TESTIMONIALS

I’ve had the good fortune of working with Gallagher PR on two highly successful ventures: Ipsilon Networks and Redback Networks. With the help of GPR, Ipsilon was acquired by Nokia. And Redback Networks went on to a tremendously successful IPO before being acquired by Ericsson. What sets GPR apart is that they assign senior level talent to deliver positioning, messaging, launch strategies, writing and top notch media and analyst relations services.

— Larry Blair, CEO, Kaleo Apps, Inc.

There are numerous Silicon Valley PR firms that, ironically, are virtually indistinguishable from one another – many of them controlled by the big NY media conglomerates. What makes Gallagher PR stand out is their unique combination of senior level, hands-on strategy coupled with top notch writing services and imaginative media and analyst relations capabilities. If you’re looking for a shop with a high ‘get it’ and ‘work hard’ factor, this is your agency.

— Paul Wiefels, Managing Director, the Chasm Group LLC

As a WAN Optimization start-up competing in a fiercely competitive market, Peribit sought out a PR agency that combined technical depth, compelling writing ability and aggressive media and analyst relations capabilities.

I’ve worked with many marketing and PR vendors over the last 20 years in Silicon Valley and truly enjoyed the unique results that Gallagher PR consistently delivers. GPR’s seasoned veterans are not only deep technically, but they understand the blend of art and science required to differentiate products and contribute to the creative ‘black magic’ that produces great results and influences sales revenue.

— Adam Stein, Principal, APS Marketing, Inc. (Former VP Marketing at Mu Dynamics)

Having outside PR counsel can be invaluable to presenting a compelling story. Gallagher PR has the technical depth to understand and develop such an approach. Their critical thinking, writing skills and results-driven PR program support are second to none.

The ability to translate highly technical material into easy-to-understand business case messaging is an art.

I really enjoyed working with Kevin while at XACCT. The Gallagher PR team was a true partner in our efforts to launch a brand new start-up. Their contributions towards our messaging and positioning efforts were invaluable. Their skill in stress-testing our value proposition and business case arguments had a lot to do with the success of XACCT, eventually acquired by Amdocs. What I most appreciate is GPR’s devil’s advocate approach that helped prepare us for hard-hitting media and analyst challenges. Much more than a ‘blocking and tackling’ PR shop, GPR is a value-adding consultancy that delivers high impact services spanning messaging, writing and media relations.

— Anil Uberoi, Former SVP Marketing & Biz Dev at XACCT

It’s not often that a PR agency combines technical depth and outside of the box marketing and media savvy with good basic PR chops. Gallagher PR is one of the few agencies I’ve worked with that has the complete package, of particular value to tech ventures in interesting new arenas.

— Peter Christy, Research Director, Networking, 451 Research

One hallmark of a great PR agency is the ability to take a stealth company from ‘ground zero to hero’ by creating a highly defensible and credible market position that stands up to media and analyst scrutiny, while attracting highly qualified customer prospects. That’s exactly what Gallagher PR has done. Thanks to their exceptional counsel and resulting media coverage, Core4 now enjoys a prominent position in the data center cooling market segment.

— Rick Cockrell, former CTO, Core4 Systems
