Wills & Associates is a public relations firm with offices in Baltimore and Bethesda, Maryland. Now in its third decade, Wills & Associates continues to build on its reputation for providing outstanding, full-service public relations services. The firm has worked with hundreds of organizations worldwide, from multi-national corporations, to technology start-ups, to non profits. Each turned to Wills & Associates to achieve the same basic goals: to use PR to better define their organization, and to deliver their messages to the audiences that matter most.
As a full-service PR firm, Wills & Associates provides media relations, government relations, community relations, crisis communications, business networking, media training, fundraising services, internal communications, writing services, and events production capabilities.
The firm was founded by George Wills in 1978 with the mission of combining the personalized attention, expertise, and reasonable cost of a smaller firm with the broad range of services and wide scope of influence of a much larger firm. George had previously served as a vice president of the DC office of PR giant Hill & Knowlton, and was also the director of public relations for The Johns Hopkins University, under JHU President Milton Eisenhower.
In the last dozen years, under president and COO Brad Wills, the firm has developed a specialty in working with technology businesses in particular. The firm’s technology practice has matured right along with the technologies themselves, beginning when the Internet and wireless revolutions were in their infancy. Since then, the firm has worked with a wide range of tech businesses, from software developers, to information security specialists, to wireless carriers and network engineers. The experience the firm has accumulated within the tech arena has allowed us cultivate strong ties into the tech media community. Wills & Associates’ knowledge base and network of tech media contacts continues to grow with each emerging technology.
