“Our mission is to nurture authentic connections between brands and audiences, and the work that has earned a nod from PR Daily does exactly that,” said Mower’s SVP and Head of Public Relations & Public Affairs Trish Nugent. “Whether sharing the triumphant story of a young man overcoming a health crisis, or inspiring wanderlust with a solar eclipse experience, the work our colleagues produced raises the bar.”

Campaign: Abiomed: “Tiny but Mighty: World’s Smallest Heart Pump Makes Huge Difference in Heart Health Awareness”  

Mower’s PR work for Abiomed focused on sharing the life-saving impact of its Impella® heart pump through patient stories like that of Kyle Hewlett, a 24-year-old who survived a near-death heart attack. Using Hewlett’s story, and proximity to New York City’s top-ranking media market, Mower secured media placements on regional and national networks to emphasize the device’s life-saving abilities and build on Abiomed’s positive public perception. 

Campaign: The Lake House on Canandaigua: “Shine Bright: A Solar Eclipse Spectacle for The Lake House on Canandaigua”  

In the path of totality for April 2024’s solar eclipse, Mower worked with The Lake House on Canandaigua to design an immersive experience that would make the upstate New York retreat the go-to viewing destination during the event. We collaborated on a unique travel package and secured dozens of media placements in national travel and lifestyle media outlets, resulting in a staggering 602 million impressions and near-total occupancy for the eclipse.
