(LOS ANGELES, CA) -- As part of its never-ending effort to provide the best possible representation, Versatile Media Group is proud to announce that it is merging with adult public relations firm Pipeline-Media. The move will expand Pipelineís reach and allow VMG to focus on the changing needs of its clients.
April Storm will continue to represent both adult and mainstream clients. Her new focus will be on the needs of adult clients crossing over into mainstream, charity events and mainstream clients. The day to day needs of adult and fetish clients will be handled by Pipeline-Media.
''The industry is more challenging than ever,'' says April. ''The changing demands of our clients have made now the perfect time to make this move. It will allow me to continue to provide our clients with the best service in both adult and mainstream. Pipeline-Media has the experience and expertise to handle the adult clients, freeing up time for me to focus on cross over ventures, charity work and other mainstream needs.''
Though a new company, Pipeline-Media brings a wealth of experience and some innovative ideas to the table. They specialize in adult PR and social networking management, working closely with industry professionals to facilitate web design, head shots, clip store management and content exchange shoots.
Pipeline Media President Tiki Pavelle is understandably excited about the partnership. ''April is the best publicist in the adult industry. Her experience will be a great asset for us. Providing quality service has been my main goal from day one with Pipeline-Media. Ethical, conscientious and effective representation is what we are about. We pride ourselves on integrity and innovative ideas to help our clients with their PR needs. That is why I approached XRCO Hall of Famer Roger Pipe to be the head writer for the company. His work is well known and he is highly regarded by the industry. With Aprilís guidance we can grow into an even stronger company.''
An adult industry veteran Pipe has been working as a freelance PR writer for over three years.
''I have known Roger for years,'' said April. ''He is a well respected critic, an excellent writer and a great friend. I have hired him periodically to help me with the writing side of things when I needed help meeting the demands of my clients. I have been really happy with his work and have encouraged him to use his skills and experience to get more involved in the public relations aspect of things. I was so happy when he and Tiki formed Pipeline-Media because I knew that they could take on a lot of the adult work while I focused on my cross over, mainstream and charity clients. Since we have worked together for a while already I know Rogerís work and I am comfortable working with him.''
Pipe is excited by the new opportunities presented by this merger. ''I have been working with April for a while now and I know how good she is at what she does. The chance to merge our new company with hers is just too perfect to pass up. Tiki and I have worked hard to build a company and provide great service to our clients. We can continue to do that and now offer our clients Aprilís expertise as well. It isnít often you find a way to match your strength with someone else's needs and go into business with someone you trust at the same time.''
Storm echoes those sentiments. ''As I have learned working with Tera Patrick and other adult stars, the needs of those who cross over into mainstream are specific and demand a great deal of attention. This merger will allow me to do more of that while still feeling confident that my adult clients will be taken care of.'' She adds, ''I am not turning my back on the adult industry. It has been like a family to me. I am just partnering with people I trust so that I can do what I do best.''
