Coyne PR is one of the Top 10 Independent PR Firms in the United States. Or as we like to say, we’re a firmly independent firm. It allows us to be free thinkers. Free to take chances and think about our clients’ challenges in unexpected ways.

Founded in 1991 by Tom Coyne, we have grown steadily with a reputation for big creative thinking, hard work and a deep dedication to client service. Our integrated approach and capabilities to effectively convey messages across earned, shared, paid and owned media for our clients have garnered more than 1,000 industry awards.

We’re proud of our client roster, which includes many of the most respected companies in the world such as The Walt Disney Company, Hard Rock International, Shell Oil, Chrysler, Timberland, Pfizer, VTech and the United States Golf Association to name-drop a few.

So, what’s our secret? Our people.

From day one, Tom made it his mission to treat people with respect and create a great working environment. The agency’s mission statement is as true today as when he first wrote it over 20 years ago.

Mission Statement

Our mission is not to be the best agency, but the best one to work for. If we are the best place to work, we will retain the best people. If we have the best people, we will attract the best clients. If we have the best people and clients, how can we not be the best agency?

Mission accomplished? We like to think so.

Coyne PR has won BEST PLACE TO WORK awards from PR Week, Ad Age, Holmes Report, NJ Biz and others.

Our core philosophies

Attention is earned. Trust is earned. Loyalty is earned.

At Coyne PR, we believe your best story starts with earned media. But we don’t take the traditional route to get there. Coyne is not working with anyone else’s playbook. It was established more than 25 years ago when Tom Coyne graduated from college and decided to create a different type of company.


We don’t have divisions. We have multiplications.

When you bring an eclectic group of minds to the table, you get thinkers who look at your challenges through various lenses. Seasoned public relations professionals, communications strategists, digital experts, advertising creatives and social media specialists thrown together in the same room make quite a stew.


We work backwards.

We always begin with the end in mind with our Results First process. We ask you where you want to be in business, where you want to be in reputation and where you want to be in the minds of your constituents. By doing this, our team gets to understand your goals, your stretch goals and what will help your organization stand apart from the rest.


We’re local. We’re global.

In addition to offices in New Jersey and New York, our footprint spans across 115 cities, in 49 countries on six continents through our partnership in The Worldcom Public Relations Group.


Meet the middle bear.

Big enough with more than 160 professionals to be a top ten independent agency in the US. Small enough that each of our practice areas act as a boutique with senior leadership actually working day-to-day on your business. We do more than give good meetings. We give clients every day support that drives our average client retention rate to nearly seven years. So we must be doing something just right.
