Calysto Communications Ranked as Second  Largest Public Relations Firm in Atlanta

ATLANTA (June 15, 2010) – Calysto Communications, a global public relations and social media marketing firm focused on the broadcasting, mobile and telecommunications industries, today announced its recognition as the second largest public relations firm, as ranked in the Atlanta Business Chronicle’s listing of “Atlanta’s Largest Public Relations Firms.”

Calysto moved up from a rank of fourth in 2008 and a rank of 46 when the company first appeared in the Book of Lists in 1999. The ranking is based on a public relations firm's staff, revenue and anticipated income.

“Since its founding more than a decade ago, Calysto has continued its steady growth by delivering unmatched expertise to our clients in three key industries: broadcasting, mobile and telecommunications,” said Laura Borgstede, founder and CEO of Calysto Communications. “In the last few years, we’ve begun offering an even more comprehensive service portfolio to our clients by launching a social media practice and by establishing a local team member in more than 80 countries worldwide. These are just a few examples of how Calysto is constantly adapting to meet our clients’ evolving needs.”

Calysto Communications is a recognized leader in public relations and social media for companies in the broadcasting, mobile and telecom industries. The agency is focused on helping clients combine “traditional” public relations activities with innovative social media marketing techniques to get the most out of their public relations programs.

Calysto has been consistently ranked as a leading public relations agency in PRSourceCode’s “Top Tech Communicators” study, which asks more than 500 technology journalists to evaluate PR agencies and individual PR professionals based on the value they deliver to the editorial process, in terms of responsiveness, reliability, and overall recognition of editorial needs.

Last year, Laura Borgstede, CEO and founder of Calysto Communications, was also personally recognized as a Top Tech PR Pro in the “Top Tech Communicators” study.

Calysto’s North American-based team consists of more than 50 senior-level associates located in media and technology hubs throughout the United States, including Atlanta, Chicago, New York, Washington, D.C., and the Silicon Valley.

Each senior-level team member boasts 10 to 25+ years of experience in public relations, marketing and social media marketing and at least eight years of experience in broadcast, mobile and telecom communications technologies.
