Work Highlights

Media Interviews Deepen Brand Prestige

Harris Interactive turned to G&S to help refresh the “aura” of the Reputation Quotient® study (RQ) and re-establish it as the industry standard for quantifying corporate reputation. To kick things off, we launched a video interview with Yahoo! Finance, positioning the RQ as a trending topic on the internet. Outreach to online news outlets was balanced with an aggressive push to traditional business media. The story was shared widely, including coverage from the Huffington Post, and drove so much demand for insights into the financial services sector that Harris created a new, proprietary multi-client offering for that vertical segment. Increasing visibility of Harris, its executives were asked to speak at numerous prestigious industry events.

This campaign was named the Media Relations (Print) category winner in the SABRE (North America) PR and communications competition.

CEO Commentary on Financial Crisis

Recognizing a relevant opportunity following breaking news about Detroit’s financial crisis, the G&S team secured an interview for Commonfund CEO Verne Sedlacek on CNBC Squawk Box to weigh in on the looming crisis in state and local pension funds.
