Eatontown, NJ, April 7, 2009 – Utopia Communications, Inc., a NJ minority and woman-owned company, has launched a growing online networking forum for Hispanic PR professionals on the National Society for Hispanic Professionals (NSHP) web site.
The forum, called Hispanic Public Relations Professionals, has been named “Group of the Month” by the NSHP.
“When I sought out other Hispanic PR professionals such as myself, I found that they were few and far between,” said Senior Vice President, National Operations Elliott Subervi. Subervi came to the PR industry from telecommunications and is a member of several Hispanic organizations such as the Latin American Association, the Hispanic Public Relations Association, the Latin Business Club of America and the League of United Latin American Citizens.
“I wanted to create a place where other Hispanic PR professionals could share their opinions and insights and be heard.”
According to the U.S. Census Bureau , Latinos represent over 15 percent of the population, which translates to 45.5 million Americans as of 2007.
“With this number expected to grow by an additional 10 percent by 2050, it’s critical that we look to expanding the role of Hispanics within the public relations profession,” said Subervi. “As a minority-led organization, it is my hope that Utopia Communications can take a leadership role in this effort.
Utopia Communications was founded in 2005 and represents a new type of public relations firm: an ethically focused practice which represents organizations, ideas, people and companies that enhance the human condition and which operate within a strongly principled framework.
