I'm Pattie Mercier, the Founder and Managing Director at Vigorous Communications. With over 15 years of experience in PR, marketing and sales, I'm results-driven and have experience on both the client and agency side of PR. This enables me to understand your business, develop a winning strategy and achieve your goals and objectives with my two feet firmly planted in reality. I've developed, planned and executed on all aspects of PR and marketing campaigns for companies large and small.


I got my PR feet wet the old-fashioned way, at the Boston Globe's City Desk. This experience provided the foundation for a career in PR (not to mention some amazing contacts). At LNS Communications, a PR agency, I became an integral part of my client's strategy by handling a range of PR activities such as organizing media tours, speaking opportunities and thought leadership programs.


My background in high tech and experience on the client side of the coin started at Trillium Software. I established a corporate communications program at Trillium, as well as developed and nurtured analyst, media and customer relations programs from scratch. I helped build brand awareness, Trillium's thought leadership within the market and helped grow Trillium into a global leader in data quality.


Finally, I'm no stranger to sales and how to put food on the table. As the Strategic Alliance Manager for a leading software company, I built my pipeline and territory by identifying potential partners, developing a mutually-beneficial value proposition and then bringing it to market.
