PR Group Makes Plans

The Massachusetts Software & Internet Council, a leading advocate for the state’s technology industry, has named Topaz Partners as the organization’s public relations agency.

Topaz Partners will handle media relations strategy and support and will provide additional PR assistance for events and initiatives sponsored by the Council, a driving force on technology issues and a leading advocate for the software and Internet industry in Massachusetts.

“Members of the Topaz Partners team have a long history of involvement in our technology community, and with The Massachusetts Software & Internet Council in particular, making them an ideal choice to provide PR counsel and support for our organization,” said Council President Joyce L. Plotkin.

Topaz Partners was founded by a group of senior technology PR professionals who have worked with dozens of software and Internet companies based in Massachusetts.

“The Massachusetts Software & Internet Council continues to be a vital part of the technology community here in Massachusetts and beyond,” said Tony Sapienza, principal partner at Topaz. “We’re honored to have an opportunity to work with the organization to help spread the word about the leadership programs and services that support our state’s software and Internet industry.”
