GROW, Share, Influence, Lead.

We’re a different breed of bear. As friends and former journalists, we launched Bear Icebox Communications to be a different kind of communications firm. We can help with everything from getting you that placement in the publication of your dreams to making your website something to be proud of. It’s not just about landing you stories in target media—it’s also about training you to effectively share your story with the public. PR is a two-way street between client and agency and we provide the infrastructure to build that road with you.

"If anyone reading this doesn't have a Public Relations company I would highly recommend Bear Icebox Communications. They are a small firm that gives the personal attention of a small company with the service of a big company that has great connections!"
