Experience


A HALF-CENTURY OF PUBLIC RELATIONS EXPERIENCE

The founders of USPR have spent their entire careers working in the communication and media fields. Combined, they have led their own firms for nearly a half-century, and have worked for some of the nation's most well-known brands. They've planned and managed world record-breaking events, coordinated media tours for spokespeople, celebrities and top executives and led teams on national marketing campaigns, consistently landing stories for their clients in some of the nation's most popular news outlets. 


Unified Strategies takes the new playing fields of social media and old fields of traditional Public Relations and promotions to just the right place together. Strategically smart, tactically quick, with crystal clear implementation. If you want results, ROI you can boast of, ask Bob Schiers and colleagues to take on your assignment or ask them what they’d do to engage, delight and make your enterprise memorable. Bob and team achieve with integrity, accuracy and shameless kindness. I’ve counted on the team for more than 15 years. I can’t imagine doing my job without them.
— Roberta MacDonald. SVP. Cabot Creamery Cooperative
Over the years, I have come to know Bob Schiers and Susan Hamburg as excellent Public Relations consultants, insightful marketing communications partners and skilled on-site managers for events and product initiatives that I managed in prior positions at two Fortune 500 companies. Both Susan and Bob are always energetic, reliable, results-driven and creative in their approaches to goals. They’ve been on a number of my project teams and now that they are teaming up together, I would only expect their combined efforts to grow in strength.
— Karen Raskopf. Chief Communications Officer. Dunkin' Brands, Inc.
I’ve known and worked with Susan and Bob for many years during my career in communications and marketing at three global companies. I always knew I could depend on them to turn in top-rated work and excellent results in a wide range of marketing and communications initiatives. From pre-event publicity to managing media on site during informational and promotional activities, Susan and Bob are superb professionals, personable people and always pushing for the best outcomes. I always know I can count on their enthusiasm and skills!
— Kevin Gardner. Senior Director Global Responsibility Communications. Wal-Mart Stores, Inc.
Very few things give me more joy than saying nice comments about people I have worked with and respect. The USPR team are everything you could want in a PR agency. Kind, responsive, effective and fun to work with whether you are in crisis mode or on a long-term project. I wouldn’t hesitate for a second to hire them.
— Adam Schwartz. Founder. The Cooperative Way
