As part of a national expansion, Stryker-Munley Group, a New York City-based integrated public relations and marketing communication agency, recruited established firms in business centers nationwide and reached an agreement in Pittsburgh with Jeff Krakoff ’86, owner of Krakoff Communications, Inc.

With this expansion, SMG now has offices in Pittsburgh, but also New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Memphis, northern New Jersey, Sacramento, and St. Louis. These offices currently work with a number of large, national brands as well as small start-ups and everything in between.

Krakoff is now owner and president of Stryker-Munley Group–Pittsburgh, LLC, as well as Krakoff Communications, Inc. The firms will share people, office space and other resources to provide clients with a wide range of expertise from a number of senior-level professionals across the United States. SMG is uniquely positioned with its senior-level experts to develop the high-level strategy and implement the necessary tactics using the latest methods and techniques.

Krakoff said, “The clients I’ve spoken to are extremely intrigued by our national network of top public relations and marketing communications experts. We even received positive feedback from a new business prospect and have been named a finalist for their business as a result. Broader depth of experience and office bandwidth is something our clients have requested, and, with this announcement, we will deliver and then some.”

Mike Jamieson, founder of SMG and president of Stryker-Munley Group–New York, said, “Our combination of expertise and pricing structure enables us to work for a variety of clients large and small. The SMG process is streamlined for clients to work through their nearest local SMG office or with any of the nationwide offices based on specific needs and expertise.”
