Racepoint Group Adds Tech Assignments

BOSTON Racepoint Group has added five public relations clients in recent weeks, the agency said.

The accounts are Context Web in New York; Formation Systems in Southborough, Mass.; iKnowtion in Burlington, Mass.; the Massachusetts Innovation and Technology Exchange of Boston; and Third Screen Media in Portsmouth, R.I. The combined overall fees from the business are about $500,000.

“We are pleased with our sustained growth and balance of clients in key strategic markets,” said Racepoint president Marijean Lauzier. “Our new clients represent the very best and most innovative in their respective industries. We look forward to playing an instrumental role in shaping their stories and having an immediate and positive impact on their bottom line results.”

Racepoint Group, a communications shop that focuses on emerging technology, health and science companies, will primarily handle media and analyst relations for the new clients.

In a related development, the year-old independent agency last week relocated its Cambridge, Mass., office to 404 Wyman St. in Waltham, Mass.

“Our relocation not only gives us more space for our growing firm, but it also provides a central location to more effectively service our clients,” said Lauzier.
