A Public Relations Network Built on Service

Now comprised of 50 agencies, PRGN provides top-level PR, communications and marketing services to an always-expanding spectrum of industries. Our sector specific experience includes automotive, consumer, business-to-business, education, financial services, government, healthcare, not-for-profit, retail, science, technology and travel / hospitality – among many more.
Each member agency operates independently, guided by entrepreneurial leaders who are personally engaged with their PRGN counterparts around the world. Each agency also offers its own areas of unique specialization.
PRGN adheres to the strict code of ethics established by the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA). By limiting new membership to an invitation-only basis, the network maintains the highest possible standards of performance and expertise to offer clients across-the-board confidence in both the quality and consistency of our work.
How does it work? PRGN customizes its approach based on the needs of the client. In most cases, one agency oversees the work of others throughout the globe. In some cases, an organization may select to work individually with local market leaders. In the most recent years, Johnson & Johnson, Bar Louie, LYFE Kitchen, Carrington College, Domino’s Pizza, Providence Health & Services, Clipper Vacations, and many others have selected PRGN’s agencies to service their global needs.
