Deal finalized to acquire Austin public relations firm Leverage PR


Leverage PR, an Austin marketing and public relations firm, has been acquired by New York-based Caliber Corporate Advisers, the two companies said Tuesday.

Financial terms of the deal weren’t disclosed.

Founded in 2010 by Joy Schoffler, Leverage PR focuses primarily on serving clients in the financial services, technology and real estate sectors. It has, over the years, worked with more than 100 clients.

Caliber Corporate Advisers has worked with about 100 clients, as well, since its creation seven years ago. Its founder and CEO is Harvey Hudes.

Schoffler will remain with Leverage PR, which will continue to have its offices in Austin.

“Partnering with a team with an East Coast presence was a natural transition to offering our clients even more value and resources,” Schoffler said. “Knowing Harvey and I were aligned in our passion for creating a best-in-class agency that allowed room for growth for employees, access to more resources and an expansive network for our clients won me over, and I am excited for all the opportunities to come.”
