Our Story...

After spending years as a senior level PR agency executive in New York where he managed the accounts of many of the world's leading electronics manufacturers, Charlie Leib, a native New Yorker, was transplanted in Arizona in early 2000 to build and manage the PR department of an international consumer and professional electronics manufacturing corporation.

In July 2004, Charlie founded CRL Public Relations.

Besides his years of senior level agency experience and his success building and managing the PR department of a large electronics corporation, Charlie also has extensive experience as a newspaper reporter/editor as well as years of time spent working in television and radio marketing and production.

Unlike most PR professionals who have never worked on staff for a manufacturer, never worked for the media, or never worked with the products they now promote, Charlie has done it all. This valuable firsthand experience allows Charlie to know exactly what the manufacturer wants and expects out of a PR agency, as well as how to cater to the needs of the media.

Charlie has a B.A. in Journalism with a minor in media communications from the State University of New York College at New Paltz. He has also been certified by the Connecticut School of Broadcasting.
