Creative. Thoughtful. Effective. 

Quinn/Brein Communications is one of the oldest privately-owned public relations and marketing firms in Western Washington. We specialize in media relations, community outreach, strategic marketing, social media management, and content creation, including articles, videos, and collateral materials.

Our Origin Story

Los Angeles. 1979. Two young marketing execs—Jeff Brein and Sandy Quinn—are working for the Walt Disney Company when they decide to start this own company. One of their first clients is their old employer. The partnership would include such milestone projects as the launch of Disney’s home video division and TV channel.

More clients followed: Hallmark, Save the Children, Hasbro, Electronic Arts, and the Los Angeles Times, to name a few.

Among QB’s early clients was the biggest of the them all: the office of The President of the United States. QB was charged with handling advance work for then-Vice-President George H.W. Bush and First Lady Nancy Reagan.

In the early 1990s, Sandy Quinn retired from the company and Jeff Brein took a vacation to Seattle, where he fell in love with the area and decided to move his family and the company.

That leads us to today. QB is headquartered on Bainbridge Island—just a short ferry ride from downtown Seattle.

Over the years, our list of representative clients has grown as we’ve expanded our services, embracing new technologies to solve emerging communications challenges.

Through it all, the values of the company have remained the same: we are committed to building a partnership with our clients—whether this means working closely on a single project or forging a relationship that lasts for years. As a boutique agency that has worked with the largest of organizations and the smallest of businesses, we know how to maximize a client’s resources to spend more time on projects without incurring the costs of larger firms. All that, plus we are a one-stop source that can take on your PR, marketing, event planning, social media, content creation, or videography needs.

Everyone has a story to tell—let us help you tell yours!
