This past spring, Newtown-based Garfield Group, one of the leading tech PR/marketing communications firms in the Philadelphia area, announced a rebranding and repositioning initiative. Goals were to build its digital, content and creative capabilities and become a more fully integrated marketing services firm, establish new ties to the tech startup scene, and broaden its regional footprint.

Recently, Garfield demonstrated progress towards these goals by announcing the addition of eight new clients over the past six months. Four of the firms are local, two are in the Chicago area, one is in San Francisco and one is in Atlanta.

A prominent local tech addition is Conshohocken-based NextDocs, whose enterprise-scale eTMF, regulatory and quality solutions automate workflow and document management to speed FDA submission, automating compliance to improve efficiency while reducing costs. The end goal is to get needed new medicines to market faster. NextDocs has substantial venture backing from OpenView Venture Partners.

Peak Equity Partners, Radnor, is a newly formed private equity firm focused on buyouts and recapitalizations of enterprise software and solutions companies. Its co-founders, Greg Case and Paul Winn, were previously responsible for much of LLR Partners' tech investing.

Turnberry Solutions of Blue Bell is an IT staffing and consulting firm; its practice areas include the latest cloud, collaboration, and information security technologies. Bethelehem-based FamilyWize is a community service partnership focused on lowering the cost of prescription drugs, through a discount prescription card.

The other four are:

Chicago Community Loan Fund (CCLF) Chicago

Trulify San Francisco

Navman Wireless Glenview, Illinois

iMedX Atlanta

“We’re excited to have the opportunity to work with these dynamic companies,” said Larry Garfield, president and founder of Garfield Group, in a statement. “These are organizations run by people who are disrupting the status quo in a number of very interesting ways. They present the kinds of challenges we live for — the chance to tell stories that can change the dynamics of an entire industry, and truly make a difference in peoples’ lives.”
