212 Communications is a rapidly growing public relations, strategic communications and crisis communications firm launched in 2013. 212 stands for 212 degrees, the boiling point of water. The name matches its strategists’ approach, enthusiasm and energy they bring to their work. 212 turns up the heat!

The firm also specializes in connecting and bridging gaps between corporations planning large developments and neighboring communities, and representing corporations, trade associations, government, investors and individuals in crisis situations. 212 works with clients in industries ranging from technology, finance, government, banking and real estate development, to consumer products, nonprofits and environment.

A former executive at Weber Shandwick, one of the largest public relations firms in the world, Erica believed she could deliver big-agency public relations expertise, strategy and know-how to small and mid-sized companies in the Baltimore/Washington region. She quickly realized her skills – strategic communications and unmatched organizational talents that help communications teams operate more efficiently – were in high demand.
In 2015, Erica’s Weber colleague, Bill Atkinson, joined 212 Communications. A former business and investigative reporter for 20 years, Bill spent a career covering businesses in crisis as a journalist, and now helps companies navigate the choppy waters. He understands the media, thinks strategically, relishes research and investigative work, and isn’t afraid to challenge the media when they are wrong.
211 degrees can serve a purpose but 212 is the extra degree - the extra degree that will bring exponential results.
When the water starts boiling, it is foolish to turn off the heat.
