Blinn PR, a technology boutique based in Manhattan, closed its doors recently. We we alerted to the news by Steven Blinn’s GChat status update, saying only:
“After 15 years BlinnPR is closing it’s doors. Relocating to Toronto, and looking for new opportunities. Eh?”
Blinn is notable to us as both a frequent commenter on PRNewser, and as one of several agency owners to lock horns with 5WPR and its provacative founder Ronn Torossian.
Blinn went after some of Torossian’s clients in the wake of the Chris Anderson’s PR Blacklist, on which several 5W staffers were listed. Torossian and his SVP responded by attempting to take both Blinn’s clients and staffers.
Emails and IMs to Blinn have not been returned as of the time of this post.
