(Boston, Mass.) Benchmark Strategies is starting the new year with a bigger team and expanded services.

The Boston-based firm has years of proven success, from public sector business development to state and municipal public affairs, and economic development consulting.

Through the challenges of a pandemic, Benchmark pivoted and doubled its staff in just the last two years.

Now, Benchmark is positioned to be a leader in public relations across New England with the addition of Associate Shelly Andrews.

Andrews spent a decade as an assignment editor in major market newsrooms, including Boston and Washington, D.C. She comes to Benchmark from WBZ-TV.

She joins former TV news reporter and anchor Elysia Rodriguez, VP of Media Strategy. The two former journalists offer a public relations approach built from insider expertise and an extensive network of media contacts.

The Benchmark team goes beyond pitching your story to media outlets, writers, and journalists. We will help you craft your story and develop both short-term and long-term strategies to share that story through the channels best suited for your goals.
