Avenue Z is proud to announce the acquisition of Bevel, the top communications consultancy for tech and venture capital, and a foundational step in our mission converging public relations and digital marketing.
“In today’s fragmented digital ecosystem, building a category-leading brand requires integrated messages across platforms. By leveraging influential storytelling, digital media and data, we’ll drive brand visibility, build stakeholder engagement and provide clients with measured ROI,” said Jeffrey Herzog.
Bevel is a leading strategic communications firm with offices in Miami, London, New York and Los Angeles. The firm specializes in providing a full range of solutions to help companies articulate their values and build lasting brands with their team of influencers that create breakthroughs between clients and their target audiences. They support leading companies in fintech, venture capital, enterprise software, consumer brands, and technology with services that include digital and traditional media relations, crisis communications, advisory and consulting, custom-events, content creation, media training and design services.
With a passion for shaping the future of technology through communications, Bevel was founded by venture-capital communications veteran Jessica Schaefer, looking to reimagine the role of public relations for companies on the cutting-edge.
“I’m excited to work with Herzog to build the first digital communications unicorn,” said Schaefer, Founder and CEO of Bevel. “Our clients are demanding influencer relations, SEO, content marketing, video and social media services – 360° campaigns that drive influence and impact. The capital, experience and team that Jeff brings building global firms will make our growth unstoppable.”
Bevel has historically excelled at advising private and public company CEOs on media affairs, reputation management and crisis communications. Through the company’s results-driven and VC-like approach, they have attracted a notable roster of clients, including: Acorns, Better.com, BlockTower Capital, Clocktower Technology Ventures, Dave.com, Greycroft, Public.com; RX3 Ventures, a consumer-focused investment fund backed by Aaron Rodgers; and, Sundance, the largest independent film festival globally, among others. Now as part of the Avenue Z Network, Bevel will be able to offer clients greater influence through Search & Social Media.
