Boutique Twin Cities PR firm celebrates 20 years in business

This year marks the 20-year anniversary for Twin Cities-based boutique public relations firm LIN PR + Associates, which celebrated its achievement on Nov. 14. The firm is comprised of independent consultants, Lynn Nelson (principal and lead strategist), Kate Burnevik (account executive and digital strategist), Brant Skogrand (social media and SEO director), Bruce Armstrong (graphic designer) and Susan Bonne (copywriter).

“We viewed the anniversary as an opportunity to not only celebrate our own achievements, but also to thank our clients and friends who’ve been strong supporters of our business over the years,” said Lynn Nelson. “Some of our clients have been with us for the entire 20 years, and Fredrikson & Byron is one of them.”

The firm’s most notable clients include, Minneapolis-based law firm Fredrikson & Byron, Minnesota nonprofit RESOURCE, Inc., the American Craft Council, a national nonprofit for the arts based in Northeast Minneapolis, and Women’s Health Leadership TRUST, a trade/networking group for women executives in health care.

And although LIN PR is a smaller operation, the group is no stranger to the rewards that come from doing pro bono work. Nelson and her associates have provided pro bono public relations services to several Twin Cities goodwill organizations, including Heading Home Hennepin,, PipJazz Foundation, and ARC Greater Twin Cities, where Nelson has been a board and committee member for many years.
