What Customers Say About Us

“Marc is one of the best PR professionals I’ve worked with, and any security startup would be crazy not to consider him. Instead of the bait-and-switch that sometimes occurs with larger agencies, with Marc you get a senior, well-connected professional who will be your constant contact. Marc has earned the trust and respect of the press over the years, and as a result he is able to pull off the kind of stories and projects that I’ve seen large agencies fumble. Short of cloning Marc and having the clone work full time at your company, Marc is your best option.”

- Doug Camplejohn, Mi5 Networks (Now Symantec)

“I’ve worked with Marc Gendron for over seven years in two different companies. Marc is a smart and talented PR person who maintains good relationships with information security reporters. Marc did a great job for Trusteer distributing our research findings and exposing our products in multiple technical publications.”

- Mickey Boodaei, CEO of Transmit Security, CEO of Trusteer (Now IBM) and co-founder Imperva (NYSE: IMPV)

“Marc Gendron and his partner in crime, Jane Parrish run a boutique public relations agency for emerging information technology vendors, which repeatedly produces the best results money can buy. Both Marc and Jane have an excellent understanding of the networking and security software industry, making it easy to engage with them and creating successful pitches. Rather than spending hours on explaining your pitch, you can focus on strategic tasks and leave the tactical details to Marc and Jane. Furthermore, they’re extremely well connected in the media and analyst world, allowing them to frequently uncover hidden editorial opportunities.

Since hiring Marc Gendron Public Relations, we have almost weekly coverage and created a huge buzz that helped us grow our pipeline. Marc’s and Jane’s contributions have become an essential part of our lead generation efforts and are a great testament for the definition of integrated marketing.”

- Torsten George, RiskSense

“I decided to bring Marc in as Imperva’s outside PR agency after working with him on a joint PR project in late 2004. He did a great job in helping us to raise our profile from a little known market entrant to the market leader for Web Application Firewall and Database Activity Monitoring. I would recommend Marc to any startup or emerging growth technology company in need of expert guidance and execution for PR.”

- Mark Kraynak, Imperva
