Yes& is delighted to announce the acquisition of GreenSmith Public Relations as of September 1, 2019.

We have been looking for a public relations firm with the right capabilities and culture to help build our earned media capabilities. GreenSmith, which works “at the intersection of media and public policy,” comes with an impressive set of skills and connections, along with clients that have already indicated interest in our broader integrated marketing offerings and scale.
