Communications is an excellent
firm, highly respected and sought after
because of the caliber and effectiveness
of its work.
Lynn McReynolds and Kim
Elek are smart,
thoughtful, action-oriented individuals;
together they bring their clients rich
perspective, carefully considered strategies,
and creative and effective action plans.
They are clear communicators and excellent
working colleagues. I have a recent and
As Executive Director of Cable in the Classroom,
I hired Lynn and Kim to help us with every
aspect of a complex new awards project.
Although the cable industry sponsors dozens
of awards programs, the nature and structure
of this one was completely new for the
industry. We needed to sort out messaging;
introduce the industry to something completely
new; get buy-in from inside and outside
the system; in short, think all the communications
through from scratch, and from an uphill
position! Moreover, changes in the industry
leadership made for changes along the way
in available resources and interest.
The program continues on a successful path,
largely due to the ingenuity, adaptability,
and steadfastness of Lynn and Kim. Their
ability to quickly grasp essential elements
and goals is impressive. Their original
ideas and concepts were exciting, fresh,
energetic, and very strategic. Subsequent
reversions were nothing less.
Their standards for their own work -- creatively
and professionally -- are high. No one
works with more flexibility or a better
sense of humor.
Obviously, I can't recommend McReynolds
Elek highly enough. I have a list of CPB
needs to talk to them about. They make
the company stronger and smarter.

"The Met: Live in HD" is the company’s groundbreaking series of operas transmitted live, in high-definition, to movie theaters, colleges and universities, and arts institutions around the world and is one of the most influential audience development tools initiated by the Met in the last few years. Not only does the series promote the Met's artistic programs to a much wider audience, but it increases the appeal and reach of opera in the U.S. and around the world.
McReynolds Elek was hired to help launch the series in more than 100 U.S. locations. Press attention in local markets was crucial to the future success of the series (the Met just announced its third consecutive season). The unprecedented amount of regional press generated by the team created a groundswell of media attention for the Met, and we enlisted them again for the second season. The consistently positive press coverage has deepened our connection to music lovers across the country and around the world and helped to create an indelible global brand.
