Himmelrich PR, Good Thinking.

Position Available

We just landed some cool new projects – so we’re hiring!

We are looking to bolster our team with an experienced public relations pro – someone who will work with our clients to find their unique story angles, compellingly share these stories with the media, and develop media relationships that result in coverage.

The person in this position will manage client relationships, including planning and providing strategic direction. They should be a strong writer and be able to deftly balance working independently while being a proactive leader for client teams.

This is a full-time position but we’re pretty flexible about hours and where you work. (The only thing we are not too flexible about is experience – we will only be looking at candidates who have at least a couple years of experience securing media coverage.)

If this sounds like something you might be interested in, let us know. Resumes can be sent to jobs@himmelrich.com. (No phone calls, please)

“Going Big with Basque”

That was the headline of the Washington Post review (yesterday in print, online here) of La Cuchara.

Last week, the restaurant’s sommelier was featured in a Baltimore Business Journal story titled “How I created an award-winning wine program at La Cuchara.”

Not a bad start to the work week and the Fall season.

Long Term Success

Happy anniversary… to us.

We just inked our agreement with the Maryland Home & Garden Show to promote its fall show at the Maryland State Fairgrounds. This is the 10th year we are working with the show producers.

But it’s not the first time we’ll be working with the show’s featured entertainment: we go waaay back with Twiggy the Waterskiing Squirrel, a popular attraction at the boat shows we promote.

Gala Season

Nonprofits run by smart, passionate people and doing important, meaningful work have a big impact. And there’s nothing a like good gala to remind you just how big… or to remind us how much we like helping them. We enjoyed promoting these great client events in the last 10 days:

The Edward A. Myerberg Center celebrated its 40th anniversary and honored its founding president at its annual spring event. The evening raised funds to support programs for older adults, including 8,000 meals served each year to low-income seniors.

At the Young Audiences “Taste the Arts” gala, 650 guests dined on specialties from 20+ restaurants, honored arts advocates and supported the organization’s programs that bring teaching artists into 450+ schools and community centers throughout the state.

On Monday night, the inaugural Heart of the School Awards exceeded all expectations – 550 guests from Baltimore’s business and philanthropic communities honored Baltimore City public school principals (more than 100 of them were in attendance) and awarded 11 principals with funds to support their schools.

The Ups and Downs of PR

Sometimes you need to bring something down in order to build something up.

That was the case this morning as the Maryland Film Festival began demolition of the Chicken Box building at the corner of Charles and North. The site will be a new addition to the historic Parkway Theatre, which will open a year from now as the Parkway Film Center.

We like boosting up our clients. Today, we liked seeing them brought down.
