to the theory that PR is the best strategy for building brands from

General Atlantic Partners and Capital Z Partners fund the launch
of the New York-based PR firm LandersMadden, LLC as a compliment

clients. The new agency's co-CEO's, Maureen Landers and Machie Madden,
previously directed b-b accounts for Middleberg Euro.
