Our History

We’ve been around the block.  Here’s more about our history as Orlando’s oldest public relations firm:

1984

The legacy began.  Roger Pynn and Joe Curley recognized a need for a consulting firm that would provide strategic solutions to Florida businesses, and started with a little but simple pledge:  Tell clients – based on our experience and the data available to us – what they need to hear, rather than what they want to hear.

Florida Cypress Gardens signs on as the firm’s first client.  Relationships with accounting giant Coopers & Lybrand (now PricewaterhouseCoopers), one of the state’s largest law firms Akerman, Senterfitt & Eidson (now Akerman LLP), and the Central Florida Blood Bank (now OneBlood) quickly followed.

1985

Current University of Central Florida instructor, Joan McCain, was hired as the first employee.  (Roger Pynn “facilitated” a first date for Joan with her future husband … but that’s another story.)

1990

Curley & Pynn managed public relations for the grand opening of Universal Studios Florida, initiating a nearly 30-year relationship with Universal Orlando Resort.
