Fred always goes the extra mile to get a story published or uses her creative brain to come up with a 3PAR news angle that no one else has ever thought of. Her creative ideas have single-handedly kept the European press satisfied over the past four years!

Craig Nunes, Vice President of Marketing (now at Datrium). 3PAR

As a SNIA Europe board director I have worked with Fred over the last few years so when we decided to build the MTI brand across EMEA we did not look any further A3 Communications was an easy choice thanks to their market knowledge, drive, PR skills and agencies network.

Aad Dekkers, Chief Marketing Officer (now at Scale Computing). MTI

When we started Shoden Data Systems in 2008, we wanted to build a company that offered enterprise-level storage solutions to FTSE100 organisations, and to offer the highest levels of service in the UK and latterly on the Continent. Over the last three and a half years, we are proud to have British Airways, Barclays, Sainsbury's and Standard Bank as users of our solutions, together with similar organisations in Spain and Germany. We could not have achieved this level of success so quickly as a start-up without the tremendous support and guidance provided by A3 Communications; Fred Monsone and her team have been excellent in promoting Shoden's name, giving us frequent exposure and contact with the leading IT industry journalists and analysts. They managed our company and product launches, and always ensured that in every context, the Shoden name was displayed for maximum benefit. I have no hesitation in recommending A3 Communications to any organisation that is keen to raise its profile in a highly competitive market.

Phil Jones, CEO. Shoden

Texas Memory Systems started working with A3 Communications in 2003. A3 played a major role in helping TMS enter the European market and continues to help us grow in revenue and credibility. Fred Monsone's connections in the European technology market are unparalleled. In addition to expert advice and creative strategies for reaching this market, A3 Communications has coordinated our participation in trade shows, analyst briefings and helped with our channel development. I cannot imagine that Texas Memory Systems would have had the success we have had without A3 Communications and would recommend this team without hesitation.

Woody Hutsell, President. Texas Memory Systems

A3 Communications has successfully helped build awareness and interest for our brand within EMEA. Concentrating mainly on the UK, France and Germany, their press connections within the storage sector in particular, are second to none. The A3 Communications team has worked as a direct extension of our marketing team allowing our relatively lean team to considerably outsource the PR and press relations tasks. The team's enthusiasm and creative ideas are faultless, plus they know when to keep up the pressure to help close things off and get projects out the door.

Louise Jordan, Senior Director, EMEA Marketing & Operations. Violin Memory

I consider A3 Communications an extension of my in-house PR team and value them highly. The team has a very keen understanding of the IT market in the UK, and delivers insightful strategy, creative campaigns, and successful implementation with diligence and passion (hired A3 Communications three times).

Gregg Holzrichter, CMO. Big Switch Networks

PR plays an integral part in our company messaging in the 5 years working with Federica I have found her to be an exceptional asset to help us achieve this goal. A3 combines PR expertise but also, and more importantly, in-depth knowledge of the storage industry. Fred understands the market and the players, the technology, and how it all weaves together.

Neil Patel, sales director (now at D-link). Adaptec

When I asked the team at A3 Communications to make sure I'd have a full agenda of meetings with the storage industry's finest at SNW Europe, I did not realise they would take it literally: I was booked back-to-back from morning to evening with just a few breaks to visit the show floor. I am thrilled with the results.

Tom Leyden, VP corporate marketing. Excelero

The A3 Communications team is key in driving our UK PR programme. It also provides strategic advice on our news funnel, works with our channel on our case study programme and reaches out to any vertical market we wish to focus on. This agency is a trusted and valuable partner for Asigra.

Tracy Staniland, Senior Director, Corporate Marketing. Asigra

This lady is just fabulous! One of the most dynamic persons I have met in PR, always coming up with creative ideas that are relevant. And by the time you approve the project, generally half the work is done already! Fred showed great results for me for Seagate, then Axeda. I most highly recommend Fred Monsone for any job requiring drive, creativity, motivation, hard work - and a smile.

Emmanuel Vitrac, Former marketing director, Europe & Asia. Axeda

The A3 Communications team are all exceptional PR professionals with a complete understanding of how to generate high-impact PR within the data storage industry. Their attention to detail is second to none and their drive and enthusiasm means that you can rely to them to deliver great work on time every time. It has been a pleasure working with them all since our launch of the Dot Hill brand into the EMEA channel in 2009.

Warren Reid, EMEA marketing director. Dot Hill

A3 Communications has been a fantastic ally for QStar in getting our name better known. You have always been helpful and full of great suggestions for improving our brand recognition and awareness. Having a PR company that understands our market is a god-send.

Dave Thompson, Senior VP Sales and Marketing. QStar Technologies

Having worked both in-house and at agencies, I appreciate the critical importance of a strong PR program, and I can say that the team at A3 Communications provides honest input from the start. This allows me to manage expectations within my company while always aiming for the best results we can get. It’s refreshing to find an agency that takes such an approach to its client relationships.

Michael Robinson, VP of marketing. GreenBytes

PR plays an integral part of our marketing strategy and A3 Communications have proven themselves to be one of the most proactive and results-orientated PR agencies that I have ever worked with. Their professional approach as well as their diligent follow-up continues to be of great benefit to our PR goals as well as our business.

Vanessa Gamlin, marketing director. Bakbone

A3 Communications has been supporting our events for ten years with fantastic results. During this time the team has developed some of the strongest event PR programmes around, as we are regularly told by exhibitors, press and bloggers. As our events changed and expanded in line with the industry, so did the communications activities that A3 devised and implemented for us. I would not hesitate to recommend A3 if you want a proactive, enthusiastic agency that delivers every time.

Bill Dunlop Uprichard, CEO. Angel Business Communications

On a very tight start-up budget, Fred worked tirelessly to ensure that Tarmin was constantly in the minds of the press and analysts. Her efforts resulted in us winning an award within three months of our first shipment quite an accomplishment. Fred has my highest recommendation. If you want a PR firm that delivers, then Fred is the one you want. She has my business and will continue to have it in the future. Just can't say enough about her great performance.

Eric Herzog, Former VP of marketing (now at IBM). Tarmin

After some failed collaborations with various PR agencies we wanted to give it one more try. And boy, what a good decision it was. Fred and A3 are absolutely amazing in keeping a very close relationship, understanding our company culture and values and sharing them with the world. I was surprised to see their dedication, their ability to always go the extra mile, to get even the most challenging problem solved. I’m delighted with the collaboration.

Vadim Comanescu, COO. Syneto

I have worked with A3 Communications while running PR and marketing for several companies and they are really an extension of my team they understand our market, work closely with us, come up with creative ideas to secure comment opportunities and generate coverage, and no challenge is ever too difficult. I’m not one for marketing lingo but between Virtual Instruments and A3 there is definitely synergy!

Chris James, EMEA marketing director. Virtual Instruments

A3 Communications' public relations strategy, counsel and tactical execution have significantly raised the quality of our European programmes over the past four years. Their deep knowledge of the storage and virtualization industries have increased Spectra’s brand awareness across the region and delivered measurable results that tie into our greater marketing initiatives. A3’s ability to keep Spectra Logic in front of the right influencers, combined with our team’s superior ability to “translate” and place highly technical concepts into creative, compelling industry articles have been two of the greatest benefits we’ve realized from the partnership to date.

Leigh Grainger, Public Relations Manager. Spectra Logic

A3 Communications is always thinking of new ways to generate interest in Zadara. The team is energetic, flexible and knows how to support a company like ours that always hits the ground running. With A3 you don't get a team who quietly implements your plans - these guys come up with ideas, give you honest feedback, drive and execute plans. Always with commitment, always with a smile.

Kevin Liebl, VP of Marketing. Zadara Storage

What's different about A3 Communications? They're storage specialists - they understand the technology and are well networked with the European storage editors and industry analysts. A3 handled Data Domain's PR and AR in Europe for close to three years, as we evolved from a startup in an emerging category into a market leader that commanded more than $2 billion in an acquisition. A3 Communications did a great job for us.

Ed Luboja, Communications Director (now at EMC). Data Domain

A3 Communications is different from other PR agencies. Because they know our industry so well and have impressive relationships with the relevant press, bloggers and analysts, they regularly give us effective strategic advice on how to get our voice heard over our competition. And that’s on top of the underlying comms services that you expect from a successful international PR agency.

Bharat Kumar, EMEA marketing director. Arcserve

I had worked with A3 Communications in the past so when it came to launching Load DynamiX (now Virtual Instruments) into Europe I had no hesitation in using them again. Their knowledge of the storage market means that they often spot opportunities where another agency might not. The reception Load DynamiX has received following our launch has been tremendous and it’s definitely been a team effort (hired A3 Communications twice).

Len Rosenthal, CMO. Virtual Instruments

A3 Communications is a stellar tour de force when it comes to effective, results-based PR. Never one to accept mediocrity, A3 consistently strives to get our message in front of the right press, pundits and analysts and delivers on that promise. I would recommend Fred and her team to any organisation seeking to get themselves in the spotlight.

Sean Jackson, VP of worldwide Marketing. Kognitio
