Collected News

Investors are skewing younger and they consume information differently, which means the proxy comms playbook needs to change with the times, says Collected Strategies founding partner Dan Moore.
The Observer notes that Collected Strategies, unlike existing incumbents focused on document management, prioritized providing counsel, recognizing the growing importance of communication in recent years.
The Observer recognizes Tali Epstein, who was "part of the high-powered team that left fin-comms giant Joele Frank to launch Collected Strategies in July."
Hammond says that, "The unspoken truth of the PR industry is that it has very few practitioners who actually know what journalists do all day."
Axios highlights Collected's 2023 launch, naming it one of the "challenger firms" offering high-level, strategic communications advice.
Insider named Collected Strategies Partner Scott Bisang as one of the 18 PR execs to call in a crisis, citing his work counseling Twitter through the Elon Musk transaction and Jack Dorsey transition, Vice Media with its recent restructuring and First NBC Bank on its 2017 FDIC seizure.
