Leverage PR, an Austin-based marketing and public relations firm specializing in the financial services, technology and real estate sectors founded by Joy Schoffler in 2010, has been acquired by leading strategic marketing and public relations firm Caliber Corporate Advisers.

“I am incredibly proud of everyone who has been a part of the Leverage PR team over the years.
