NEW YORK and PLEASANTVILLE, N.Y., Sept. 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Two well-known boutique brands in technology public relations – Feintuch Communications and Roher Public Relations – have joined together to offer clients expanded senior talent and breadth of services.
Feintuch Communications, founded in 2009 by tech industry veteran and former journalist Henry Feintuch, specializes in technology, financial services/fintech, cleantech/clean energy, adtech/media and professional services. Mr. Feintuch is a past chair of the technology section of the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) and the immediate past president of PRSA-NY. He also serves as vice chair of the Public Relations World Alliance (www.PRWorldAlliance.com), a premier network of independent PR firms.
Roher Public Relations, based in Pleasantville, N.Y. with offices in Portland, Ore., is an award-winning firm best known in electronics and other high tech markets, including consumer electronics, AV, telecom and IT. The firm, managed by Richard S. Roher, APR, was founded in Manhattan in 1968 by the late Daniel S. Roher, a former Congressional aide, campaign manager and advertising executive. Prior to a 30-year career in PR, Richard, an alumnus of Reed College, was a marketing technical writer for makers of avionics, naval systems and medical and industrial instruments.
The business introduction and transaction was brokered by Art Stevens, managing partner, The Stevens Group.
"Bringing Henry Feintuch and Richard Roher together for this business combination was more a labor of friendship than work," said Mr. Stevens. "I've known Henry for many years and we serve together on the board of PRSA-NY. Dan Roher was a personal friend for decades, and I've known Richard for 25 years. In this circumstance, I was able to bring together two PR pros whom I know and respect and who have many business synergies. Watch them grow!"
Mr. Roher will become a managing partner in Feintuch Communications and will serve as president of the Roher PR Group within the combined firm. Current clients in the Roher PR Group include Legrand North America, Atlona and SureCall.
"For some time I've felt the need to broaden our firm's services and to offer the integrated communications programs I believe clients need in a multi-faceted marketing environment," said Mr. Roher. "At the same time, I didn't want to diminish the role of PR and media relations in our services or become subordinate to an ad agency. Feintuch Communications, which stresses integrated programs with a PR-centric perspective, is the perfect match for our firm. Our experience and specialties dovetail neatly and we have no client conflicts. I appreciate Art's role in bringing us together."
"Rich and I share a similar client service ethic and both understand how an effective PR campaign can favorably impact our clients' businesses," said Mr. Feintuch.
