HBI was established in 1994 by communications veterans Bob Hope and Paul Beckham. In 2021, HBI entered into a merger with GPR Global, the South’s most prominent Hispanic public relations firm, adding Gina Espinosa-Meltzer as partner and former Atlanta Business Chronicle Executive Editor Mark Meltzer as Executive Vice President. The new partnership enhances HBI’s reputation as one of the nation’s top independent PR firms, and provides clients with creative ideas and successful results.
