Who We Are
Established in 1995, Echo Communications has been developing sustainable public relations and marketing campaigns to support the food and beverage industries it proudly represents. Our full-service public relations and marketing agency is just a few miles from the Central Valley’s orchards and fields, from the ranches and wineries of the North Coast, from the artisan Bay Area bakeries and organic food companies that we serve. We are passionate about our work with these third and fourth generation growers, family farmers, local ranchers, processors and producers. In many ways, they are the stewards of our land and we take great pride in working with them to shape and promote their stories.
We LOVE OUR WORK and think it shows.
We once had a client who paid us in artisan fudge.
We deliver longevity and loyalty; no revolving doors here.
We take the business aspirations of our clients to heart.
And always, we know to never underestimate the power of a story told well.
Intimately involved in the day-to-day management of campaigns, Ginny leads the campaign development, media relations and crisis communications campaigns on behalf of Echo’s clients, while also enjoying her one-on-one relationships with clients, growers and processors. A lover of ideas, she enjoys the challenge of brand repositioning, the creative brainstorm of new product launches and the ever-changing arena of media relations. An advocate for a good story, she knows firsthand the power of a relevant tale and infuses every campaign with that essential element.
Ginny is the former Vice President of the East Bay Chapter of the Public Relations Society of America and has also served as Vice President of the Alumni Board at Saint Mary’s College. A guest lecturer in public relations classes around the Bay Area, Ginny has a Master of Arts degree in Literature from Mills College in Oakland and Bachelor of Arts degrees in both English and Communications from St. Mary’s College of California, and has written several public relations columns. When not writing or pitching stories or making coffee, Ginny most enjoys the passage of time with her two teenage children Jesse and Adam.
