Press Run

May 26, 2020

Amelia Morris has announced the launch of the new communications agency Press Run. After working for several larger Toronto agencies including Edelman and NKPR, Press Run founder Amelia Morris is enthusiastic about bringing this experience to the marine industry.

Press Run is a full-service communications agency offering; social media consultation and community management, digital advertising, public relations and marketing strategy, media relations, event planning and management.

Currently Press Run is working with Northstar Marine Insurance and the Toronto International Boat Show.

As the world moves through the stages of the coronavirus, we remain optimistic and believe this is an opportunity for businesses to seize this valuable time to amplify their brand presence online. The importance of social media and digital communication has never been more clear – enter Press Run.

We are offering marine businesses the opportunity to choose a small and specialized, independently run communications agency in lieu of the big guys and traditional partners. We are passionate about results, but don’t require an arm and a leg in the process.

If you are a brand looking to ramp up your digital marketing efforts or looking for help starting your digital platforms please contact us directly at
