Consultancy Triples Growth in Glens Falls
Founder Cites Fertile Business Climate, Proximity to Natural Resources, and Access to Talent
Team Expands with New Account Executive
Glens Falls, NY, January 31, 2022 – Sustainable PR, a public relations agency supporting the growth of green businesses, has tripled in its first year of operations. Fueling the PR firm’s growth is the demand for media relations services among innovative green companies.
“Whether it’s COP26 or the Biden Plan on combatting climate change, we are benefiting from significant tailwinds in the sustainability market,” said Tony DeFazio, a 30-year PR veteran and founder and principal of Sustainable PR. “Our services, strong team, and strategic location will continue to serve us well as sustainable innovations shape the green economy.”
The public relations agency provides media relations services including key message development, press relations, media training, and influencer engagement to clients. Since launching a year ago, the company has signed multiple clients in green technology, renewable energy, impact investing, sustainable water, and green agriculture. Notably, the firm has been leading communications for Glens Falls Urban Agriculture Pilot, a hydroponic project to convert unused or underutilized industrial buildings into productive year-round urban farms.
The company recently opened an office at 46 Elm Street in the heart of downtown Glens Falls, a block off South Street, where a $10 million economic development initiative to revitalize the corridor is expected to get underway in 2022. According to a NPR story, “economic recessions can create ideal conditions for people to start their own businesses – and the economic downturn caused by the pandemic is no different.”
“Glens Falls has everything businesses need,” commented DeFazio. “Restaurants, banks and business services are within walking distance. Investment is pouring into the area as entrepreneurs recognize its intrinsic value. It’s just an ideal location at the gateway to the Adirondack Park, 45 minutes from Albany and 30 minutes from Saratoga Springs.”
Sustainable PR is successfully helping clients reach national and international customers. “I am thrilled, but not surprised, by the concrete results my company has seen since working with Sustainable PR. I was confident from our first meeting that Tony’s passion would translate into success for our business,” says Cipriani Energy Group’s COO, Chris Stroud.
Evanesce, a sustainable packaging technology company in British Columbia is using Sustainable PR’s services to expand their growth into the United States. The agency is leading an integrated public and investor relations campaign to raise the company’s profile in the food services industry, where its patented molded starch technology is disrupting the sector.
Sustainable PR has also announced the hiring of Myla Dobson as Account Executive. Dobson is responsible for managing client campaigns and supporting the agency’s community relations. Dobson is a recent 2021 graduate of Hartwick College, where she majored in Political Science.
