About Ketner Group Communications

Who We Are

For more than 20 years, Ketner Group has helped retail technology companies build brand, drive demand and grow shareholder value through strategic PR programs.

We’re widely recognized as one of the leading PR agencies in retail technology. With a range of clients, from omni-channel commerce to AdTech, CPG and supply chain solution providers, our team knows and understands retail technology like no other PR agency.

Core services include media and analyst relations, content development, PR messaging and communications strategy, demand generation, social media management and more. Ketner Group has offices in Austin, Nashville and New York City, working with clients located in North America, UK and Europe.

What We Value

Good Vibes:

Our team is built of fun-loving and authentic people who understand the value of trusted relationships. A kind and respectful culture is central to our work, both with clients and within our organization.

Rock-solid Collaboration:

We are a supportive and encouraging group who works well with our partners and clients to create new ideas and achieve shared goals that make the biggest impact.

Relentless Curiosity:

We are dedicated, passionate experts in the retail ecosystem who strive to expand our knowledge and create great opportunities for our colleagues, clients and partners.

“When I founded Ketner Group, I set out to create a PR agency where we surpass client expectations, treat media like valued partners, and put great importance on work/life balance for our team. These core values have held true as we’ve grown into a thriving PR agency that represents retail technology innovators throughout the U.S., Canada and Europe.

Our clients are change agents and disruptors in retail technology, and we are fiercely committed to their success. Whether it’s growth, market recognition or acquisition, we focus on helping our clients realize their goals. We build creative PR and communications programs that are tailored to every client, and we pride ourselves on driving results that prove the value of PR. In return, many of our clients consider us extended members of their marketing team and refer us to their friends and partners — the highest compliment of all.

We work hard, but we know that work isn’t all there is to life. We value every team member, respect everyone’s opinion and work hard to make Ketner Group an exceptional PR agency. We’re a place where team members can grow professionally, have the satisfaction of doing great work, and find a long-term home.

Welcome to Ketner Group. We’re different by design, and we intend to keep it that way.”
