Who We Are
Cathy Callegari Public Relations, Inc. is not your typical “one size fits all” public relations agency. We have a track record of succeeding where others have not. Our experience and satisfied clients speak volumes for our capabilities. We rely on sound business practices that incorporate market research, branding and communications strategies, creative thinking, and problem-solving techniques designed to achieve and exceed pre-determined client goals. Our team is comprised of professionals who are proven leaders in their respective disciplines. Together we provide marketing supported, publicity programs designed and conceptualized to meet a client’s individualized needs. Programs and projects are geared toward branding, creating demand, opening new markets, launching companies, products and technologies, and generating sales.
Cathy Callegari was the “lady” behind Lady Liberty who represented our company Lehrer McGovern during the renovation of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island and told the story to all Americans to rekindle the patriotic pride in two of the most historic monuments in our country. Without her, much of the story would remain untold.

We introduced a new tee-shirt based on sun-sensitive inks in December and selected Cathy Callegari to take us on our PR journey to support the sales and marketing of this new line. We began with one retailer – JC Penney in only 90 of its sunbelt or resort stores. Within 90-days of the PR campaign, which went national – we were sold in nearly all of the JC Penney stores and also opened doors at Dillard’s, Wal-Mart, Federated, and Kids R Us, creating huge consumer demand for the SunWorks product line.

Cathy Callegari represented and supported our portfolio of tabletop brands – Mikasa, Studio Nova, Luminarc, Celebrations by Mikasa, and Salviati – with continuous and extensive placements in leading consumer publications – month after month. We dramatically increased our editorial support under her management of our account.

My relationship with and affection for Cathy has continued through the building of four distinct companies over a period of several years. She has managed the PR efforts for Kloss Video, Cambridge SoundWorks, Tivoli Design, and presently Tivoli Audio, where since the company’s inception, she has successfully executed a PR program resulting in national print and broadcast coverage for our audio products and stereo systems.

Cathy Callegari and her staff have been very successful and effective in achieving high visibility for the National Retail Federation, the nation’s largest trade association representing the retail industry. Due to her efforts, our Annual Convention in New York resulted in an increased attendance of 40% and she was the inspiration for a nationwide study, underwritten by MasterCard, on the buying habits of consumers.

During the complex preparations and the multiple programs conducted during Mexicana’s inauguration of service linking Mexico City with New York City, it was always reassuring to have Cathy Callegari’s expert hand, quietly professional and at times invisible, always there at every moment supporting or reassuring efficiency. She was responsible for the great success we enjoyed.

Cathy Callegari was of tremendous assistance in reaching the media with news about my latest book FDR and the Jews, co-authored with Allan J. Lichtman. She was equally effective with one of my earlier books. Both her PR skills and her contacts are great assets and resulted in major media coverage including New York Times articles.
