Get Noticed With an Expert PR Firm in Phoenix

HMA Public Relations has a long history in Arizona; launched in 1980, we are the oldest continuously operating public relations firm in the state. And yes, we are certainly proud of that, but what makes us even more proud are the long-time clients that have been part of company’s growth all these years.

Working across a variety of industries such as professional services, real estate and finance, healthcare, nonprofit, government, tribal affairs and restaurant/hospitality/retail, we work side-by-side with business and community leaders that have been instrumental in the growth of their communities.

As the public relations industry evolves, so do we. Our PR firm in Phoenix has full-service capabilities, and our team understands how all aspects of communications blend together for a comprehensive strategy that nets out results tied to measurable goals.

We are a founding member of the Public Relations Global Network (PRGN), which currently has more than 50 member agencies in countries across North America, South America, Europe and the Middle East, Asia, Africa and Australia. PRGN is comprised of independent, owner-operated public relations and communications agencies in order to share expertise and resources on a global level while still offering our clients the attention and integrity that comes from working with a small business.

Much like good ‘ol MC Hammer broke it down with his “Hammer Time” more than three decades ago, our version – HMA Time, our agency’s blog – has been breaking it down since 2008. As PR practitioners of varying ages and experience levels, each of our personal blog posts gives us the chance to sound off about our industry and related topics. We post daily on communications trends, business best practices, thought leadership, how to’s and more.

To quote Mr. Hammer once more, this blog is “Too legit. Too legit to quit.”
