New York’s Best

Retail Tech PR Agency

New York City has long been the center of all things retail. But with the recent addition of concepts like Hudson Yards, Shopify’s Showfields and an ever-growing number of experiential stores, New York’s retail innovation boom is in full swing. And some of the world’s most promising and innovative retail technology companies call it home. So do we.

Ketner Group has exclusively served high-growth retail technology vendors for nearly 30 years. Our deep network and industry knowledge are here to help New York’s retail innovators tell their stories and build brand equity – in the Big Apple, across the country and around the world.

Whether you are building New York’s next homegrown disruptor, setting up shop in the big city to enter the U.S. market for the first time, or just need to get in front of New York’s most influential retail media, Ketner Group New York has you covered.

The Ketner Group Advantage

We know retail technology. We know New York.

In the city that never sleeps, we know how to cut through the noise to help startups and tech giants alike become the thought leaders behind the future of retail, which they’re at the heart of creating.

Our New York director, Adrienne Newcomb, has deep roots in retail and enterprise technology. She has spent more than four years at Ketner Group and previously worked for a national, NYC-based agency that supported one of the biggest names in the tech industry. Nationwide, our agency has a blossoming expertise in hospitality tech and advertising tech, and a leadership team that cut its teeth serving a host of Fortune 500 brands.

Emerging startups and publicly traded international companies alike have benefited from working with us to increase visibility and authority among key audiences. We have managed countless product launches, crafted rock solid corporate messaging platforms, and overseen market entries and expansions. No task is too big for our growing team.

But that's not why you should work with us.

It’s not lip service for us when we say we’re an extension of our client teams. In tough talkin’ New York City, we’re a fast-growing PR firm committed to creating a personal experience with every client. We build partnerships that last – just ask our clients that have been with us for more than 10 years.

Every client at Ketner Group has direct access to our executive team and, unlike our competitors,our senior leadership is actively involved in daily account management and execution. With an average employee tenure of more than six years, our teams are consistent, and once you meet your new partners, you can count on the team staying that way.

If you’re in New York or coming for a visit, we’d love to meet for coffee or drinks before a Broadway show, a favorite Ketner Group outing, to tell you more about our wide range of services and track record of success.

We know every company in every city has different needs and opportunities.

That’s why, as a full-service public relations firm, we offer a robust suite of traditional and digital communications services that enables us to build the program that’s right for you.

But because your audience isn’t just at events and reading the news, we make sure your owned media is working as hard as you do. Our content marketing team is committed to turning your unique perspectives and customer stories into strategic campaigns that drive a measurable impact on your business, in any market, every time – across all channels.
