Metz Public Relations has earned
the respect of clients and colleagues



"Metz Public Relations has been an essential part
of our team for the past 14 years. Barbara cares deeply about every project she has undertaken on our behalf. She has been enormously effective, almost single-handedly building international awareness of a non-profit arts event taking place across the US/Mexico border. During our opening weekend in 2005, inSite was one of the top 10 stories on AP Worldwide.”

network and excellent communication skills. These established talents were invaluable to me over a 10-year working relationship with Metz Public Relations. With Barbara, I constantly received excellent media advice, creative story ideas and a continuous “can-do” attitude.”

“I’m so pleased to have this opportunity to express my admiration for Barbara Metz, the quintessential Public Relations professional. Her deep and broad experience, her vast list of contacts and her at-her-fingertips resources must be giving her clients a great feeling of confidence in these changing times. Warm, calm, fun, generous with her time and talent, it’s always a pleasure to be in her presence. Plus, it’s fun to listen to her laugh – she has one of the great ones.”

Terry Williams
Executive Director
San Diego Press Club



Having worked with Metz PR for the past four
years, I am very impressed with Barbara’s get-
things-done-approach combined with her high
level of talent for communicating. Just the
combination you would want in a pubic
relations firm.

“Barbara began her representation of Grubb & Ellis by first investing the time to understand our business. This included our vision, goals, clients, and the nuances of how we deliver superior client satisfaction. She drew on her understanding to craft our message in creative ways that resonated with our market. At the same time her position of trust and respect in the media allowed us to expand the reach of our message. I found her to be a committed team player, passionate in her representation, and dependable.”
