KBPR is an independent public relations consultancy that partners with advertising agencies, media/marketing companies and creative entrepreneurs to help raise visibility of their businesses, people and standout work. We specialize in creating strategic PR programs that are results-driven and tailored to specific business goals. We all lead busy lives; we don’t have time to throw everything against a wall to see what sticks.



Kristen Bryan is the founder of KBPR. With 15+ years’ experience in advertising, media + marketing, Kristen has earned a reputation as an excellent champion for her clients and one who continually gets results. 

Over the course of her career, she has worked with a variety of recognized agencies across the U.S., including David&Goliath, GSD&M, Johannes Leonardo, DDB North America and Red Tettemer O'Connell + Partners, among others.

Prior to launching KBPR in 2016, Kristen spent nine years at DiGennaro Communications, a New York-based PR agency specializing in strategic communications within the ad, media and marketing space. She holds a bachelor’s degree in English Literature from Johns Hopkins University. 

When she’s not working to make her clients famous, she is living in happy chaos with her husband and two young kiddos.


What WE DO


We’re not about blasting a million reporters with the same pitch in the hopes of getting one bite.

At KBPR, we immerse ourselves in your business, identify your unique story and communicate it strategically to the right audiences. Every PR program is executed against a PR plan that is created just for you based on your goals and objectives. 



Are you creating kick-ass work but not getting the recognition you deserve from the industry and your peers? (Your parents are proud of you, but let’s face it, they don’t really know what you do.)

We’ll help you craft your story, spread the word about your best work and news, and introduce you to the best reporters who can influence your business. 



Have a strong passion or provocative POV that you want to tell the world about?

Together we’ll brainstorm and develop meaningful content in a way that gets you noticed without being too self-promotional. We’ll help turn your thoughtful POVs into bylines/op-eds, expert commentary and speaking proposals.
