Leadership

In Claudio we trust...

Andy Pray

Agency Founder

Beth Cleveland

Managing Partner

Claudio Taratuta

Managing Partner

Andrew Pray has been leading integrated PR campaigns that cover social, digital and traditional PR for nearly a decade, experience that led to the start of Praytell in December of ‘12. Prior to founding Praytell, he worked with Ruder Finn (SF, NYC, London) and Waggener Edstrom (SF). He was named to PRWeek’s 40 under 40 list in 2015 as punishment for always thinking those lists were pretty silly.

Beth heads up Praytell’s public relations business with experience leading US and international programs for a range of clients including OfficeMax, MAC Cosmetics, Estee Lauder, Shock Top and Logitech. Her campaigns have leveraged evolving media platforms from Netflix to the first-ever live blogger webcast and earned awards from South by Southwest, PROMO Interactive, MIXX Awards and The Bulldog Awards.

Claudio oversees the social strategy and account teams at Praytell, providing strategic insights and leading campaigns for clients including Logitech, Soundcloud, Hyatt, TransferWise and more. Whether it’s content development, community management, measurement, or social listening, he makes sure it all gets done and done well. Prior to Praytell, Claudio worked at 360i leading the charge on Oreo and its Daily Twist campaign. The program won various awards such as a Webby, Facebook Studio Award, ANDY, CLIO and others.

Our work is a reflection of

Our Culture

We build dynamic, thoughtful, robust content strategies for our social clients. For us? Not so much. Instead we focus on ensuring our social content is an accurate reflection of life here with the Praytell family. Caution. It gets weird.

Camp Praytell

This is what happens when you bring an entire agency to the Catskills for a staff retreat. (Magic)

Slack Logo

Shoutouts

The happiest place in our office is an online chatroom. Celebrating the wins, big (we have new snacks!) or small (we didn’t eat all the snacks!), average emoji and pun count skyrocket here.

Passion Project

There are more tools in the communications toolkit than ever before, tools we want to leverage on behalf of nonprofits in need of a little help.
