The Rutgers Chemistry and Chemical Biology Department hired Fred Feiner and Yankee Public Relations to help build public recognition for our department as we sought public support for a cutting-edge science center. Fred created a proactive media relations program for our department that generated significant, consistent publicity in the regional press, providing greater public understanding of Rutgers Chemistry as a national leader in our discipline. Fred has worked with our department on many communications needs over the past four years, including publication and website development, promotional videos, publicity and the groundbreaking for our new building. In all facets, Fred’s work and strategic communications insight have been exceptional and I would strongly recommend his services to colleagues in both higher education and the corporate world.

Fred Feiner has been instrumental in promoting several important projects for the Rutgers University Institute for Advanced Materials, Devices and Nanotechnology (IAMDN) and the Rutgers Nanotechnology for Clean Energy Integrative Graduate Education Research Traineeship (IGERT). Fred’s expertise helped generate national and regional publicity for IAMDN research initiatives and significant technology investments as well as public educational programs for IGERT. Fred has the ability to take complex research topics and communicate them in a fashion that broadens public recognition and understanding while also increasing Rutgers exposure in the scientific communities. He played an integral role in helping IAMDN and IGERT receive both internal and external recognition for important programs that impact multiple industries, exposure that can be invaluable in maintaining current and garnering new funding support. We recommend Fred and Yankee Public Relations to higher education institutions and corporate entities that face the challenge of communicating their message in an increasingly cluttered public marketplace.

Fred Feiner and Yankee Public Relations have provided vital strategic public relations in the launch of Levolta Pharmaceuticals and the introduction of our patented investigational therapy for osteoarthritis. There are many challenges to overcome with the launch of any new biotech company and Fred provided valuable insight on how best to position the company with potential investors as well as the scientific and medical communities. In a series of media relations projects, he successfully garnered national, regional and trade press exposure for Levolta and our ongoing research. I would highly recommend Fred to colleagues in the biotech and pharmaceutical industries because he clearly has the contacts and expertise to help build recognition for companies in our industry at all stages of the product lifecycle.
