Background

Power PR was founded as Power Marketing in 1991 by John W. Elliott in Hermosa Beach, California. A journalist and editor with over 35 years of successful marketing experience, Elliott used his sales and marketing acumen to build Power Marketing into a successful, full service marketing company.

In April 1995, Elliott narrowed the focus of Power Marketing and created a unique Marketing Public Relations Program. His idea was to create a completely new category — Marketing Public Relations — and product publicity that would guarantee results and sales lead generation for industrial and business to business firms.

On December 31, 1995, the company was incorporated under its new name, Power PR, and by January 1997 had moved to offices in Torrance, California. During the period from December 31, 1995 to the present, Power PR has generated more than 15,000 published articles for its clients. This is more than any other product publicity firm in the country.
