Look no further. You’ve found Mattson Communications.

You’re looking to place your company’s products into new vertical markets and you need to reach decision makers. You’re beginning to think about your exit strategy. Your marketing team just doesn’t have the experience promoting the company to the trade press or working with the capital markets. Or your PR firm has junior-level staffers pitching your news to the Wall Street Journal and deciding what type of information to share and what tone to use for your social media efforts.

Whatever your reason, you want someone with experience in business-to-business corporate communications and PR. Someone who understands your situation because they’ve worked through it before. Someone who can build relationships on your behalf, then help you communicate directly with your target audiences. Someone who won’t waste your time.

Mattson Communications will understand your business and target audiences, develop an integrated communications plan, then execute to achieve superior results.

  • Mattson Communications understands the financial services marketplace and developed a PR program to specifically address Cohen Financial’s corporate objectives in this difficult environment. During the past three years, Kathy has driven our PR needs on a daily basis, consistently securing positive news placements and executive interviews that reach our target markets. She and her team are very creative, developing and pitching feature articles that always generate client comment and new business inquiries. I've enjoyed working with Mattson Communications and would highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for thoughtful, senior-level PR counsel.

    Joe Vitek, Brand Manager at Cohen Financial

  • I have used Mattson Communications services in more than one business and have been very impressed with Kathy’s ability to quickly understand the business dynamics and turn it into an actionable PR plan that gets results. We are currently working with Mattson Communications to develop byline articles, as well as to brand and secure media coverage of our North American business-to-business automation technology trade shows and conferences. I highly recommend her work.

    Larry Turner, CEO of Hannover Fairs USA

  • Kathy has been a PR consultant for me at Sensient from 2004. She has managed to find at least five article placements a year for me under very exacting circumstances. I highly recommend her resourcefulness, creativity, tenacity and tact.
