Brian Chandler, APR, Founder & CEO

great work, excellent results

Marine Marketing

driven by passion

Driven from a passion for boating and fishing, Brian Chandler, founder & CEO of Commonwealth Public Relations, made the decision more than 10 years ago to expand his firm's book of business and work to support companies in the marine boating and fishing industries. While the firm still offers all services to companies across a wide array of industry sectors, marine marketing has become one area of excellence.

As a result, the firm has been chosen as the marine marketing agency for companies such as Sportsman Boats, Phenom Yachts, Shakespeare Marine, TowBoatUS, Barker Boatworks, Sea Tow Services International, and more.
