We are a member of the Insurance Marketing and Communications Association (IMCA), for which Gary Kimball served as a board member.
Kimball Hughes Public Relations has improved the curb appeal of our real estate clients by staying ahead of industry trends and communicating across media and audiences. Our work has gone beyond traditional media outreach and advertorial to include video, interactive graphics and social media. From features on outstanding homes to local coverage of charitable initiatives, our team ensures our real estate clients stay top of mind with buyers, sellers and prospective agent recruits.
Since 1995, our agency has been supporting healthcare organizations’ communications needs, including Lehigh Valley Health Network, Valley Preferred and KidsPeace. Most recently, we helped St. Joseph Medical Center and the Healthcare Council of the Lehigh Valley blend social media and media outreach to communicate with diverse communities. We have also helped organizations develop messages around potential health crises, helping to diffuse unnecessary panic.
Schools, Camps and Child Care
Since 1996, agency president Gary Kimball has led a national crisis response service for AMSkier Insurance that has supported hundreds of children’s camp directors, private school owners and youth travel programs in preparing for and responding to crises affecting their populations. These crises have ranged from sexual abuse and security threats to natural disasters and public health issues, and were handled quickly and appropriately.
Building on this expertise, Kimball Hughes Public Relations now is a go-to source for leading day care centers, schools and other child care organizations – both building successful public relations programs and navigating difficult and delicate situations in a timely manner to suit each client’s specific needs.
Professional associations have unique communications needs, advocating for members, serving diverse needs and balancing the priorities of board members. With more than a decade’s experience with associations, our team specializes in helping craft strategic internal and external messages and build successful and award-winning campaigns. Our current clients include the AAMGA, TRSA, CIWA, ISOP, IICF and AMCOMP. Kimball Communications is a member of ASAE, The Center for Association Leadership.
We have worked with manufacturers large and small, helping them raise awareness of their brands to specific B2B and B2C audiences. Kimball Hughes Public Relations knows how to identify the right audiences and tactics for a manufacturer’s messages. Our successes include helping protect the reputation of a manufacturing company facing government sanctions, and getting the technology press excited about a tool that tends to fade into the background.
