BLACKSTONE CALLING CARD RETAINS TELECOM MARKETING COMPANY
Blackstone Calling Card, one of the nation's leading providers of prepaid products and services, announced today its partnership with industry-leading public relations and marketing firm, R&C Public Relations. R&C Public Relations (RCPR), specialists in telecommunications marketing, will now represent Blackstone Calling Card in its upcoming national rollout campaign. Blackstone, with over 1,650 distributors outside of Florida, and over 7,800 retail accounts in South Florida, New Jersey, and Venezuela, has rapidly become the country's premier provider of prepaid telecommunications products and services. Product offerings now include prepaid calling cards, prepaid wireless, prepaid paging, and prepaid Internet service. The company's tremendous growth has prompted the need for an outside marketing vendor. "We are thrilled to be part of the Blackstone team," says Clare Morgan, vice president and COO of RCPR. "As longtime practitioners in the industry of telecommunications, we have witnessed the rise and fall of many prepaid calling card providers. It is exciting for us to now represent the strongest wholesaler in the industry." Internal Blackstone marketing director, Dave Goldfarb, adds, "Our company has expanded into many new directions. R&C's extensive knowledge of the telecommunications industry will certainly be beneficial in the development of our upcoming product rollouts." Blackstone Calling Card is a leading provider of prepaid telecommunications products and services. Blackstone offers the industry's widest assortment of prepaid phone cards, prepaid wireless, prepaid paging, and prepaid Internet services.
