The Public Relations and Marketing Group, LLC has been helping businesses, non-profit organizations, governmental agencies and other entities find their way to success since it opened in 2002.

Like his enterprising predecessors at Apple and Hewlett Packard, John C. Zaher founded the company with Brad A. Swezey out of an office in John’s father’s West Islip home, after working for nearly a decade in public relations and marketing for government and the telecommunications industry.

In the years since, PRMG has grown into a full-service public relations and marketing firm providing integrated services to New York Metro area companies, non-profits and governmental organizations out of its Long Island and New York City offices.

In the relatively short time since the company first opened its doors, the influences of the Internet have had a dramatic impact on the way people make buying decisions. The result is that traditional marketing and advertising approaches are not as effective as they once were. PRMG’s integrated approach, with an emphasis on public relations and social media, has given the firm an edge by allowing it to develop strategies that use a full range of tools to reach people through the Web.

While its approaches have changed, the firm’s mission has remained the same: to help its clients grow by allowing them to worry less about their own public relations, marketing and advertising efforts and focus more on the business that is their business.

PRMG is one of the fastest-growing local agencies. Its success has been rooted in providing the highest-quality services at competitive prices, along with a commitment to help its clients become more successful. However, the company is most proud of the fact that its first three clients are still clients and that many of the organizations it works for have been using the firm for more than five years.

PRMG’s executive staff has years of experience in public relations, marketing, Web development, graphic design and video production. In the last decade, members of PRMG’s staff have won numerous awards for their public relations, advertising and marketing campaigns, for their writing and photography and for their video productions and television commercials.
