about maroon pr

Drive Growth Through Relationships

Longtime public relations professional John Maroon started the firm in 2006 with a specific goal in mind: to drive growth for clients through meaningful relationships. Even though the public relations landscape has evolved over the years, relationships remain at the center of our company.

Maroon PR is a creative communications agency that drives growth through relationships. For over 17 years we have always understood and stuck to who we are: a values-driven agency.

Our expertise is highlighted in our core communications strategies – media relations, social media, content development, relationship building and targeted media buying – and through these, we have built a proven reputation of delivering the results our clients need to grow their businesses.

The Maroon PR client roster spans a broad breadth of industries, and our ability to find creative solutions for the challenges our clients face – regardless of the industry – is a cornerstone for our success. We continue to evolve at a rapid pace with a constantly changing media landscape. Maroon PR’s adaptability to this evolution, to remain at the cutting edge of our industry, allows us to redefine public relations to deliver the results our clients have come to expect.

With proven results in nearly two decades as an industry leader, we are proud of the success we continue to have for our clients. Our values-driven approach and commitment to becoming an extension of our client teams gives our clients confidence. They know they are working with a proven, adaptable team of problem-solvers, and at the end of the day, Maroon PR is the firm they want to have a beer with to celebrate the successes and plan for the future together.
