KCD PR Expands High-Tech Communications Practice
KCD PR, a San Diego-based public relations and content marketing agency that provides communications counsel for leaders in the financial services, fintech and high-tech industries, today announced it has added Brain Corporation of San Diego and 1st Global, headquartered in Dallas, to its client roster.
Brain Corporation is a high-tech startup born from Qualcomm specializing in building brains for tomorrow’s robots, transforming a manually operated machine into an autonomous solution. Brain Corporation applies expertise in machine learning and computer vision to create intelligent systems capable of functioning autonomously in complex human environments. KCD PR will work with Brain Corporation to position the firm’s transformative technologies and build exposure around the startup’s ‘autonomy as a service’ solution.
“We look forward to watching our “autonomy as a service” campaign unfold as we expand our reach into different markets,” said Eugene Izhikevich, co-founder, chairman and CEO of Brain Corporation. “We truly felt KCD PR’s experience managing communications for growing B2B firms, coupled with their knowledge of the technology and financial markets made this a natural fit.”
KCD PR also recently secured 1st Global Research & Consulting, an independently owned research and consulting partner for Certified Public Accountants and tax and estate planning firms, as a client. As a part of this relationship, KCD PR will execute a comprehensive communications and public relations strategy aimed at advancing 1st Global’s brand awareness within local, industry and national markets. The agency’s campaign is designed to showcase the power of 1st Global, advance the company’s new initiatives and position its executives as industry thought leaders.
Additionally, KCD PR is proud to announce two key personnel moves: John Stoepler to vice president of corporate development and promotion of Kelly Gardner to account coordinator. The hire of Stoepler will help better position KCD PR to compete in an extremely competitive marketplace and increase awareness of the value the firm offers to its client base. Gardner will be responsible for developing and managing marketing and communications initiatives for clients, conducting media relations outreach and driving internal marketing initiatives.
“We’ve had a transformative year in terms of the growth of our agency into various verticals, new client engagements and key company additions,” said Kevin Dinino, founder and president of KCD PR. “We have a shared interest in differentiating and driving brand awareness for both Brain Corporation and 1st Global, as they are visionaries in their space. We are honored to be working with them.”
