With all of the early spring news, we missed the launch of a new communications firm. In early April, Patrick Hynes announced the launch of Hynes Communications, "a premier provider of new media and social networking services, blogger outreach, and online communications," which provides communications campaign development and launch, crisis management and issue advocacy.

From the press release:

Principal Patrick Hynes brings more than thirteen years of experience creating powerful communications campaigns for corporate, association, government, and political clients.  He has helped hundreds of candidates win public office, has designed and implemented strategic online communications programs for large and influential organizations, and is also a published author and a frequent speaker on the rapidly expanding new media industry.
