  • For the past few years, we have worked with Lightspeed on the iHome brand. Ethan and the team exhibit supreme professionalism and a dedicated, can do attitude. To that end, their ability to get work done efficiently and effectively as well as their attention to detail is impressive. At a time when the market is flooded with options, they find ways to get our products continuous, high profile coverage. Regardless of the project or budget, they always come through with creative and effective options and solutions. I highly recommend Lightspeed for all of your public relations needs and challenges.Evan Stein, iHome
  • I have worked with MANY PR firms and people over the years, but never anyone as media savvy and hard working as Ethan. I engaged Ethan and his firm, Lightspeed, to help with my holiday media needs, With little notice, Ethan hit the ground running. He worked his contacts and mine with awesome results. If you are looking for someone to jump start your PR, Ethan is your man!Scott Jordan, SCOTTeVEST
  • Ethan and the team at Lightspeed really helped put 4C on the map and have been great partners – proactive, creative, dependable and flexible. Highly recommended!Aaron Goldman, 4C Insights
  • Our company engaged Ethan and his team at Lightspeed PR to assist on the product launch for a “prosumer”-oriented software product, tasking them with specific goals for building brand awareness and social media profiles, drawing media attention and improving download and conversion rate from the product website. With Ethan’s guidance and support, his team has delivered results above and beyond our expectations and contributed any number of creative ideas to expand the scope of our typical PR activity. Ethan has been a pleasure to work with, always very flexible when presented with constantly shifting product release schedules and program priorities. I would highly recommend him to any organization seeking a reliable and productive resource for launching and publicizing technology products.Christine Follett, AMI
  • Lightspeed is unlike any agency I’ve worked with before. All five members of my account team are at least a “director” level with years of relevant experience. There are no junior account executives acting as intermediaries. At any hour, I have a direct line to Lightspeed’s experts in media relations, industry relations, social media and content development. At first, I was frankly a bit skeptical about how this would work with so many new “direct reports,” but using tools like Slack, communications are seamless. Plus Ethan is an excellent orchestrator, not to mention a talented strategist and trusted advisor. Most importantly, the team proactively executes and delivers results.Daniel Heimlich, RightEye
  • Ethan and Lightspeed PR are a nimble, results-oriented team. They have been so flexible in dealing with shifting timelines and projects, as is so often the case in the startup world. In my opinion they’ve proven to be on par with (or above!) larger, much more expensive firms in terms of expertise, connections and results. I would highly recommend their services to anyone.Aja Butler George, Foko Retail
