Atomic Public Relations Named to San Francisco Business Times/Price Waterhouse Coopers List of "Top 100 Fastest-Growing Private Companies"

Leading SF Bay Area PR Firm Ranks #31 on the 2006 List

San Francisco, CA - November 8, 2006-- Atomic Public Relations, a leading next-generation communications firm today announced it has been ranked #31 on the San Francisco Business Times annual listing of the Top 100 Fastest Growing Private Companies in the Bay Area. This is the first year Atomic Public Relations has been selected for the list, as the company continues to grow its revenue, staff and services.

"Atomic teams stay very focused on our client's businesses, and we've somewhat neglected marketing the agency itself- so we were surprised and excited to be recognized as one of San Francisco's fastest growing private companies," said Andy Getsey, Atomic Public Relations co-founder and managing director. "It's a testament to the great work Atomic teams do, the traction our teams generate for their clients and the alternative we provide to the way most PR firms go about things."

To qualify for the San Francisco Business Times list of 100 Fastest Growing Private Companies, companies must be based in San Francisco County; have been in business at least three fiscal years through fiscal year 2005; and have revenues of more than $200,000 in fiscal year 2003. Atomic posted revenues of $3.2 million in 2005.

Founded in late 1999, Atomic's success is due in large part to its reputation as a pioneer in "new school" PR or PR 2.0. Atomic's fusion of analytics-driven strategy, creative big picture thinking, efficient online workflows and mastery of media relations across the entire spectrum of communications channels offer a fresh alternative to more traditional agency methods. Atomic clients frequently achieve 100% and greater increases in media volume, quality and message clarity compared to pre-Atomic baselines, as well as stronger linkage between communications efforts and business results.

The agency's core client base is in technology - with clients spanning chips and embedded systems, enterprise software, SOA, information security, enterprise storage, mobile technologies, on-demand services, consumer technology, digital entertainment, Web 2.0 and others. In addition to technology, through referral the agency has expanded into more purely consumer, entertainment and lifestyle accounts - where Atomic's unique approach honed in the highly competitive technology space has proven equally powerful.

Current representative Atomic clients include IMAX, LinkedIn, PhotoBucket, Flock, Blurb, Splunk!, CMP Media Technology Group, Sigma Designs, Echelon Corporation, Callidus Software, Savvion, FalconStor, AmberPoint, TumbleWeed Communications, Shazam, Blink Digital, MAC Veneers, IDOL Vodka, Another Planet Entertainment, Titanic: the Artifact Exhibition, Higgins Group, the San Francisco Convention and Visitors Bureau, the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco, Zeum and others.

2006 continues to be a successful year for Atomic Public Relations, as the company was recently recognized by PR Week as the #101 agency in the country, based on 2005 revenues. The agency opened an office in Los Angeles in September and in October, Atomic's LA staff was joined by the employees of a 4 person consumer and entertainment PR firm. The firm has continued to be active in establishing relationships with global PR networks and now has active partnerships with best-of-breed private public relations firms across Europe and Asia/Pacific. Atomic presently employs 30-plus full time practitioners and will bill approximately $5 million in 2006.
