John does an amazing job of bringing me new story angles all the time. When we are looking for information, he’s thorough, accurate and quick. He never leaves us hanging and that means that we cover his clients more often than those of other PR people who aren’t as efficient. Even if we don’t have a story that would be a good fit right away, he always remembers to follow up.
