About Us

Near 30 years of experience in value-driven public relations and marketing services for worldwide clients.

About Us

Rhodes Communications, Inc. was formed in 1983, at a time when the state of the art in office equipment was a self-correcting typewriter, a telephone and a telex machine. The first PCs were just starting to appear, and fax machines were rarely seen.

Type was set manually, and page layouts were pasted up on cardboard with overlays. Press releases were mailed with black and white glossy photos. A lot has evolved since then, and we’ve cheerfully embraced those changes through the years. But some things have not changed. We still build our business on old-fashioned virtues of hard work, attention to detail, ethical business practice and an unwavering dedication to client service. The scope of our business is worldwide.
