Bishoff, Solomon Diverge, Form Separate Shops

BOSTON Janey Bishoff and Helene Solomon have split after nearly 15 years in business helming one of the region’s more successful small public relations agencies.

The former partners have both formed new shops and are essentially splitting about a dozen clients of the Bishoff Solomon agency. The shop’s 20 staffers are also expected to all find employment at the new agencies.

Solomon has formed Solomon McCown with Ahsley McCown, who had been an evp with Bishoff Solomon, and retains that same title with the new shop. Working for clients such as the Greater Boston Real Estate Board, Solomon McCown will specialize in public and communities affairs clientele.

Bishoff Communications launches with assignments from the Massachusetts, Rhode Island and New Hampshire McDonald’s franchisee groups and Shawmut Design & Construction.
