Five Things You May Not Know About Linhart PR

  1. They’ve got history. The firm celebrated a milestone anniversary this year – it’s been 20 years since Sharon Linhart founded the firm. Today, the independent, Colorado-based firm has 23 team members serving about 25 regional, national and global clients. Another historical attribute? Their downtown Denver office is almost 150 years old. The Baur’s Building was previously home to the Baur Confectionary Company, whose founder claimed to have scooped the very first ice cream soda.
  2. They share a backyard with many of their clients. They partner with companies nationwide, but their Denver headquarters makes them neighbors with clients, including: Chipotle, FirstBank of ColoradoJohns ManvilleMWH Global, now part of Stantec, White Wave FoodsBall Corp., and Mountain States Employers Council.
  3. Their team stays and grows with the firm. While it might not come as surprise that employees have moved across the country to work in Denver – continually ranked one of the best places to work and live – the career paths and tenure of many team members are truly impressive. About a quarter of the team started as an intern, with nearly half of the employees averaging 5-10+ years at the firm.
  4. They have a BIG sweet tooth. Average yearly consumption of M&Ms (you can find them hiding in their snack closet) is 60 pounds. After all, they do work in a former confectionary building. On the healthier side, yearly consumption of LaCroix Sparkling Water is close to 3,750 cans. And, on the third Wednesday of nearly every month, Linhart PR hosts “Inside Scoop,” an informal gathering – complete with free scoops of ice cream! – for job seekers, recent graduates and career changers to learn more about public relations and the Denver communications market.
  5. They’re proud of their award-winning workplace and the work they do every day for their clients. Among the honors, for the second consecutive year, Linhart PR was recognized in the category of Public Relations by ColoradoBiz magazine with its 2016 Best of Colorado Business Choice award. Linhart PR is also regularly listed on national Best Places To Work in Public Relations lists.
