Over the last 18 months, the team at East River has become an extension to the Bridgedale marketing team – they are passionate and knowledgeable about the outdoors and have become great ambassadors for our brand East River work as a team, approaching every brief quickly, effectively and often by going that extra mile.

We would recommend East River to anyone wishing to raise their profile or improve their brand coverage.


We appointed East River PR in May 2013 as our UK PR company, and the results so far have been targeted and effective across trade, specialist and consumer media. We have an excellent relationship and they are very friendly and professional to work with - very much part of our team.

They also have forged good relationships with our key brand partners to strategically push products for each season and we have had excellent feedback. We were very impressed by the trade and specialist coverage from our Performance Down Blend launch for Autumn Winter 2014/15, and we love the fact they constantly come up with strategic yet creative ideas for our consideration.


We hired East River PR to launch our unique range of prescription activity eyewear and have been blown away by the coverage they achieved for us during our first year. We feel very fortunate to have found them and to have had the experience of working with them. Their strategic thinking has been invaluable and their relationships with major media contacts are incredible, getting us an abundance of features and reviews in many, many publications and even a slot on the BBC!

The brand profile of AQUAVIZ and SPORTVIZ in the UK has been influenced greatly by the tireless efforts of the team and this is supported by the fact that during our first year we have spent no money whatsoever on advertising and have relied solely on the PR efforts of East River - and we could not have been happier.


Sue has worked for us over many years with different PR companies. Sue and her team bring enthusiasm, energy and lots of ideas to the table. They understand the differing requirements of brands as diverse as Big Tom and BEET IT Sport.

And of course most importantly East River PR delivers.
