San Jose, Calif. – June 8, 2006 – Silicon Valley technology companies and consumer brand leaders have a new alternative when looking for dynamic public relations counsel with the establishment of Airfoil Public Relations’ newest office. Airfoil Public Relations, Inc., specialists in public relations and marketing communications for both leading and emerging companies, announced today the opening of a new office in the San Francisco Bay Area of California. With its corporate headquarters located in Southeastern Michigan, this new office is a natural evolution in the achievement of Airfoil’s mission: to bring together people and resources to help its clients to compete and succeed.

From its beginnings as a technology-focused agency, Airfoil has worked with clients such as Microsoft and eBay. Having expanded both relationships, Airfoil now supports metro-level public relations nationwide on behalf of Microsoft Corporation as well as national and city-by-city public relations for several eBay categories, projects and subsidiaries including eBay Motors, PayPal and ProStores. Airfoil now services clients in a wide range of industries including consumer, health care and automotive, balancing high level strategic and creative consulting with a proven ability to execute and deliver. Today, Airfoil has surpassed $5 million in fees annually, a result of the high levels of satisfaction that have led clients to expand their work with Airfoil along with its success in competing for new opportunities.

“Our fastest-growing practice area is consumer, which has been bolstered by programs for eBay, Starbucks and American Laser Centers among others,” said Airfoil President Janet Tyler.

Airfoil’s co-founder and President Janet Tyler will serve as the general manager for the San Francisco Bay Area office, while continuing in her role with Airfoil’s headquarters operation. She will lead a team in spearheading new business and new employee recruitment in the region, while continuing to provide strategic leadership for eBay and PayPal, among others.

“Establishing a Silicon Valley presence was a natural decision for us, with our roots in technology,” said Tyler. “Our clients’ interests span the country and as such, in order for us to best service them, we need to as well.”

Airfoil’s new office, located at 203 Redwood Shores Parkway, in the Towers at Shores Center in Redwood City, Calif. will officially open on June 15, 2006. Airfoil is strategically located to both serve its clients in the Valley, and attract employees from San Francisco proper.

Airfoil begins its Bay Area presence with a small team, and is actively recruiting to fill two additional positions.
