SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - May 23, 2013) - Trainer Communications, a full-service public relations, integrated marketing and social media agency servicing the enterprise and consumer technology sectors, today announced the opening of a new office in San Francisco. Located at the Embarcadero Center in the heart of the city's financial district, Trainer Communications' San Francisco office will serve to fuel the agency's rapid growth. The company also announced today the appointment of Brad Langley, a seasoned communications executive who previously served in leadership roles at Blanc & Otus and Porter Novelli, as general manager. Langley's primary roles will be to provide senior level counsel to clients, market the agency and build out the San Francisco team.
"I'm delighted to establish our San Francisco presence with the strong leadership that Brad offers. Since 1995, Trainer Communications has established an excellent reputation for delivering impactful results to emerging and established companies across the technology landscape and that has allowed us to grow quickly -- especially in recent years," said Susan Thomas, founder and CEO, Trainer Communications. "San Francisco is increasingly becoming a hotbed for technology innovation and a dedicated presence there is now a necessity. Based on Brad's experience in this market, he will partner with me to build a stellar team to help technology companies solve their most complex communications challenges."
Headquartered in Pleasanton, California, Trainer Communications maintains a loyal following among companies within enterprise software, security, telecommunications, data storage and consumer technology markets. Langley's team will support clients in these industries, as well as in clean technology, digital media and semiconductor markets.
"Trainer Communications' ability to provide a full mix of integrated marketing and communications services to clients is a major draw for me, especially as companies increasingly look for multi-dimensional partners," said Langley. "Coupled with the dynamic team, strong track record of delivering meaningful results, and the agency's differentiated services, it's clear we are poised to accomplish great things. By increasing our brand awareness and partnering with the right clients, we will quickly reach our goals."
Prior to joining Trainer Communications, Langley was senior vice president and general manager at Blanc & Otus, where he led the San Francisco office and managed business development. Prior to that, he held a variety of positions at Porter Novelli, serving as account lead for several emerging start-up companies and global corporations. Throughout his career, he has counseled a range of clients on communications strategies, including Analog Devices, Bitcasa, CA Technologies, Cisco Systems, ClearEdge Power, Comverge, ECOtality, Lyris, NEC Electronics, NetQoS, QUALCOMM, Redwood Systems, Shavlik (acquired by VMware) and Tendril.
Trainer Communications' rapid growth in 2013 is driven by stellar work on behalf of its clients. Most recently, PR Week highlighted a Trainer campaign to drive awareness and downloads of the First Annual Global Threat Intelligence Report from information security company Solutionary. Trainer's integrated marketing communications program assisted the company in its efforts to secure 850 registered leads, 42 unique articles in key trade and business publications, a Webinar attended by more than 130 participants and increased engagement across social channels. Also this year, Trainer helped second screen infrastructure pioneer Magic Ruby rise above the noise at CES by arranging briefings with several hundred prospects and by securing critical visibility via key media such as CBS Channel 5, as well as key business and technology trade outlets. These initiatives are just a sampling of the innovative campaigns the company has executed in 2013.
