“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.”
