“Karen was our Public Relations Director for nearly eight years and during that time she was always the consummate PR professional. She brought an infectious passion and positive attitude to work which inspired creativity and collaboration. She consistently offered strategic insights and ideas and remained cool under pressure in this fast-paced environment. She holds herself to high standards, and doesn’t stop until she has delivered. Over the years Karen has built incredibly strong relationships with the media who appreciate her intelligence, knowledge and passion for wine and spirits, and her personable and collaborative manner. This resulted in a continuous stream of positive national media placements across our portfolio. Karen genuinely loves meeting people, making personal connections, and building relationships. I believe it’s what makes her an effective communicator and marketer, never afraid to ask questions and contribute her ideas. She's bright, fearless, and kind and was well-respected throughout our company. I always enjoyed working with Karen and I am excited to see what the future holds as she launches her own PR consultancy.”

"In a media-driven world that is increasingly inundated with meaningless buzzwords and hollow jargon, Karen focuses on the most important term of all: Relationships. Using her skill as a storyteller to excite journalists about the brands in her portfolio, Karen intuitively builds an authentic connection with the people who can help her organically spread the word. We have been fortunate to work with Karen on a variety of activations and initiatives over several years, and her ability to understand who we are and what we do enables her to hand-tailor the information we need in order to craft a pitch or write a story."

"Kind, thoughtful, inquisitive and deeply knowledgeable about the food, beverage and wellness space, Karen's experience is unparalleled only by her enthusiastic and energetic personality. From the start of the relationship, brands and clients immediately understand the zest she brings to their team; sensing not only will the particular activation or product exceed expectations, but that they have earned a life-long ally and partner in the space for years to come."

"Karen Brennan is a force of nature. She ran Public Relations for Cetaphil during the time I managed the brand in 2010-2013, significantly growing the brand’s coverage and number of annual awards, which helped grow the brand’s awareness. She helped lead several key product launches, working with multiple agencies to integrate consumer, digital, social and professional communication. She is that rare executive that can think strategically to have a “blue sky” vision that can be executed tactically against budget to deliver results. Karen is also a joy to work with – someone who is not afraid to push back to advise the client if she thinks an idea has not been fully thought through and could benefit from other considerations. She makes good great."
