Hmm, Where to begin with Mr. Tim Brown… The man is AMAZING! I have worked with him for over 10 years and he brings nothing but great things to the table. As a reporter with KSL & KUTV, I had the opportunity to interview many of his clients. I still remember the first interview Tim organized that got everyone talking about “The Kong Kone” at Macey’s grocery store. Moments like this set Tim apart and show his strength in delivering great PR to his clients and amazing live TV segments!

To say that Tim is a true professional and absolute Rockstar would be downplaying it. Tim has been an incredible partner and his expertise always shines through in every engagement. His acumen is something I have rarely seen in my career. His creativity and “outside-of-the-box thinking” has kept my team and me on our toes and has helped to proactively address potential communication challenges that most don’t have the foresight to anticipate. His is an innovator, along with being a creative force in the field.  His sense of humor and humility makes him a favorite with anyone he engages with.  Tim has personally helped me grow in my knowledge and skillset as well. I look forward to many more years of working together!
