How We Work

We take our mantra “good thinking” seriously – and literally.

Before we act, we ask lots of questions about our client’s environment, audiences, and competitors. We want to know why they’ve done what they’ve done and why they want what they want. We find out what they have to say and who they want to say it to. We ask about aspirations.


We then quickly analyze situations and define objectives… and just as quickly develop thoughtful and realistic plans that reach clear, measurable goals.  


And when it’s time to do the work, we do it – without a lot of unnecessary talk, hidden charges, or self-serving accolades.


We‘re driven and guided by our values: honesty, creativity, and thoughtfulness. They permeate our work and our relationships with clients, vendors, partners, and each other.


Sure, we’ve won lots of local and national awards for our work over the past 20 years, but what matters most to our clients – and therefore, to us – is what they’ve won: industry respect, customer and client recognition, and results.

 

Who We Are

We are writers and storytellers, chroniclers, and explainers. We are promoters and creative directors. We are guides and enthusiasts – working behind the scenes so our clients can be in front of their audiences.

Garrett Berberich
Account Executive

The title of Garrett’s graduate thesis was “Media and Public Relations: Cross Perceptions and the Role of Media Pitching.”

That explains the kind of focus, curiosity, and analysis that Garrett has brought to our clients for the past eight years. He understands what each client needs based on their current context and matches those needs with the desires and circumstances of their audiences, the media, and the partners who can contribute to their success. Our clients benefit from his thoughtful “what if…,” “why not…” and how can we…” approach. The results: successful promotions around the country, well-placed and prominent media coverage, and client events and communications that reach goals.

Garrett’s success has recognized by more than just our clients and the media. He was named the 2012 New Professional of the Year by the Maryland Chapter of the Public Relations Society of America.

Garrett can be reached at garrett@himmelrich.com or 410-528-5400 ext. 11


Dan Wiznitzer
Account Executive 

Dan’s interests and responsibilities have changed in his 12 years at Himmelrich PR as media and communications have changed. Where he once focused on placing stories about clients in newspapers and magazines, he now spends as much time on digital marketing.

Dan works on a wide-ranging portfolio of clients and issues; in one day, he could launch an online retargeting campaign for classical music performances or write a policy statement about migrant workers’ rights. One moment he might be coordinating a TV appearance for orchid growers, in the next he's analyzing website traffic for an educational nonprofit.
