“I started my business to help small and medium-sized businesses get the PR they deserve,” says Hilary Topper, CEO of HJMT. “That was my driving force behind what I do. We also do it because we love getting attention for our clients, from our consumers and from the media.” HJMT helps clients gain exposure in major newspapers, magazines, television, radio, and on the internet.
Quick Tip: “I’ve always been an out-of-the-box thinker. When there was a downturn, I wrote a book or organized the TRI EXPO.”
An HJMT affiliate, HJMT Media Company LLC, includes several blogs and podcasts that also serve as forums to promote clients. Topper herself contributes to the blogs Tech News Now, NY Lifestyle Blog and A Triathlete’s Diary Blog, and the podcast Hilary Topper On Air. “Recently, we decided to take one of the blogs, A Triathlete’s Diary, and bring it to the next level by holding the NY TRI EXPO at Citi Field. In my business, I do things big to get big results,” says Topper.
The TRI EXPO will benefit the American Lung Association, “a nonprofit organization near and dear to my heart,” says Topper. “My entire family died of lung disease, including my mother, and it’s important that I give back to this charity.”
