Mark is driven, passionate and gives everything he does 110%. As a PR Consultant for PlentyOfFish, Mark secured excellent coverage for the company including numerous national TV placements. Having worked as a former journalist and TV producer for a number of years, Mark truly understands the ingredients of a great story. His intuition as to which story angles will appeal to journalists and which won't, is unlike any PR professional I've met. It was a pleasure working with Mark and I highly recommend him to any company looking for media relations and general PR support.
Sarah Gooding, PR & Communications Manager at PlentyOfFish
I am thrilled to be a client of Macias PR. Mark is the real deal when it comes to public relations professionals. His company is dynamic and responsive to my needs as a customer. Mark, himself, is very creative person, who comes up with fascinating angles on his pitches. That's most likely because he listens. He takes the time to hear what I think is important to get out into the media and he finds a way to make it enticing. We have never presented a problem to Mark for which he hasn't found a creative solution. As I have heard said of PR, you are only as good as your contact list. That is certainly true of Mark, who's success rate in pitching stories is the best I have ever seen. I am a happy customer.
Scott Watson, Chief Marketing Officer at Provident Loan Society
I have had the pleasure of working with Mark extensively this year. He and his company did a wonderful job helping Burke attain strategic media placements in print, TV and digital arenas. He is terrific to work with and I recommend him and his company highly for public relations.
Richard Sgaglio, Senior Administrator at Burke Rehabilitation Hospital
Engaging Mark's services was one of my better ideas in 2014. It took a while to find the right person who could provide the specific services I was looking for and Mark hit the nail on the head. He has a deep background in the Public/Media Relations industry and offers keen insights and creative ideas. Mark provides a wide range of solutions and I highly recommend reaching out to Mark if you're in search of PR support, Media relations, Marketing consulting, Web and Brand Development, etc.
James Sanford, CFA, Portfolio Manager at Sag Harbor Advisors
Mark and his team have been and continue to be a true asset to our San Antonio Chapter of the Veterans Association of Real Estate Professionals, a 501c3 non-profit. As a result of his firms work, we have been able to market directly to our target audience via print, television, and radio, making our Veterans Housing Summit attendance greater with each event. Mark is truly professional and, most importantly, personable. He has become, in my mind, a friend in NY who is just as passionate about our cause as I am and I look forward to hiring him again for our next event!
Art Ramirez, Senior Loan Officer at WR Starkey Mortgage
I have had the pleasure of working with Mark on Weepo. I think very highly of the work Mark and his crew have done so far. He is easy to work with, responsive, insightful and perhaps most important, worth every dollar. He did not waste any time. He focused on practical goals and practical answers so we could move on to the next thing and create action plans and results. They secured stories for us quickly with major TV, newspapers and online publications. Amazing work and tremendous results!! Highly recommended!
Roy Lugasi, Weepo, CEO & Co-Founder
Mark and Macias PR did an excellent job for our firm! Because of his efforts, we were quoted in publications such as the Wall Street Journal, Private Equity International, Bloomberg Business, Fox Business and many others. He helped increase our brand visibility and our reputation as experts in our field. I would recommend Mark and his firm to anyone looking for PR services!
Cody Boghetich, Director of Marketing and Operations at Blue River Partners
Mark Macias is a smart and road tested professional who can help take your business to the next level. If you've grown tired of "marketing gurus" who have great ideas that never get picked up by the media, it's time to talk to Mark. As a former journalist, he understands what drives a journalist. He consistently delivers a well-crafted pitch to a reporter with the elements needed to produce a true, turnable, story. I worked side by side with him as my producer at CBS, and it's a pleasure to have him as an asset on the other side of the equation. Thank you, Mark for always bringing great stories to the table!
Kirstin Cole, Reporter, Channel 11
I have never met anybody that has understands media quite as well as Mark Macias which is why I would hire nobody else for my pr needs. Having a background in Media Mark's insight, knowledge, and drive, have delivered consistent results which directly resulted in increased exposure, and commissions while at the same time being regarded as an industry expert. It’s a win-win no matter how you look at it.
Jimmy Vercellino, Veterans Association of Real Estate Professionals (VAREP)
Mark has been a great asset to our company. PR is critical to the success of any business and Mark makes it easy by being our full PR department. I would highly recommend any business large and small to use Macias PR.
Mark Mascia, President & CEO Mascia Development
Mark Macias is an expert in PR and video production, as well as, several other fields. He has the utmost integrity and I had the pleasure of hiring him for several important projects over the last 4 years. His fee was very reasonable, I thought, especially with his wealth of experience and media contacts. He was very easy to work with and always accessible.
Chuck Anania, President of Roof4Roof
We could not have pulled off such a successful event without your dogged determination to get our event noticed by the local TV media. We gave you less than 7 days to pull off a miracle and you did just that. Our Veterans Housing Summit was a HUGE success. Of those who attended, dozens of veterans were qualified for VA home loans, on the spot, this past Saturday. The four lenders we had on site successfully provided each veteran with a copy of their VA Certificate of Eligibility and either qualified them for their loan or we were able to partner the vet with a counselor who could help the veteran close the gap between loan approval and whatever stood in his/her way. It was truly a GREAT event.
G-II Varrato II, Veterans Association of Real Estate Professionals (VAREP)
Mark is outstanding, he work with you to come up with a targeted marketing campaign that provides the best results. I recommend Mark and his team to anyone looking for a Marketing professional.
Jerry Castanos, 3D Heights
Mark is an incredibly dedicated and creative force in the Public Relations world. As a PR consultant for PlentyOfFish, Mark consistently went above and beyond what was expected of him. Always up for a brainstorm or a pitch rewrite, Mark’s agility paired with his background as a journalist consistently landed strong placements for us over the years we worked together. I would strongly recommend him to any business looking to bolster their presence on the international stage.
Shannon Smith, Public Relations Manager with PlentyOfFish
I am very happy with the publicity that Macias PR got for my real estate agency. Mark and his team were able to get stories for us with the local, national, international and real estate trade publications. His team is creative, hard-working and never stops trying. Mark is a true professional. He explained every step of the way the reasons behind his PR approach and why it would work. I recommend Mark and his PR firm to any service sector industry looking to raise the profile of their business.
Smitha Ramchandani, CEO of SR Real Estate Group
Mark really makes his network and knowledge as a former Executive Producer at NBC work for his clients. His manner of presenting his client companies to journalists resonates with them and the companies get coverage as a result. We were very pleased with Mark's work.
Chiranjeev Bordoloi, CEO of TopPatch
I highly recommend Mark Macias for any company in need of a solid PR and brand promotion. Mark has extensive contacts in the news community and is able to deliver a correct, professional and clear message to the audience. WSJ, NYT, FT as well as international TV channels broadcasted my interviews, sometimes on a short notice, as a result of Mark's efforts.
