Agency Background

In 1990, business partners Carol Levine and Esther Buchsbaum hung out their Communications MECA shingle outside a small space on St. Alexandre Street in charming Old Montreal. In a gutsy move for a small agency, they opened their first Toronto office in 2002 and recently moved into their new home on Spadina Avenue. Both experienced PR practitioners, Carol and Esther were convinced that the Canadian PR industry was ready for a national, independent boutique firm where best practices,  top performance, depth of knowledge and fantastic client service would define the offering. They believed that discerning clients were waiting for a smaller, faster, more flexible agency without an attitude.
And they were right.
Rebranded as energi PR in 2010,  the firm is a respected part of the PR landscape and was given Honourable Mention as a top Canadian PR firm in the 2013 Holmes Report.  Esther and Carol have attracted exceptional senior leadership that share their vision and high standards. Marlo Taylor, recently appointed Partner and GM joins the original duo in shaping energi PR's future.

energi PR is the Canadian affiliate of the Public Relations Global Network (PRGN) and a  founding member of the Canadian Council of Public Relations Firms.
