CHICAGO September 3, 2014 - Zapwater Communications, Inc., an award-winning boutique public relations agency, announces the expansion of its business to the West Coast with the opening of an office in Los Angeles. Founded and based in Chicago, this is Zapwater’s second office. Zapwater Los Angeles will be located at 11601 Wilshire Blvd., Suite 500, Los Angeles, CA 90025. Nora Sarrawi, a vice president in Zapwater’s Chicago office, has relocated to Los Angeles to lead the office and drive the expansion.

“After working with several clients in Southern California, we began to build our presence and have realized the benefits of having a consistent team on-location," said David Zapata, president and founder of Zapwater. “In an industry built on relationships, we firmly believe in the importance of face-to-face meetings. This is true for traditional media relations, but more so for influencer relations and celebrity seeding. As our clients continue to grow, a Los Angeles office will make us a stronger partner.”

With almost a decade of experience focused primarily on lifestyle and consumer brands, Zapwater has emerged as one of the country’s premier creative boutique agencies. Throughout the past two years, Zapwater has won more than 40 major industry accolades, including Gold SABRE Awards, Bulldog Media Relations Awards, HSMAI Adrian Awards, and Publicity Club of Chicago Golden Trumpets.

“Our experience in the market leads us to believe there is an opportunity for an agency with our values and experience. Our individualized client approach and ability to drive results with any budget is a gap we can fill in Southern California,” continues Zapata.

Zapwater clients include Jewelers Mutual Insurance, Ball Horticultural, Pabst Brewing Company,,, GILT CITY, Forum Studios, Room & Board and dana hotel and spa.
