Our Team

Julie Crotty, Partner

For the past 15 years Julie has helped clients develop and execute strategic PR and marketing programs that directly address business objectives. She has worked with both emerging start ups and recognized brands to establish market leadership and awareness. Her no nonsense approach has earned the respect of clients and media alike as each communications campaign is customized to meet the needs of each individual audience.

Julie is particularly adept at breaking down technical content and transforming it into interesting, relevant information that can be used across the communications spectrum to establish thought leadership, drive market awareness, and drown out competitive “noise”.

Her clients over the years have included Congnizant (NASDAQ: CTSH), EMC (NYSE: EMC), Harbor One Bank, Kalido, and Tyco Retail Solutions among many others. Her work has been recognized by both the League of American Communications Professionals and the Public Relations Society of America.

Julie holds a B.S. in Business Communications from Bentley College. She is a reluctant hockey mom to two young boys who share her love of Boston sports, but not her love of basketball (despite her best efforts!).
