Hello. It’s nice to meet you!
Pearl Street is a full service marketing and communications company that is passionate about working with organizations that care.
The Pearl Street name captures two things that we are passionate about:
community and innovation.
Our namesake is an actual road in Manhattan, New York. It was the site of the world’s first central electricity generating station. Opened in 1882 by Edison Electric Illuminating Company (and run by Thomas himself!), it served a small geographic community. Electrical lights at the time were rare and the station was the first opportunity for the community to literally power itself. You can read more about the Pearl Street Station here and how it started the North American utility industry.

Our Pearls Of Wisdom
The world does not need more marketing. It needs more communicating. • We don’t talk to people. We talk with them. • Listen first. Communications is more than talking and writing. • It’s not about us. It is about our audience. • Less is more. • Consistency builds trust. • Clarity. Clarity. Clarity. • Beta is good. So are mistakes. • Never stop learning. Always share, especially the truth. • Honesty and transparency always win the day. • Courageous conversations make for better and longer lasting relationships. • Relationships matter. Partnership trumps flying solo. • More ‘and’ and less ‘or’. • Technology is a means not an end. • Ask. Don’t tell or sell. • Community is the answer.
