At Lobos 1707, the belief is if there’s not enough room at the table, you build a bigger table. “As storytellers and influencers of culture, we look forward to celebrating Lobos’ incredible quality and unique brand ethos,” said Cindi Berger, Chairman, R&CPMK. “We are thrilled to work with Dia and Diego, and eager to harness R&CPMK’s full creative and strategic expertise to help grow Lobos 1707 into a truly global, innovative, and iconic brand.” “We are thrilled to partner with a women-led organization like R&CPMK that embraces ‘Build a Bigger Table’ in the way they run their business,” said Simms. “I’ve personally worked with Cindi Berger for years, and the agency is a recognized industry leader, making them the perfect partners for this project.” “Following our vision to only work with people who feel like friends and family, choosing R&CPMK to lead our PR efforts was a no-brainer,” said Osorio. “From industry leader Cindi Berger to Ariel Moses and the team, they not only have a deep understanding of the brand and my vision; but also, they embody our ethos and morals. R&CPMK is incredibly committed and loyal to the authenticity of our message, and are intent on changing every industry standard with us.
