Caron Butler, Two-Time NBA All-Star & 14-Year NBA Veteran

“Swanson Communications has gone above and beyond my expectations. They have worked in my best interest every step of the way and have helped me gain a lot more exposure in the media. I recommend Swanson Communications to any athlete because they can help generate the positive publicity players need as they start out in the league and throughout their career.”


Bruce Binkow, President, Integrated Sports on the Mayweather vs. Pacquiao Fight

“The PR campaign for Mayweather vs. Pacquiao was masterful. Kelly and her team pulled off the impossible — creating a cohesive strategy and executing with precision and skill — all while operating under unbelievable tension and scrutiny from diverse factions within the promotion.  I was blown away.”


Bernard Hopkins, Boxing Great and Future Hall of Famer

“As an athlete, working with Swanson Communications has been an unbelievably positive experience not only on a professional level, but on a personal one as well. As far as I'm concerned, Swanson Communications is the best PR firm not only in boxing, but all of sports. I have worked with Kelly and her team for the last 10 years, and I have to thank them for everything they have done for my career and the promotion of my fights.” 


Tim Smith, Vice President of Communications, Haymon Boxing Management 

“Swanson Communications is a top-flight public relations firm. As a sports reporter at the New York Times and a sports columnist at New York Daily News for over two decades, I had the opportunity to work with Kelly Swanson and her team at Swanson Communications on several occasions. Now as the head of communications for Haymon Boxing Management, I work with them on a daily basis. In both capacities I’ve always found them to be smart, energetic, creative and professional in all their dealings.”


Barry Baum, Executive VP & Chief Communications Officer, Barclays Center

“You are the best at what you do, and our favorite to work with. Thanks for making our events such a success.” 


Cindy Katz, Talent Producer, FOX Sports

“I work with a variety of PR companies on a daily basis. It is evident that Swanson Communications goes the extra mile for their clients in their creativity and imagination.  They display a clear and concise vision which is evident in their hard work, dedication and an ability to think outside the box.” 


Charlie Moynihan, Bureau Producer, ESPN on the Mayweather vs. Pacquiao Fight

“I want to personally thank you for the assistance and access you provided ESPN over the past 8+ weeks.  It was a pleasure to work in conjunction with you in what was one of the greatest sporting spectacles ever.  I know there were some tough roads to navigate on both ends but ultimately it was a wonderful promotion.  And you topped it off by maneuvering Floyd to the SportsCenter set post-fight. We did nearly 2.5 hours of post-fight coverage with unbelievable ratings. Again, I thank you for being you and I thank you and your staff as well.”


Bob Velin, Sports Editor, USA Today

“Swanson Communications scores a knockout in the boxing business. They are on top of all the breaking news with their prompt press releases, consistently offer up compelling story ideas and one-on-one interviews with their fighters and of course, handle public relations for two of the biggest names in the sport, Floyd “Money” Mayweather and Bernard “The Alien” Hopkins. If there is a big event in boxing, you can bet SwanComm will be brought in to help run it.”


Barry Wilner, Writer, Associated Press

“I have known Kelly and worked with her for more than a decade. She is bright, energetic, creative and extremely diligent. She knows her way around such divergent sports as boxing and the Olympics. Kelly also is adept at working in the entertainment and sponsorship fields.”


Kurt Badenhausen, Senior Editor, Forbes 

“Swanson Communications has been a tremendous resource in Forbes’ coverage of boxing with its unparalleled access to the top players in the sport.”

"The Swanson Communications team shouldered a hell of a burden with the Jack vs. DeGale promotion this past week. I don't know how you made all of that work, but major props to you all for doing just that. Of course, the reward, such that it is, is just another week of fight-hyping, but we knew that was the nature of this crazy game when we entered it, right?"
