Teak Media + Communication is a B Corp Certified public relations firm with a singular goal: to help socially responsible companies and nonprofits achieve widespread recognition and increase their revenue. As former reporters, producers, and event planners employing a proprietary journalistic process, Teak Media works closely with each client to develop campaigns that intrigue the media, draw attention to important work, inspire others, and drive growth.
For more than 20 years, the company’s mission has been to help the world notice those who are improving it. They do this by empowering responsible companies and nonprofits to extend their reach.
In addition to promoting nonprofit organizations, foundations, and socially responsible companies through traditional and social media, Teak Media provides media training, content communications and marketing, cause marketing, publication writing, stewardship and event support and overall crisis communications strategy.
Teak Media has been a Certified B Corp since 2013. As such, the company is accountable to a triple bottom line: people, the planet, and profits. From Ben & Jerry’s to Patagonia, B Corps are a force intent on using the power of business to make the world a better place. Teak Media is also a founding member of the Boston Chapter of Conscious Capitalism. In short, Teak Media walks its talk and clients can be assured they are working with a values-led firm that is dedicated to their mission.
Teak Media makes a difference in terms of increased revenue and public awareness; companies and organizations hire the firm year after year. Long term clients include or have included Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, the New England Aquarium, Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Little Leaf Farms, OEKO-TEX, Fidelity Bank, and many others. When the company takes on the responsibility of promoting an organization, it aligns with its mission. The passion and energy Teak Media brings to its work sets the company apart.
Cause marketing and public relations have evolved beyond promotions and corporate service initiatives, according to Teak Media Founder and President Jackie Herskovitz Russell. “Consumers now seek deeper connections with brands and organizations, and they actively participate in shaping brand reputation. This is all great news for Conscious Capitalists,” Russell says. “When I started Teak Media, society left the hard work of changing the world to nonprofits. Now businesses understand they must play a role and consumers vote with their wallets. More people make purchasing decisions based on companies’ values.”
