Our roots are deep in creative. Our minds are digital, our guts strategic, and our passion is using our craft and experience to solve real-world challenges.
Many years ago, the principals of the agency started on an international path, professionally, and have been solving creative and strategic challenges ever since.
I have worked with Barry while he was a senior exec at 3 different large media corporations and have been lucky enough to have retained Barry when I have had my own companies. I have both observed and benefitted from his mentorship capabilities. His marketing advisory expertise is, quite simply, an integral part of a successful management team. Barry's long term strategic thinking enables a company to match its media profile to its key goals. His endless media network permits this message to be broadcast throughout print, television, radio and the Web. This package of instantaneous credibility is unique. Barry is the professional you need to make your marketing positioning work.

Barry Kluger may be the best public relations executive with whom I ever worked. His ability to get the story in the media is outstanding, but what is more remarkable is his ability to have the media report the story the way he wanted it to be reported. While no one can control the press or the media, Barry can influence them to provide the angle on the story that he wants. He is sharp, analytical and effective. I would enthusiastically recommend him to anyone for any project.

Barry Kluger is an anomaly. He is a timeless, innovative, strategic, big company, entrepreneur, visionary communications and marketing expert. He is also a wonderfully human partner who has helped me many times over the last 15 plus years. Barry is a resource that I would like to have by my side all the time. His counsel and guidance truly make businesses better.

I have known Barry Kluger for more than 30 years and have been very impressed with his ability to assess a situation, prepare a strategic plan and execute it, far exceeding a company's expectations. As one of my most senior executives at MTV Networks, a direct report and a collaborator on numerous projects over the years, he has demonstrated a unique ability to quickly understand what needs to be done, to enhance a company's image, positioning and competitive stance, making him one of the most talented communication strategists I have met.

There is not a crisis he can't manage, not a brow he can't soothe, not a diva he can't charm, not a company headache he can't overcome. Barry is a pro at managing, leading, and winning the press. He did it all at MTV, and continues to work his magic on a variety of important causes. Working with Barry is to trust him, and I couldn't recommend him more.
Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer
Barry is that rare professional who can equally navigate the trenches as well as the C suite. He brings extensive experience in delivering key communications platforms not only for his own critical initiatives but for those wise executives who have benefited from his counsel. I've worked with Barry on a wide range of PR-related activities over the years and he's truly regarded as one of the most dedicated, diligent, creative and comprehensive communications professionals that I have encountered to my 35 years in the business.

I had the wonderful opportunity to meet James when I was managing business development at Monster Products. James is a consummate professional and personal friend. As a professional, he dedicates his time to get to know his clients on a deeper level than other marketing professionals. He takes special note of the company culture as well as takes the time to understand the goals of the different departments. With this knowledge, he is able to craft lots of creative ideas to show his client. As a personal friend, he takes the time to have personal conversations with you, and he always offers to lend a helping hand when needed.
James is a sincere, dedicated and smart marketer who builds solid relationships. These qualities make him great in several roles from creative to production work to new business development. James and I have worked together on projects in the past. He's someone I've chosen to stay in touch with over the years because he is a quality individual.
