About Us

City Road Comms is a PR agency that specialises in using research, data and expertly crafted content to secure impactful media coverage for our clients.

When we were founded in 2012 we worked exclusively with finance and investment companies, including private equity houses. Over time, we began working with the startups those companies invested in, too.

This means we’re now great at two things: PR for finance firms, and getting vast amounts of coverage for little-known SMEs looking to scale up.

Data is at the heart of our PR strategies.

It’s how we ensure you’re always newsworthy.

Unique quantitative research provides our clients with insights into pertinent issues and trends within their marketplace, which translates into interesting stories we share with our huge network of journalist contacts.

Combining research with superbly written content ensures our clients are seen as experts in their industry – they become brands people trust. And ultimately, this means our PR will deliver commercial value.

My faith in PR being effective for a services company such as ours was all but lost until we started working with CRC. They've over-delivered from day one. The volume and quality of coverage has been phenomenal, and they’ve succeeded in positioning us as a thought leader in our field. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

We’d never worked with a PR agency prior to CRC, but it’s proved a great decision. They’ve created so many interesting angles to promote our work and get us in ideal publications, while their web and social content also helps us engage with our audience more effectively. It’s a pleasure working with such a professional, responsive team.

We entrusted CRC with promoting the launch of Mynurva. Their use of research and data ensured we received vast amounts of relevant media exposure, which in turn meant consumers learnt all about our product, values and expertise. I’d highly recommend other early-stage businesses partner with this agency.
