Pecchia Communications Expects Strong Growth in 2020

CANFIELD – Pecchia Communications expects to soon announce a project with a North Carolina company that’s introducing new technology to its employees worldwide, says President Dan Pecchia.

The Canfield firm secured new local activity last year with Schwebel Baking Co., TuDor Physical Therapy, Ohio Living Foundation, Mahoning Soil & Water Conservation District, AML Industries and the Youngstown State University Foundation. 

“We have been fortunate in recent years to ride two high waves that have also helped our clients and others in our business,” Pecchia says. “One is the strong national economy. The other is the rise of technology that makes it easier for more organizations to tell their stories to their key audiences. These waves have sparked higher demand for effective, cost-friendly communications services.”  

Pecchia is donating public relations and marketing support for the Robinson-Shuba Commemorative Statue Project, a proposed memorial to the Jackie Robinson-George Shuba handshake that helped advance the racial integration of Major League Baseball in the 1940s. The late Shuba was a Youngstown native and played with Robinson for the Montreal Royals and Brooklyn Dodgers. 

Since 2015, Pecchia Comm’s revenue has grown an average of more than 15% a year, Pecchia says. 

Much of that stems from steady relationships with long-time clients such as Harrington, Hoppe & Mitchell, Aim Leasing and NOMS Ankle & Foot Care Centers. 

“New digital technologies are enabling more organizations to take a look at their communications programs to see if they can do some things more effectively,” adds Kelli Hulea, project manager at Pecchia Communications. “We like to introduce clients to new ideas that bring them more value through a variety of channels, often at the same or even lower cost than what they’re used to spending.”
