"For six years, Dean led a PR team that were the Marines of the PR industry, with the can-do attitude. His was the only agency that clearly was willing to not just partner on the planning, but to get into the trenches with me, get dirty and get the job done. They demonstrated that willingness time and time again, and delivered excellent results along the way. I wanted results, and I got them."

"KoiFish Communications played a pivotal role in the reintroduction of Trader Vic’s to the Portland market. The team did more than just learn about our target audience; they became our target audience. They infiltrated the local tiki community, learned to make the drinks, studied the food, the art, the history and the culture of the culinary phenomenon that is Trader Vic’s and Polynesian Pop. This knowledge made them an invaluable part of the team and allowed them to create content that engaged, informed and delighted our most fanatical followers. The result was an onslaught of media coverage, lines around the block, and a major buzz around town that lasted for months."
Ben Stutz, Managing Partner, Trader Vic’s Portland
