Olmstead Williams Launches in L.A.

Tracy Olmstead Williams has launched Los Angeles-based Olmstead Williams Communications, a full-service PR agency specializing in building the reputations of companies in technology, health sciences and professional and financial services. For 10 years prior to forming Olmstead Williams, its namesake was a partner and president at a leading independent PR firm Casey Sayre & Williams in Santa Monica, Calif. The new agency, which opened its doors in September, already has 14 clients including a big-four accounting firm, several law firms and financial services companies — and most recently, Advanced Bionics, the only manufacturer of cochlear implants (or “bionic ears”) in the U.S.
