“The Boys & Girls Clubs of Providence has been working with Cerio Communications for a number of years to lead our public relations efforts. During this time, I’ve consistently been impressed not only with Michael’s ability to generate media coverage, but also with his professionalism, responsiveness, and ability to handle multiple projects at once. When the Boys & Girls Club took on a complete website rebuild, we were able to lean heavily on Michael to develop copy and manage the project with our vendor—both of which helped lead to an exceptional finished product. I would not hesitate to recommend Cerio Communications to other organizations and businesses looking for an engaging communications professional who is well connected in Rhode Island’s media community.”

“Cerio Communications has a good grasp of the events of the day and follows through quickly when called upon for news request. Michael is someone who gets it done on a regular basis when working with the media.”

“As a writer, editor, and media relations professional Michael Cerio has been a valuable member of the Lifespan Development Communications team in support of Rhode Island Hospital, Hasbro Children’s Hospital, Bradley Hospital, The Miriam Hospital, and Newport Hospital. Michael is diligent in every aspect of his work, from the quality of his writing, to the scrutiny of his proofreading and adherence to deadlines, to the media coverage he generates. He is also able to move nimbly from project to project while always keeping the client’s goals—and the reader’s needs–foremost in mind. I would recommend Cerio Communications for any publication or media relations project.”

“While the relationship between journalists and public relations representatives has often been characterized as tense, my experiences with Michael Cerio of Cerio Communications could not be more pleasant. Unlike many PR agents, Michael has an acute understanding of what the media industry is like. He is sensitive to deadlines, and understands exactly the types of stories that appeal to my readers. Rather than sending out generic press releases, Michael becomes a storyteller himself, tailoring his pitches to the communities I cover and making it next to impossible to turn down his requests.”

“When the opportunity presented itself, I could not pass up the chance to add Michael to join our team at PrimeTime Magazine, where he has proven to be a valuable writer on our staff. In his writing, he is able to truly capture the atmosphere of any situation, and makes the people he interviews feel comfortable. Moreover, he actively seeks out feedback in order to continue honing his craft. I look forward to continuing to work with him in the future.”
