We are NakatomiPR, a strategic communications firm dedicated to improving communities and advancing social change.
NakatomiPR began as a start-up company over 30 years ago in a much narrower PR landscape where only large companies were spending money on communications and marketing.
When founder Debra Nakatomi realized that her passion for her volunteer work in the community was eclipsing her desire to advance her career in the corporate world, she knew it was time to venture into new territory to achieve her vision of helping community and philanthropic organizations to activate their missions. Through a values-informed approach, she applied the tools of communications to create and share their unique stories.
NakatomiPR has grown and matured and now works with a wide range of leaders and organizations who embrace communications as an essential tool as they face change, growth, uncertainty and new challenges.
